We do not know how cheap the seeds of happiness are or we should scatter them more often.
To speak kindly does not hurt the tongue.
These two quotes mean more to me after this past week than you could ever imagine. Life is hard, difficult, fun, and exhausting. A smile, or a kind word can mean so much to someone along the way.
A smile is cheer to you and me
The cost is nothing –it’s given free
It comforts the weary –gladdens the sad
Consoles those in trouble –good or bad…
Unlike most blessings for which we pray
It’s one thing we keep when we give it away.
NaBloPoMo 2012 – Day 13
Do you smile when you pass someone? Growing up in a small town, we waved to everyone driving by, or even walking. It was what we did. Never really thought about it. We smiled at people we liked and didn’t like.
Living in a larger city, people look at you funny if you wave at them passing in a car. With walking, people are friendlier, but always look uncomfortable doing it like it is forced.
I love to smile. It is an automatic hello, welcome, and acknowledgement. It doesn’t hurt to smile. It is the same in all languages. Yes. Smiling in some countries people look at me funny as well. Must not be a small town.
Smile at people today. Make them wonder what you have been up to. Make them feel comfortable when they walk into the room.
Smile. It may even make you happy.
