Recently, I was driving in to work and stopped in traffic when I looked out of my window to take in the nice summer morning. As I was looking out the window, I saw a man in a work uniform walking on the sidewalk listening to an iPod and singing. As he passed my window, I could hear him belting out a few words to the song. He was so moved by the music that I believe I could feel his grin.
This gentleman was a perfect reminder that sometimes you need to do something that is good for the soul. Maybe it is loudly singing your favorite song and not caring who listens. Maybe it is reading a “guilty pleasure” book. It may even be something as simple as looking at a photograph of a loved one, but sometimes you just need to do something that makes you smile.
