I apologize for being a day late with this post. I pretty much lost the last two days of my life to being functionally blind, thanks to an eye infection in my right eye that caused my eye to be painful, swollen, blood shot, and extremely light sensitive. I couldn't wear my contact lenses and wearing my back-up glasses just made my eye water even more. So I was being as KIND as I could to myself and left my computer OFF for two whole days! I know, unheard of, right? I can't even say I suffered withdrawal. I slept most of Sunday... 4 hours in the middle of the day and then went to bed at 7:30 and slept another 12 hours. And Monday I did things that I didn't really need clear vision for - like laundry. Thankfully today the pain, swelling, and light sensitivity is gone and I am back in action! Now if the redness would just go away... But as luck would have it, we are having another massive snow storm and our Board of Director's meeting for tomorrow is cancelled. So I don't have to drive into work and I don't have to worry about greeting directors with an ugly eye. I consider that to be the Universe's way of being KIND to me. Which just makes me smile.
And that is this week's challenge - SMILE at everyone you meet.
It is a gift to the person you smile at - and you never know when your smile and friendly greeting could turn an otherwise bad day for someone. And it is a gift to yourself - because when you are smiling, you can't help but feel happy! :)
