    A smile is a wonderful thing.

    A person stopped me today in Starbucks and said they just wanted to thank me. For what I asked somewhat surprised. Well they replied I see you here often and you always seem to have a smile on your face, you just don't know how much it has brightened my days. As they left I...

    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!

    Why wonder why, "What IF" you say Hi to a

    stranger today? What would you have to lose? Not a thing. I know when I am out on the lake in the boat, everyone waves at the one passing by. When I lived in the sticks of Texas, and maybe that is the keyword, STICKS, but the driver would always raise a hand when you passed...

    Today, I met this cheerful guy named Jeff.

    Jeff is homeless. After we talked for a bit about "this and that", I walked away. I heard him say "hey Will!". I turned around to see him smiling with one front tooth. He yelled, "Change the a World Will!" I don't know why but, at that moment I felt powerful and inspired.

    Well, it works when someone smiles at me -

    especially a pretty lady - that really makes my day! So whenever the occasion arises, I'll smile at someone and usually I'll always get one in return. Both our days will be better from then on.

    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...

    Nowadays people swear more

    than smile. There is nothing to lose when you smile. I feel better when a stranger smiles at me and way better when I smile at them. Lets spread love.

    It Can Change Your Day As Well

    Smiling at people will really make your day better by lifting your mood as well as the ones you smile at. It doesn't cost anything and helps counter all the negativity in the world.

    If you're smiling most of the time.

    And you continue smiling at people. Those people will smile back. Then they'll pass on their smile on to someone else, and that someone else will pass it onto another. And then we'll have a world full of smiling people! :)

    When I go to a checkout at Mcdonalds,

    Wal Mart or wherever, I make an attempt to be especially nice. They deal with rude people all the time, being nice, kind and calling people by name is the least we can don. And It can make a difference in peoples day.

    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...

    It's true, I've experienced it first hand.

    I use public transportation often, and I'm usually used to otherwise grumpy drivers. Until one day, in a morning route, the bus driver was super cheerful, smiling, said good morning to me. And that literally shaped my entire day to the better, to the extent that I now want to...

    I think smiling at someone makes them feel

    special. Too many people in this world feel lonely, unloved and depressed. It doesn't take any time or effort to smile at someone. I think a smile says "You matter, you are important and worth smiling at". It could really brighten someone's day! If I feel grumpy myself, smiling...

    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.

    worst day of their life and all they want to see is you! Smiling can make a very big difference believe it or not. I'm always happy and smiling, always trying to make other people feel top of the world! If a smile could change their day, why not do it?

    It can! Especially when I receive a spontaneous

    smile from a female stranger. I have no "lesbian" or "bi" radar whatsoever, so I can't tell why they're smiling... It gets me to thinking about why they did and takes my thoughts off of the issues I'm facing. 😀 So smile at some stranger today!

    section of Craig's list: "There is nothing more appealing than a woman whose wandering mind and modest beauty betray her to those of us who can see." I think it's profound.
