THE INFECTIOUSNESS OF A SMILE

THE INFECTIOUSNESS OF A SMILE

An inspiring blog post from our guest blogger Meg For It ! Check out her entire blog at Megforit.com she is an amazing smile activist and energy ball!

When you take a look around, from culture to culture, there is one very unifying commonality….. a smile. We all smile in the same language. A smile is truly infectious. It is a nonverbal action that truly has piercing effects.

For many of us, myself included, we pass strangers on the street daily. Most avoid prolonged eye contact and often are looking down or far into the distance.

Next time you are walking past someone, try to provoke a change in their demeanor. Make eye contact and smile. IT’S AMAZING. The majority of the time you will see their eyes fill with life as they smile back and offer some type of salutation. Then it has the potential to spread like a virus.The stranger then feels inspired to share that smile with another and that person shares it too. It becomes a 6 degrees of separation/pay it forward type of situation. The reason most strangers keep to themselves and avoid eye contact is due to a fear of rejection.

We are so protective of our personal space and so scared of another’s judgement that we avoid contact at all costs. (Self-checkout line please.) This perpetuates a lonely cycle that needs to be broken. Break the cycle.

Whatever we are putting out into the world is spreading. So what are you spreading? Or what do you see being spread? Is it racism, disdain for another person’s political view, a different religion, or fear? You need to put out what the world needs. We need more love and peace. Be the one force of love and peace in your family, in your job, in your school, in your community. It will spread like a beautiful disease.

Recently we have seen the slogan “Make America Great Again”. What would that look like? Personally, I think it would look like everyone having peace with our differences, celebrating the success of others, and thinking less selfish thoughts. It makes me stop and think, “Where do we start?” I would venture to say it’s a smile. Let’s “Make America Friendly Again” one smile at a time.
