Is that true? Maybe? Sometimes?
Do you remember the cartoon, Underdog?
Picture the smiling Simon Bar Sinister…
Does that make you smile? Probably so, since it’s just a silly cartoon.
How about in the movie, The Silence of the Lambs?
Hannibal Lecter is leaning over a body. His back is turned towards you hiding his evil deed. He slowly turns around holding a dripping knife in one hand and the face he just carved off his victim in the other. He licks the blood from his lips and smiles….
That definitely does not bring a reciprocal smile.
Now look at these pictures of smiles?
What is the point of all this?
A smile is your gift to others. How it is given and how it is received is up to you. A friendly grin may turn a person’s day from terrible to tolerable. Remember that and give a big ole toothy grin.
