“The world is like a mirror you see? Smile and your friends smile back.”
A lot of us disregard or underestimate the power our attitudes have in affecting our daily lives, and the lives of those around us. We’ve all heard that smiling is contagious, but have you tried it? And if you have tried it, did you try it without expecting a goal or reward?
Smile to smile, for the sake of smiling, enjoy how it makes you feel, but don’t expect it to instantly change everyone around you. Once you do this, and smile without expectation, do it naturally with a slight smile, not a crazy-person smile. You will see your attitude change, you will see more smiling around you.
Do not expect results, and you will get results. Smile not to make others happy, and it will make others happy. Do not forget moderation, for as quoted from The Black Hole (1979), “…too much sun makes a desert”.
