  1. You know, what I’ve found is that just getting a warm smile from a stranger can brighten my day immensely. I always try and smile at people who are looking particularly downtrodden. 🙂

    • You are so right! A warm smile at the right time can make one’s day. If you smile and someone smiles back – this can make your day as well. Genuine smiles should be on everyone’s schedule. 🙂

      • Ah, wouldn’t that be lovely? “To do today: Math homework, check. Return library books, check. Smile at a stranger or return their smile to you – check.” 😉

      • The world would be a more peaceful place. Who knows: if we continue to smile at the world around us, there might be some who start to follow our exemplary behaviour… 😉
