A lot of times we say we want to help people but we don't know how, or don't have time. At times, ones ability to help others can feel out of reach.
But there is something you can give and give and give. You won't get burnt out or worked up. Rather you'll feel great! The thing I'm talking about here is... Your... SMILE!
Like it says on the flyer above (that I saw on a school bulletin board) “most smiles are started by another smile.” When you walk around with a smile on. When you smile at the cashier, the person you order your coffee from, your family, your friends, you instantaneously brighten their day. Even if it's just for a moment. Even if they have a lot going on. For the moment that you smile there is an exchange more powerful than any words.
When you think about what you can do to make the world a better place and help those who need it, think about starting with your smile.
Turn the corners of your mouth up towards your ears and give your smiles to as many people as you can.
