Make People Smile

One of the greatest joys in life is the pleasure you can receive from making someone smile.

Not only is making someone smile free or cheap, doing so helps you out. Yes, that’s right. Getting people to smile can improve your mood!

So, why don’t we try to make others smile more often? There’s plenty of reasons:

We’re in a bad mood ourselves

Our day has been hectic and we’re in a rush

Someone was just rude to you

You can’t figure out a way to make someone smile

Yeah, it’s true. Our days aren’t always pleasant. We don’t always carry a happy face with us. People can be jerks. And sometimes we just don’t know of a way to make someone smile.

But this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. Rather, I think these reasons make it all the more reasonable to go out of our way to make someone’s day and give them a reason to smile.

What do you think? Is it worth it?
