I've always been told that I have a great smile and that it puts people in a good mood. Even on my worst days, I tend provides others a smile - good ripples - because I truly believe that how I treat one person can affect a bunch of people who I might not even have contact with and so on and so on. While I'm hardly a saint and get rightly-and-not-rightly annoyed with people at times, I always try to leave them with a smile.
I must confess, though, that all of that good will and smiling flies out the window when I drive. I'm the angry Jersey girl behind the wheel, cursing old people, tailgaters and anyone who doesn't know how to merge. Such wasted energy. In most cases, the cause of my ire probably didn't even know it and in if the driver did, what did I accomplish? Not only was I letting someone else steal my joy on preposterous grounds, but there was a chance I was then putting them into a mood that could affect whoever they came into contact with.
I don't want bad ripples, just good ripples.
My wish this week, as silly as it might seem, is just to be able to continue to smile and be joyful. To find some calm when I'm driving that has escaped me in the past.
(I probably won't get to each person's individual wishes until tomorrow, so for tonight know, my lovely wishcasters, that as you wish for yourselves, so I truly, truly wish for you also!)
