Hi Aaron, Amber, Alice, Alex, etc. etc. etc.,
I thought it would be easier to address everybody by name…but considering I’m trying to reach an entire planet I had to find a shortcut.
So, let’s begin alphabetically with the letter A. If you are an Abdullah, Abigail, Abraham, Alexandra (you get the drift) – please pay attention. If your name begins with any other letter in the alphabet you may ignore this letter as you will be addressed later.
Now, Aoife, Ari, Alison, I could go through the niceties of, ‘How have you been?’ or ‘I hope you’re doing well’ but let’s cut to the chase; the world is in a sorry state and it’s high time we did something about it. Don’t be scared, I’m not asking you to do EVERYTHING (that’s why we have the rest of the alphabet 😉 ). However, if you make an effort with your small part it will begin a ripple effect that will change the world. And how awesome to be able to say that you, Letter-A-Name, started it all.
So, Andrew, Angelica, Anjali, Anton, etc. you have been assigned the duty of the simple yet very important job of “smiling”.
Yes, that is all you need to do. Smile ~ (S)mile (M)ore (I)t (L)ooks (E)nticing!
You see, Albert, Alma, Alana, by smiling longer and more often you will find that the person you are smiling AT will smile back at you, and, odds are, will then smile at another person who will also smile back at them, etc. etc. etc. creating a landslide of happiness.
I have never professed to be a mathematical genius but it stands to reason that if the happiness quotient goes up, then the sadness quotient (you guessed it) goes down. This is the first step in a 26-part plan of healing the world.
Addison, Alexis, Ariel – get out your toothpaste, give yourself a little flossing and smile! Oh, and try and give an extra sparkly smile to people whose name starts with the letter “B” – cuz they’re next.
