Smile. It cures so many of the daily ills that seep into our hearts. The power behind a smile does wonders to a person. It relieves them of some suffering. It sparks light in the darkest of times. It awakens something inside a human being that breaks the pain. It gives strength. It gives hope. It gives warmth. It beautifies. Smiling graces us with a moment of peace. Oh how much gloom we allow to consume us when we pass on the opportunity to respond with a cheerful spirit and smile. So many times we await the emotion of happiness before we act with a smile, before we light another's light, but I say choose to smile in face of adversity and you will not only illuminate your soul, but you will illuminate the world.
