Spread Happiness By Sharing A Smile
This Week's Simple Tip
Ever notice how contagious smiling can be? When you see someone smiling, your natural response is to smile back. Even without saying a word, you somehow understand what someone is trying to convey to you just by smiling. Smiling is a universal language … a smile is a curve that sets everything else straight :) The beautiful thing about smiles is that they are a two-way gift … people on both ends of a smile exchange feel good. The act of smiling activates neural messaging that makes your brain feel good, and you pass that along to someone else for a feel-good chain effect. Mother Teresa once said that “every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”
This Week's Focus
This week, make it a point to share some smiles each day. It doesn’t matter if it’s to someone you know or to a stranger. I personally love to go to the grocery store and see how many smiles I can share. I leave feeling great, and I know that I’ve touched many other hearts.

2. Have you ever been on the receiving end of a random act of kindness to experience the pure joy it brings? I recently found this painted rock on the ground by my mailbox. It brought such joy that I joined the Facebook group called "Rockin' Smiles" and will do my part to paint some rocks and spread joy to others.
