She decided to change the world one smile at a time. It was a big job but she was up to the task. – Queenisms™
Platitudes like “change the world with your smile,” might seem a little hokey, and we’ve never been too concerned about being called hokey, but it’s true. Think about the way our day gets worse when someone is rude to us, doesn’t hold the door, is short or unhelpful when we have a question, is hurtful with their critique of us, adds to our burden by refusing simple kindnesses. Now think about how our day changes when someone says (and means) thank you, goes out of their way to help us solve a problem, sees and hears us when we ask a question and in general it all begins with a smile. A smile indicates openness and a willingness to listen and attempt to inject calm, joy, happiness and peace into a day. You can ignite happiness or snuff it out. Ignite it with a smile, won’t you.
