I'm fascinated by the ability to drop who you are expected to be, and step out, well heeled (Manolo Blahniks anyone?) as someone totally different. If you could leave the house as someone else who would you be? Can you be sure there isn't a part of you that isn't that person already? I am convinced that the people we look up to are our ideals because they are already somewhat like us. Are we drawn to those we resemble or do we resemble the people to whom we are most attracted? I'm attracted to people who are able to take life in stride. Those who are laid back and always smiling. I would leave the house as one of these people. For today, tis a good fit. Today is Smile Power Day - a day to smile and pass that smile along.
It is also Father's Day. This is a strange day for me. It's the kind of day to call up your dad, dust off your golf clubs and hit the links. These days, I'm a better golfer than he is, which means I'd have to play badly to let him win. Not. One thing I'll never leave the house as is a good sport. I live for the victory. I instead will take the day to golf with friends. I promise I'll have a few good laughs, and with any luck, I'll win. If not, I'll smile anyway (and lie on the score card).
