“A smile costs nothing but means much.” – Author Unknown

This quote lives in the back of my mind and is a big part of my life. It helps keep me on track to what is important to me in life. The power of smiles is amazing. Just one smile can lighten a room, make someone’s day or change a person’s mood. They are contagious, those smiles. Is it humanly possible NOT to smile when they surround you? I am doubtful, and I am not even tempted to try. Sometimes when I encounter someone who is not smiling or seems angry, I make it a game to try getting them to flash me a smile. Give it a try and see how easy it is. And the next time you are having a bad day, just shoot someone a smile. I bet you will get one in return and you will be one step closer to smiling again.
