    I work for a large company in a huge department

    (400-500 people in just my half of the wing on 1 floor). I always try to smile and say hello to everyone I see. This past week a few people mentioned to me how I'm always so friendly and how my good mood really lifts everyone's spirit. The main reason I try to be do upbeat is...

    You never know what the person you pass on the

    street is dealing with or how badly they may be hurting. I try to smile and say hello to everyone I see. Just that little bit of positive might be what they need!

    If u have read me before it will not be a

    but I struggle in my mind a lot. I have thoughts that don't make sence to others. I automatically think people think negatively about me. I try to fight that but a smile changes my day!!!! And when I smile at others it may change their day and it also keeps me in a positive...

    Smiling, to me, is like a silent connection

    between two strangers. In that moment, just you and that person exist. And you wonder if that person is thinking the same thing. You don't have an urge to talk to the stranger, or maybe you do, but for that moment you believe in the wonders of humanity and the beauty of moving...

    I may not have the perfect smile,

    but I do believe a smile and the right attitude can surely change people's days. Because when strangers smile and greet me, whether it be holding open the door or waiting in line at the mall, it's the little things that can instantly change my day! So as I pass by some strangers...

    I think a smile in any situation can make you

    feel better. Being depressed, just plain sad, or really angry can be better with a smile. Not only that but it increases the positive hormones in the body making you healthier. So not only does it make you feel better, look better, but its good for you!

    I believe this wholeheartedly.

    The other day I was driving down the street and I saw an old man shoveling. He was watching me drive down the street so I figured "let me wave and smile. It's a beautiful morning!" Lol. And I did. He put his shovel down and waved and gave a big smile 😁 I'm not sure if I made...

    I have been a victim of this.

    .. I was having such a ****** day at work and one of the doctors that never smiles bc he is having a rough time in his life... Smiled at the joke I was telling. I was so taken a back... I just smiled... Really made my day to know that I could bring him a little happiness.

    A Smile Can Change More Than A Day.

    A few months ago I was going to buy lunch in school. We have a cafeteria but they always only sell bread and sandwitches, which I dont like, so I always go to the shop close buy for a yoghurt. I remember standing in line to pay when I saw a friend of mine. Not really a friend I...

    I believe in smiles and small talk.

    Be nice to people. For those that aren't nice to you - make sure to give them an extra big smile! And if you see someone struggling - help them. Pick up the soup can that fell in the aisle at the grocery store. The man with crutches will appreciate it. For the stressed mom with...

    I teach middle school.

    I come on contact with over 200 young people every day. I love to stand at my classroom door and greet each kid with a smile every day. I remind myself that it may be the only smile they see that day. It gives me joy to see them smile back.

    I know it does mine! I can be walking minding

    my own business and catch the eye of an attractive woman, get a smile, smile back and my day is made. So when I see an opportunity to smile at some unsuspecting (of age) woman I take it every time. If I receive a smile back I would only hope I made her day!
