Delivering Happiness

We can choose to be happy or not…but the choice is ours. I try to make a conscious choice to be happy more often than not because…it feels better. We have a local UPS driver who is always smiling, waving, beeping at everyone. He knows my kids names, my dog’s name… he walks through this little town like he’s the mayor. He must do very well at Holiday time because he’s like a family member to everyone! He could choose to just run around and deliver and pick up packages and be in a constant hurry all the time, but no…This guy chooses to be happy every day that I’ve ever seen him. Today my 13 yr old said "Mom, he must own UPS, cause he cares so much!" Hmmm. I’m sure he realizes that he’s representing UPS, but the truth is, most UPS drivers are not this friendly. They have bottom line numbers to meet and this guy is super busy too but he chooses to not only deliver packages, but deliver happiness. He is like a bouncing smile in this area. It’s amazing what a smile can do for others. He puts a smile on everyone he sees everyday. You can’t help but feel happy when you see this UPS guy. Are you delivering happiness?
