In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Silver Screen.”
I know in the context of the role of Dirty Harry, Clint Eastwood’s character means this line as an excuse to make a move so he can use his .44 Magnum on people, but I imagine this phrase in a different light.
Imagine if we all said this phrase daily and those around us actually did! Instead of holding grudges and having resentment and sadness and anger fill our world, we would live in a world where everyone would be happy because everyone else literally made their day!
So, how can we make one another’s day? The answer to that may be more simple than you think. A smile. A hug. A listening ear. Maybe you can do something that they can’t do for themselves and by helping them you make their day. The world is full of positive possibilities. I wish we would live in a world where instead of the impact of a bullet, or harsh word, or physical violence we lived in a world that truly practiced “going ahead and making someone else’s day!” If we did, maybe we all would feel a lot more lucky.
