It is amazing what a warm and generous smile can do for those around you. I have found that as I meet people along the way, just smiling at them creates a positive curve in their facial expression. A warm and inviting smile brings out the warmth of one’s heart, similar to that of the sunshine drawing us to its light.
There is a natural gravitational pull that draws our hearts to those who smile. It is the reflection of a caring person that allows our hearts to open in return. In some cases it is a pleasantry of saying hello to someone you pass on the street. In the case of family and friends, it provides the open door for a positive and welcoming form of communication, breaking down barriers, and providing opportunities to discuss.
I have found that in most instances, a pleasant smile returns itself in the reflection of the recipients face. Of course, there are instances where someone might be dealing with a difficult situation, so the reflection cannot rebound. Yet, most often, the heart of a smile awakens the life within everyone you meet, and those that you love and care for.
A smile allows boundaries to melt while warming the hearts of others. Sometimes the act is difficult, depending on our life situations. Yet, when we are most accepting of life and the situations we encounter, our attitude will present itself through our smile, completing our facial attire.
May your smile you share today be a blessing of bounty.
