smile for you

smiling is infectious; you catch it like the flu,
when someone smiled at me today, i started smiling too.
i passed around the corner and someone saw my grin
when he smiled i realised i'd passed it on to him.
i thought about that smile then i realised its worth,
a single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth.
so, if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it undetected
let's start and epidemic quick, and get the world infected!
everyone needs a smile!!! (anonymous author)

what inspires you?

animals, nature, conversation, traveling, music, art, photography, design books/magazines, yoga, and websites like these;
... to name just a few (lol - i could get real carried away here as i love crafting and design and adore hearing/reading about others passions and inspirations). my inspirations trigger ideas or send my thoughts off on adventurous journeys :)

cute furry little fullas

"last saturday at paddington markets we had two furry little fullas (baby guinea pigs) stop by for a visit. they took centre stage on our stall and surprised customers and passers by! they fitted in just nicely in our little pens and farmyard. don't they look so cute!"

say yes ...

Yes is positive, it is can-do. It's the word you haul from your quiver when you want to take on the world with a smile. Saying 'yes' when you would usually say 'no' means rising above routine. It widens your experience. It's like opening a door ... and finding more doors behind it. Saying 'yes' changes the way you see the world and the way the world sees you. Smile and the world smiles back. When you change your mind, you change your experience. The same is true in reverse, and it applies not just to you and I, but to whole societies. Maybe saying 'yes' more often will help us believe it ... and take those small detours.
