    it sure can :) I love randomly smiling at

    grumpy looking peeps when I'm out and about..if they still look unhappy, I poke my tongue out or pull a weird face or do a little jig..then smile again.. 9/10 times you get a smile even if it's only faint.. :)

    Be Happy...... Enjoy every moment of your life.

    Life is too short to waste on grudges. Laugh when you can, apologies when you should, and let go of what you can't change.

    There is a girl in the library I use

    who has the most wonderful smile. I sometimes go in there and ask for something just so she will smile for me. It makes me feel great all day. She wears a ring, probably has a boyfriend but that's fine by me. I don't want to chat her up or date her, just to see that smile.

    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 was brought up to always give a smile to

    everyone even to strangers. One day I was walking and I saw a stranger coming towards me and I did my usual curtsy with a smile and the man responded with the same gesture ! Do you know who that was? He is Pope Francis! Yes he says hello even to the littlest girl on earth...

    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 like smiling at people.

    I like smiling in general, but more so when it's at strangers. I live in a place where most people ignore others. I try not to be like that. I don't want to be like that. That's why I smile at strangers. In that moment between only the two of you, it feels like I'm sharing a...

    Smiling for someone is sweet.

    But making others smile is the best feeling. Remember the quote, a smile is a curve that sets everything straight. So, don't forget to smile.

    that the smallest gestures of kindness, happiness, or good-natured fun make a world of difference within daily human interaction.

    8 years ago, I walked into 7-11 on a warm

    summer morning holding my toddler's hand. As I pulled the door open, I noticed your head turn - your skin looked beautiful against your white Oxford shirt and blue tie. Our eyes met and your smile quickly broadened. Thank you for leaving me with that. That's how you make...

    I've seen it happen. I love smiling

    If you don't think this,

    you are dumb. Picture the scene: if somebody is feeling down. They keep feeling sad for whatever reason. Nothing will change that. Then, they walk into a store with me as the cashier. I smile and they may or may not smile back. BUT the fact you did will put something happy in...

    as simple as smiling at someone can completely change their day. I have seen people who look sad and depressed and I find that if I smile at them a lot of times they will smile back. If I smile at someone who is having a rough day a lot of times they will tell me later that my...

    I add a smile to everything I wear

    and that has worked great for me. Smiling is definitely one of the best beauty remedies. If you have a good sense of humor and a good approach to life, that’s beautiful. Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Wear...

    and changed my day moment. It had been a really bad day at school, I'd failed another math test yet again, failed to get into the choir I wanted, and left three important papers at home. Not only that but more the half my friends had left me for someone who I can call no more...

    This is so unbelievably true!

    Smiling is contagious, and I believe sometimes we get so caught up in our busy world that we forget such simple gestures could brighten someone's day. I know it does mine.

    All it takes is to smile,

    it truly changes so much. We have enough sour pusses in the world. Like my daughter said dont be a debbie downer. kissy wasnt talkin to me cause Im mostly cheerful and bubbly. That was one of Kissys sayings. Cheerfulness is contagious so spread those smiles people.
