What is it about a smile that can make the world around us seem more beautiful than it is? That can make violins play in the heart and colors explode in the mind? That can put you in a happy mood for no reason at all and make you want to sing and dance like they do it Bollywood?
It lights up your life when it is on someone else’s face and lights up your heart when it is on your own. And when someone smiles at you, you can’t help but smile back and perhaps that’s why it’s called the universal language. It is the beginning of a friendship, and the symbol of pleasantry, of humor, of amicability. It is what we all look for in other people, and what gives away a lot more about us than we would think.
It is such a simple gesture, such an automatic response to so many situations, but it can hold such power sometimes, the power to shift the axis of our personal universes and send life careering in a whole different direction altogether.
What is it about a smile that can be so magical? :P
