“The one thing I do every day”
Think about your routine, we all have one. Everyone’s usual daily routine includes eating, showering and sleeping. Daily, we all do a variety of tasks. But there’s one thing you would never want to miss out on during your day. A thing that is typically soothing, comfortable, and very addicting. It turns into a drug that you enjoy daily. It gets increasingly noticeable and overwhelming to you and your surroundings as the days, months, and years pass by. For me, “The one thing I do every day” is to make someone smile.
There has rarely been a day I don’t make someone happy, whether a friend or just a stranger. Although I started this just a couple of years back. I have made it the one thing I do every day. Even on the busiest day, I would find time to call a friend, send a sincere “how are you?” message to someone, return every call. I just make sure I am doing something to make someone feel loved and less lonely.
Over the years of practising this, I have realized that it is so helpful. Not only to the friend I’m checking up on but also to me. I do this mostly at night and it helps make me calm and less tired from the day’s activity. For me, this is the best sleeping pill.
Every day we have records of suicides all over the world ranging from young teenagers to adults. People need to be checked upon, people need to know that they matter. We are all going through difficult things. But a message from a loved one at a particular time could change a lot! If a message can go so far can you imagine what a call will do? How far can a visit go? Checking up on a friend/family/associate can change a lot of things in a moment.
For a stranger, you can’t go visit a total stranger in his/her house. But there are little but lovely things we can always do to put a smile on a stranger’s face. Ranging from offering a lift, to the simple lovely compliment (we all love a nice compliment).
Telling them they look pretty/beautiful or you think they have a great sense of fashion. This could seriously brighten up their day. I remember walking up to a lady sometime last week and told her she looked very beautiful. She immediately gave me a very happy smile telling me “thank you”. Then and there I felt like my day was complete although it was still morning.
This does not imply that you check in on each of your Social media “followers” regularly. It isn’t telling you to sacrifice yourself to the level of fatigue by ignoring your demands or emotional state. It’s not to say that you can’t set reasonable limits. On where you can provide, when you can provide it, and how much you can provide. It’s just a way of expressing, in a broad sense, that you should constantly check in on your friends.
I became absolutely disoriented a few months ago as if I were pursuing something that didn’t exist. I was pursuing joy, prosperity, and love, yet I ended up in pain at the end of it all.
What was happening to me was a mystery to me. I opened my phone and decided to make sure someone wasn’t going through a situation as bad as mine. I went online and texted a friend, I started a conversation. Luckily for me, it wasn’t long before he told me what he was going through. I was in a position to help and I had the means so I helped. After doing “the one thing I do every day” I felt so happy. I immediately felt like I had the best day ever.
Your daily objective is made up of the key significant goals. This drives you to get out of bed in the morning. An objective can powerfully impact successes, provide focus, and give value to one’s life.
To many, the goal is a sense of worth in their work, a sense of accomplishment. To me, the one thing I do every day which has indeed brought joy into my life is putting a smile on someone’s face every single day.
