be the reason someone smiles today

When is a light sentiment, no longer light?

When the rest of the world seems so overwhelming that every extra smile counts.

The confusion, fear, apprehension, stress and massive distraction layer can be overwhelming to all of us.

So I thought that my Sunday quotation today would be an invitation to all of you to consider spending an extra few minutes of your life today going out of your way to make someone else smile. Send them an old photograph of them that you treasure, a funny meme, a link to a video on YouTube that will make both of you feel joyous.

In the end, it is not the content that matters, it’s the effort on your part to go the extra distance to make another human being feel warm, cared about, and appreciated.

With all of the insanity that we are navigating our way through, I cannot help but feel that a few extra generous helpings of warmth and appreciation will go along way.

I was talking with a friend on Friday who expressed that “I hit my button and this quotation goes out to all of you with a single press.” I explained that that would create a group thread that would be untenable for everyone and shared that I send these out one at a time to each recipient. They asked me why I would take the time to do that every day?

That answer is simple.

Because I can.

Make someone smile today, it’s one of the single best investments you could ever make in yourself.

Wishing you a gorgeous Sunday❤️

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
