Who said that when you turn 50 you become invisible?
No, I’m not 50 yet but I’m around 24 months off … I had my 48th birthday just a few days ago and someone mentioned this “invisible” comment.
I was like, “what? that’s just silly!”
Tonight, I was driving home and came to a set of traffic lights. I was smiling to myself because I had such a fun night seeing a movie as part of those “girls night out” activities.
I felt a presence looking at me and so I turned my head to see a very handsome man with the biggest smile looking right over at me. It was so incredibly flattering so I naturally felt to smile right back at him! We held a good gaze which for most would normally become an uncomfortable feeling yet we were both confident with our smile gazing! I assume he had a good night too! What a lovely moment after hearing that silly comment a few days prior.
A friend I know is in Bali and she said recently that everyone smiles over there. It reminded me to be mindful on the impact of a smile. It really cost nothing and you can be any age to give one out or receive one.
We should do it more and I can guarantee … you’ll feel seen when you get one back!
