'Speculate. Strive. Smile.' - Why did I decide to call my blog this?
Today we will consider why smiling is super important.
The Dalai Lama said “A simple smile. That’s the start of opening your heart and being compassionate to others."
He points out that a smile is simple, it takes no effort yet it means so much more than you think. It a symbolically opening of your heart that links you to the person you are smiling at. I think the compassion spreads through you, but also to the other person.
Smiling makes you feel good, but it can also change someone else's day entirely. So smile, transform your day but also turn someone else's from bad to good! As they say, use your smile to change the world; don’t let the world change your smile.
So go out and smile at as many people as possible, spread happiness!
