I read somewhere that when a man committed suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, afterwards people checked out his apartment and found a note which said that if someone smiled at him on his way to the bridge, he would not kill himself. I don’t know if this is urban legend, but a smile has a power which is often overlooked. It shines love to the world and connects us with our fellow human being on Planet Earth.
A smile costs nothing.
It lifts your heart.
It is a good way to use your facial muscles.
It opens your heart to others.
It brings music to the soul of others.
A smile can make a difference in someone’s life.
A smile can save someone’s life if they’re down and out.
It is free.
It is a sharing of love for our fellow human beings.
What’s not to love about a smile?
