I have discovered something…the power of a smile.

Smiling in the face of war

Smiling in the face of war

Seriously, just flash it at people and pretend that it will melt their hearts into soft, pliable putty and it WILL! Even the meanest, strictest goes-out-of-her-way-to-catch-you teacher at my school is starting to succumb. But then maybe that has to do with the fact I play music to her mother at a retirement home once a week…(music is also related to taming the savage beast, as the old adage goes)

It’s like a ticket into a persons heart…a key to the things that they keep locked up inside.

I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.

Do not repay evil with evil…rather conquer evil by doing good…Nothing niggles evil more than a smile in the face of their slander

So go ahead…stretch that thing across your cheekbones and stun the world with your brilliance.

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.  ~Phyllis Diller

*Warning* There is such a thing as smiling too much…as can be seen in Olympic Synchronized Swimmers. Smiling too much makes you come across as insincere and annoying. A good rule of thumb may be to smile when you mean it – when you see someone and look them in the eye, when you see something that triggers the warmth of happiness in your brain, don’t be afraid to translate that into a grin.

*Note to girls with braces* Dont let those wire spiders get in the way of you and the world by hiding thwem. I had braces for two years, and my boyfriend informs me that guys actually have a thing for braces  he and his mates in years 8 and 9 would get excited over them. So flaunt em baby!
