POWER OF THE SMILE

`It matters how we make other people feel’

One day I was having a bad morning, ( I really don’t like mornings!). So I met this man who is about 4’6 feet I guess, Am about 5’5 feet. Didn’t know him, so was trying my best to walk fast as I didn’t want to give anyone a second look in fear they would notice how awful I felt.

The man to my surprise gave me a big smile as he looked direct into my eyes and said to me, “Good morning ma’am”. Wow, this instantly created a different kind of feeling inside of me, I didn’t know the man and he wasn’t obligated either to even say a word to me. This blessed my day and completely changed my mentality more.

It doesn’t take much to create a positive impact in someone else’s life who you don’t know. Many people have got big opportunities just by starting with that magic smile to a stranger. These smiles start conversations and connect people.

I learned a big lesson that day, I don’t have to offer much to everyone but if I can be kind and bless someone’s day even by giving them a big smile, that is worth a million material things I cannot afford. It matters how we make other people feel. I would like to continue using the power of the smile to make other people’s days better and also to connect with new people.

Because, there’s a lot of power in connecting with new people everyday.
