“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
S M I L E !!
…for no other reason than you can.
Do you know that person? You know the one…always has a smile on her face. Or maybe it’s that you see his smile get bigger as you approach.
In that instant, there’s a warmth. A warmth of connection, a feeling of goodness, a touch of love.
It’s such a small thing really. We don’t have to say anything, We don’t have to exert a whole lot of energy. We just have to shift a few facial muscles! And in that shift, life IS more beautiful. For those who cross our paths, and for ourselves. All from one simple little thing…a smile!
Try it right now!! Smile (or smile a little bigger, if you already are smiling)! Let that touch of beauty that comes from this simple act be a part of your being…now…in this moment.
Smile…because you can!
