I really enjoy the tips for making yourself happy at work. I especially like trying to smile every once in awhile. I live in a city of "smile-less mummy's" ( Los Angeles ) and after you have lived here long enough you become one too. I make up for it with the few friends I have who are probably my friends because they are light hearted and like to laugh which is hard to do without a smile.
Seeing someone in the workplace who never smiles does affect others around them and I have never understood how someone can do this day in and day out - not smile. And yet when you do see this person actually smile, one has to wonder if it is genuine ? And what was it that made that grumpy person actually laugh or crack a smile ?
Was it a genuine emotion of someone who had never smiled before ?
I try to give these people the benefit of the doubt but it is hard to forget the smile-less person they had always been.
