“Let us choose for ourselves our path in life, and let us try to strew that path with flowers.”

Every day in my inbox I receive a “Moment of Happiness” email from New York Times best-selling author, Gretchen Rubin.
I fell in love with this quote immediately when I read it the other day. It just spoke to me of joy, happiness, sunshine, and positivity.
Now I suppose you can strew (or per Merriam-Webster.com – scatter) real or silk flowers if you want. What a way to liven things up at work!
However, let your flowers be good deeds or random acts of kindness.
Leave lots of them along your life’s path. Comfort a widow, buy the person in line behind you their coffee, pass the luck on by giving the penny you found to a stranger, or send flowers anonymously to someone.
Your flowers will bring smiles to lots of people’s faces and just might make their day.
So choose your path and strew whatever type of flower you desire with wild reckless abandon.
Oh and don’t forget to strew lots of the most important flower – your smile. 😀
Who will you give a flower to today?
