“If you see a friend without a smile; give him one of yours.”
“A smile you sent, will always return”

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.
Most people work around frowning and yet complain when wrinkles start appearing on their faces, it is important to be aware that in its resting state, the mouth often approaches a smiling expression, suggesting that minimal effort is required to pull the mouth into a full grin.
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. ~
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.
