I thought about this for a while, and found it a good topic for today's post. I was sitting in church today, tired, sleepy, and hungry. I wasnt smiling at all. I see a man, sitting on floor, right infront of me. He was dark skinned, unshaved, white haired, wrinkled face. He seemed VERY poor. I must've stared at him for atleast 15 minutes (he probably thinks im weird now), and he finally looked at me, and smiled. He smiled all day long, it wasnt a massive teeth-showing smile, it was one of those hopeful smiles. I could tell he had nothing, His clothes looked scruffy, he look scruffy, but yet he put on a smile, and i can only imagine he was hoping for better days to come. I admired him today.
If he's lost everything, had no money, and no family, nothing, and yet managed to put a genuine smile on, only one explanation. Simple mind. Why are we depressed sometimes? because we set our expectations too high, and get bummed. Thats the only reason.
Moral of the story, is keep it simple. Set your hopes up high, and if all fails, and you get knocked down, get up and set your hopes higher, and trust me, you will get there, no matter what the issue is.
