A Smile A Day …

From the TinyApps Blog:

Motto had a patient who committed suicide from the Golden Gate in 1963, but the jump that affected him most occurred in the seventies. “I went to this guy’s apartment afterward with the assistant medical examiner,” he told me. “The guy was in his thirties, lived alone, pretty bare apartment. He’d written a note and left it on his bureau. It said, ‘I’m going to walk to the bridge. If one person smiles at me on the way, I will not jump.’

I’m thinking we should smile more often. Sometimes I even get accused that I need to be more serious, but I’ve seen people who are nothing but serious, and they are, more often than not, miserable. I imagine that guy who jumped to his death in the account above was pretty serious. Think we should smile more often?

    I’ve made a New Year resolution to remember how to have fun. It’s difficult to remember sometimes.
