Once upon a time, when I still worked in the Courts, when Sunday night came along, I would think about what I was going to wear. My smart dark skirt suit; my white starched shirt; my cufflinks; my smart court shoes from Hobbs….! As I reflect on that, and on this Sunday, my thoughts turn to what it really means to be dressed for action! Sure, my outerwear is important. A statement of my personality and personal style. Perhaps a hidden message urging people to ‘take me seriously’ or a subliminal protest against the formality of the corporate world by wearing skinny jeans and heels to business meetings! I suppose there is any number of images that we try to portray with the clothes we wear. You tell me yours.
But I want to be truly dressed for action! I want to be wrapped in light and love and ready to take on the world as my authentic self. Me. What is the easiest and most natural way for me to do that? With my smile. I want to show up each day with the best smile I can muster. Because that’s just me.
So what about the days when you just don’t feel like smiling? Well those days will always be there in abundance! Perhaps on those days, if I stop looking inward, and start looking outward; if I choose to move my focus from feeling sorry for myself to, ‘ how can I be a blessing to someone today? ‘how can I serve someone today?’ ‘how can I shine a light on someone today?’, then maybe, just maybe, I will start to improve my outlook that day, and feel much better before the end of that day. All simply by radiating my little light and my little love, with my smile. So who will see your smile today?
