Smiles Are Contagious . . . So Go Ahead And Spread Them Around!

"When you see a person without a smile, give them one of yours."

ZIG ZIGLAR

 

 

With what we have been going through for the past 18 months, smiles seem to be a rare thing these days.  Especially when they are covered with masks and the world is in quarantine, not being able to see other humans.  

 

As restrictions are being lifted, more people are gathering, but not all are happy.  Because of their circumstances, they are wearing frowns instead of smiles.

 

A good way to get them smiling and temporarily forgetting about their problems, would be to smile. 

 

So, how do they get a smile?

 

By seeing someone else smile.  Believe it or not, it is contagious.

 

When I walk down the street, or hike, or just meet someone in general, I smile at them, sometimes saying "Hello".  In turn, they smile back.  I am sure it makes their day, feeling that someone cares enough to uplift their spirits.

 

So let's all smile!  This is one thing that we all want to spread around to make the world a better place.

I show folks photos of my grands and that usually gets a smile on their face.

Hi Brigita,  Thank you for the reminder of the importance of giving away as many smiles as possible.    That is always a goal of mine - smile at everyone and see how many I can collect in return.

Brigita,

We love smiling at people whenever we can.  It is fun to do that, and fun to have someone reciprocate the smile.  A
