Earlier this summer, I read an article, “Happiness is Contagious”. While this study was geared toward heart health, the message was consistent. Be happy and make others happy too. It spreads like wildfire, even to people you don’t know.
If you’ve ever been the receiver of a kind act, I am sure you have felt the desire to pass it on. It is just one of those things. When Ben and I went on our honeymoon to Ireland over 10 years ago, we were out to dinner one evening. We were enjoying a nice conversation in this pub that was totally empty with the exception of one other couple. About halfway through our dinner this couple struck up a conversation with us and we got to talking about our travels. Later on the couple left and Ben and I went to pay for our check. Only we didn’t have one. That couple paid for it and had given the message of, “Many happy years, enjoy your travels.”.
Not only did that couple pass on the happiness that evening but for the (almost) 11 years following. Ben and I talk about that moment and constantly share ways in which we can pass it on. We scheme often and talk about sharing goodness.
Zoe’s Kitchen, a Dallas based fast, casual restaurant concept serving a distinct menu of Mediterranean-inspired dishes, has created a Summer of Goodness program.
