How’s Your Smile?

Since I was a child I’ve been told there is a healing power in a smile. As with a lot of gifts, the giver can sometimes not even notice the power of the gifting that flows through them.

Your smile is a powerful tool. Sometimes it’s the only one you have that will open doors.

When it comes to drawing people into something new – a new idea, a new practice, a new value – we will face at least some resistance from the majority of the crowd.

Nudge With a Smile

For the most part, it’s not that they are recalcitrant to the point that they won’t budge an inch. People sometimes want to be convinced. It’s just that they need a nudge.

There is a small percentage of people who won’t change no matter what. Leave them behind until they come around – that will be usually on their own in their own timing.

Smile today and defuse away.

  1. This is a great thought into welcoming people in, just with your smile. A merry heart does good like a medicine, so we benefit from smiling also. What we Do and How we do it matters, you never know who is watching. So always wear a smile.
