Your Smile Can Heal

Your Smile Can Heal

I was walking in the Mall pondering a couple of discouraging encounters earlier in the day. A young boy suddenly was blocking my path and I slowed to step around him. He greeted me with a warm smile and a wave of his hand. I couldn’t help but smile back, and suddenly I realized my mood had lifted. I also reflected on the fact that the youth was a youngster with Downs Syndrome. He had healed me of my blue feelings—with a smile.

Every one carries a smile. Too many are unused, or too rarely used. Smiles are instant inoculations of loving-kindness. Every one needs them constantly. So each of us walks through life carrying this powerful medicine, and we have the opportunity to lift spirits and heal discouraged souls everywhere we go. THEREFORE----

1. Believe your smile can heal another person.
2. Decide to give it to people you meet—clerks, mechanics, anyone you pass.
3. Trust that they will feel brightened by your kind act.
4. Enjoy this new agenda for everyday living.
