SMILES ARE POWERFUL
Posted August 25, 2013 by Jade Sparks
My vacation is over for now but I’ll find the time to do it again! I met a bunch of new friends and I’m going to be missing a lot of people until I get to see them again. It was really great to just smile every day, laugh, and have fun... even the squirrels made my day that much better because I usually don’t see them. Needless to say, on my way back there were a lot of bittersweet feelings. The environment I had just spent a week in was so similar to where I grew up that in one instant I was reminded of how homesick I was. How could I leave such a place and not be saddened?
I ended up in Vegas for quite a few hours, completely by random. Soul searching in this crazy city? Okay, I’m game. I got myself a drink and a meal and sat down. Someone spoke up, said I looked very sad for such a pretty young lady. I looked up, his clothes in tatters, a wide grin on his face. He appeared homeless. I sat there in silence for a moment, racking my brain for why I would ever frown. I mustered up a pathetic...
"I made a lot of happy memories with friends and then I had to walk away from it all."
He simply laughed and said - "Who said you’re bound to the location you’re returning to? Do whatever makes you happy, sweetheart. Walk the world with nothing but love in your heart for all and happiness will follow you. You’ll run into good people and bad people out there, but never lose touch with who you are."
We talked a lot more after that and before we parted ways I gave him money so he could eat for a few days.
My vacation was successful, I had mind blowing sexy times with a beautiful lady friend and my faith in humanity was restored by the kind words of a complete stranger. Everyone needs a little holiday like that at least once in their life :)
