Change the World… With a Smile
Change the World, with a Smile… Does this even seem possible? Can a simple thing like a smile do anything, but make people think you’re happy? Is being happy a good thing? Is a smile contagious like a yawn? I will say, to all the above, YES!!! A smile is very contagious. Be very careful with using it you may force one on someone not wanting too, or even feeling like smiling. When my oldest daughter Becky was small she would get a grumpy looking face, mad or angry about something, like bedtime… Just smiling at her and asking her if there was a smile hiding inside, would make her smile. We would say, “I see a smile in there.” This would make her smile even more. Becky knew we could get her to smile and she would fight it, but as we smiled at her and looked real close, we would find that smile and it came out like a bright sunny day… Even at bedtime!!!
What does it really take to change the world? An Idea! If that idea was to be nice, and to smile, would that not be a good one? I would like to think being nice, on it’s own would make the world a better place. Now add a smile, together they are even more powerful. Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone felt this way? Our days would be better if we all made a little more effort to be nicer. Not role over and play dead nice, or nice at all costs. Just a Smile, maybe a Please, and Thank You, would be nice! It seems that the words, “Your Welcome” have been changed to a grunt of some kind. I wish we all could remember, that a grunt is not, “You are very welcome!” or, “Your welcome.” These few words sound so much nicer.
Ok off my soapbox and back to changing the world… Smiles are what make people know you are happy, happy to see them, happy your alive. A smile has so much power it makes people want to be around you, maybe even listen to what you say, as long as it is positive. (Negativity never gets followers for long.) I don’t even know if you can be a negative person and be smiling all the time. When it comes right down to it, the world you will change with a smile is… Your world! If the world changes from your smile, (and I know it will) it’s your fault… Congratulations. Now go out and prove me wrong, or right, just see what happens when you smile… Change the World!!!
