THE POWER OF A SMILE






“If you see a friend without a smile; give him one of yours.”


“A smile you sent, will always return”


~ Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. ~
Thich Nhat Hanh








Smiling is an age old form of welcome, it shows that you are approachable and that things are well with you.


I am a girl who lives to smile, i am always smiling and you can hardly see a picture without my beautiful smile well in place, i smile with my teeth showing and i believe that thats the best kind of smile,


i have been told that people feel my smile even through the phone.








I have a story to tell you about the power of a smile,


In my life i come across differnt people and the one thing thats constant is that they all respond positively to a GENUINE smile , A fake smile can be spotted a mile off so its advisable to be sincere when smiling or better still frown because a fake smile implies sarcasm or mockery.




My family and i went out to renew our nigerian passport, so we had been waiting over 3 hrs in a fastfood close to the passport office and we were all beginning to feel frustrated when 2 men walked inside and began to chat in bini now note ( i am a benin girl), in the middle of our conversation my mum called my benin name an dthe men turne dto us an dasked if we were benin, and we said yes they proceeded to start discussing about how children of nowadays (meaning my siblings and i ) cant speak their mother tongue,


After a while the man said that when he walked in he noticed the smile on my face even in the midst of all the troubles that we had encountered and said co s of taht he was going to help us,




Am not saying that you should walk around witha silly smirk on your faces but looking like you lost a million bucks every second of a day is really annoying.


Please people smiles have been known to get people husbands, jobs, prayers etc,


not to mention that you look just plain ugly when you frown.




A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside. ~
Denis Waitley




If you're not using your smile, you're like a man with a million dollars in the bank and no checkbook. ~




PS not every one lips can still look sexy even with a frown like mine (lol)




SO NOW TURN THAT FROWN AROUND.

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy..." how this quote got to me...

When I was young, I read a story on the worth of a smile. A man left his whole inheritance to a little girl who smiled when she came on stage.Since then I have been reminding myself of the need to smile (let someone leave me his inheritance, lol).

A smile is indeed attractive

It's a nice thing to smile oooo, it is very infectious.But should we smile uneccessarily? I don't believe in forcing a smile on my face for no reason though. In the society where I live, you see so many people putting on fake smiles and it irritates me like crazy. You can still be courteous without neccessarily smiling.Lol

bob-ij said...

I love to smile. And what's better?? I have dimples on both cheeks..but then people start to think it's fake :-( Truth is I don't smile unless i want to or (being the Diva I am) When the camera is about to click...lol

"If you're not using your smile, you're like a man with a million dollars in the bank and no checkbook" I like this. Smile peoples.
