The Value of a Smile

Did you know even smiling can be go-give? :) Even if you feel you have nothing to give to others, everyone can give a smile. This is from Life of Hope.com.

The Value of a Smile by Francie Baltazar-Schwartz

“The value of a smile is priceless, yet it is the cheapest, easiest, most rewarding and most sincere gift to anyone that crosses your path. A smile makes a person’s day, anybody’s day even a stranger’s day. A smile is infectious. Start infecting people with your smile today.

A smile is nature’s best antidote for discouragement. It brings rest to the weary, sunshine to those who are sad, and hope to those who are hopeless and defeated.

A smile is so valuable that it can’t be bought, begged, borrowed, or taken away against your will. You have to be willing to give a smile away before it can do anyone else any good.

So if someone is too tired or grumpy to flash you a smile, let him have one of yours anyway. Nobody needs a smile as much as the person who has none to give.”

    Not only does smiling do others good, but its good for you too! According to some theories smiling actually makes you FEEL happier. Try feeling angry while you’re smiling…you’ll see what I mean.
