One year ago, we asked you a question. Could you write down one thing that made you happy every single day for a week? For a month? For a year? Longer?
It’s been one year since we launched the Smile Project Ambassador Program as your opportunity to be part of a collective movement for joy. We believe that simple changes make a big difference and we know that when we are at our best, we have more to give to our loved ones and our communities.
When someone joined the Ambassador Program, they were embracing the challenge to look for the good each day and to encourage others to do the same. They became joy recorders. And they began to change their worlds.
Each day, our private Facebook group comes to life with people sharing joys of new houseplants, cozy sweaters, and supportive loved ones. Each day, ambassadors post on their personal social media or write in their own journals what has made them smile. We know that each time we prioritize our own joy—even on the hard days—we experience mindset shifts of gratitude and awareness.
I am so proud of each person who has taken up this journey. Even when a day is missed. Even when it doesn’t seem possible. Even when dropping out and in and out again. I am so proud of each ambassador. Thank you for being part of our story.
