DBSA Is Spreading Smiles
This is the last month for the DBSA “Positive Six Campaign”… And they are going out on a HIGH note with spreading smiles! A smile is a very power tool! I remember my Lincoln School’s 7th grade teacher had a sign on her desk that said: “Smile cause it makes people wonder what you’ve been up to.” I never forgot it cause it made me laugh… so now I smile all the time.
This month’s cartoon is the last in a series of the 6 cartoons for the DBSA, that’s me spreading smiles.
“we can Do something unexpected and nice for six (+6) peoples this month (a friend, a family member, a co-worker, or a stranger). Smiles are contagious…so spread the laughter and love!”

I am excited about this month’s DBSA Positive 6 cartoon. I really like this cartoon and I think it’s the funniest cartoon to date. If you’re not sure what the +6 is, please read over The DBSA “Positive Six Campaign” blog post. Then check out JUNE: Positive Change Challenge and the JULY – Give It a Try Challenge cartoon.
Once you’re caught up, you will understand this cartoon more and each month’s challenge after this one. So, here is August’s cartoon for the DBSA, and the challenge is: to make new friends.
New Connections Challenge
Reach out to four (+4) individuals this month to make a small gesture (start a conversation with someone you’d like to cultivate a friendship with. phone call, email, note, etc.) connect with a new friend or acquaintance….or reconnect with an old one you’ve lost touch with.
I’m going to make my NEW CONNECTIONS by visiting each of Psych Central blogs and then trying and leave a valuable, coherent comment. That is my goal this month. Why not come and join me for some blog hopping? Check out the links below.
