    things in this world. Today morning while heading to college I happen to cross a small kid, what attracted me or let's say totally had caught my attention was the INNOCENT smile coming from that kid. It was a total treat for me which made my day. Indeed smile is very powerful...

    The real thing I hate about coldsore besides

    the fact they are hideous is that I can't smile like I usually do without splitting my lip open. I miss smiling. I can't wait for this little buggar to disappear. =D

    It'S Addictive

    I often find myself smiling without a reason. Well, not entirely without a reason, it's just a generic one: I'm happy. And I know I am doing that when I see random strangers smiling at me. It took me a while to realize they were actually smiling back me. Because I was walking...

    Smiles certainly are impressionable.

    I get and give them almost everyday, typically with Staff members too old for negative impressions and young prejudice. And they even know my name, I have more status with those over the age of 35 than I do my easily amused peers. I almost wouldn't prefer it any other way and I...

    A while ago I started smiling at women

    who I would like to meet. Mostly women about my age , around 45 or 50 . Mostly when I shop for groceries. Women who seem lonely and who look at me. I ask advice about best buys. Most are friendly and we chat. I have ended up buying lunch for several, one asked me if I was busy...

    Me in reflection: Crap I smile to my device

    screen more than to real people. HALP HALP HALP. Me after 10 seconds: Oh. Okay. Life goes on. No one cares if you smile or not. It won't solve the issues you're having.

    this past weekend was super frustrating

    and no one could bring me out of my bad mood. I went and grabbed a coffee at a local coffee shop and the girl who served me took one glance, ran around the counter to give me a hug and smiled. that's all it took to get me back to smiling.
