Smile: a gesture that shows you are pleased. A reaction of approval. An expression of joy.
Its so easy to smile and pass on the a little joy to others. Just do it and see the effect it has on your surroundings and how good it will make you feel. Ofcourse. in many instances you will be faced with a blank look or complete indifference. Just ignore them and go on giving smiles to everyone.
I realized the value of a smile from a beggar. He was begging and I did not have my wallet with me, I just smiled at him and said sorry. He replied by saying (in our own native language) " thankyou for the smile that was nice" something to that nature. From then on I try to atleast smile when I am unable to do something for them. There will be those who would care less for your smile but there also can be others who will feel good by this simple gesture
Try it and see. Smile and the world will smile with you? No. Smile and you have a chance of making someone happy and getting joy in return for a mere face reaction which costs nothing and involves the least effort.
Lets make the world a better place…….so look around and …smile.
