A warm smile …

A warm smile is

the universal language of kindness.

~ William Arthur Ward



A warm smile is the universal language of kindness … isn’t that the truth! How fabulous do you feel when you receive a smile from someone? A smile is a gift, it can brighten your mood, it can disarm you if you allow it and it can bring a smile to your pretty face as well. A smile lifts your face; it makes you look more youthful and adds shine to your persona. It’s just as easy to smile as it is to frown, it’s a choice much like seeing a glass as half full … there are always two sides to a situation, sometimes more. When we choose to look at the world with a bright shining smile, the world smiles back at you.


Smiles and laughter are infectious — they make us feel good, and they are hard to ignore! Laughing and smiling is good for our soul. Genuine laughter increases breathing while lowering blood pressure and heart rate. We mimic the facial expressions of others and reciprocate, and it can be contagious in social situations. Smiling helps bond people together. Smiling has physiological consequences which help us feel better and want to grin more. Smiling self-medicates and heals, it’s good medicine. Smiling has obvious, quick and immediate rewards to those who practice smiling: they feel better, others respond more positively to them, and they succeed in their endeavors swiftly and often … therefore, they feel better about themselves and their efforts and smile more naturally and frequently.
