Pleasant Surprises

We all need a surprise at times.  We need something that interrupts the hum-drum ho-hum of the day that frequently is the mode in which we operate.  Something that breaks the routine can change one from uninspired automaton to a smiling dynamo.

It often doesn't take much to flip that switch.  It can be an unexpected smile or a compliment.  It can be a phone call that is upbeat and positive, or, it can be a chance encounter with someone you haven't seen in awhile.

Knowing the positive impact those little surprises can have on you, do you take the time to spring them on those around you?  Do you put a little sunshine into other people's lives upon occasion?  If not, why not?  It doesn't take much effort and the rewards can be great.  After all, I've noticed that it's contagious.  It might just come back to you.
