POWER OF SMILE

 

https://patrickrealstories.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/smile.png?w=710

A smile costs nothing, but gives much.
It takes a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he/she can get along without it, and none is so poor, but that he/she  can be made rich by it.

A smile creates happiness in the home, increases good will in business, and is the sign of friendship.

It brings rest to the discomfort, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone, until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile;
Give them one of yours, as you can make a sad person be happy

 

HAPPY SMILE  IN 2018!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    4. Thats really positive way, the way you see everything in life, I’m really inspired by that.
                      That is the enlightenment everyone should go after, its not about reaching soul by hardcore meditation.
                      If everyone were to think that way, I think world would be a very beautiful place to live than it is today.
