Smile Ambassador: What Smiling Has Got To Do For You
There is nothing like a smile beamed into your face like that of an innocent child whom you just met and the child falls in love with you.
I could remember the day I was simply downcast due to issues at place of work I couldn’t help understand. Not even my beloved friends on Facebook could take away the gloom cast all over me with their funny jokes and comments. When my comfortable office became haunting, I decided to step outside and get some fresh air. As soon as I had walked out into the street through the entrance gate of my place of livelihood, a child of four years left his mothers guiding hand and ran into me. I was both shocked and thrilled at the same time. Shocked because I wasn’t expecting such show of love from anyone more so, a child of four. Thrilled because such show of emotion was exactly what took away my gloom. When I looked up at the mother of my new-found friend, she beamed an encouraging smile my way and I gave the young man a befitting swing up into the air. He screamed hysterically in joy that I was forced to bring him down but he wouldn’t want me to stop. I obliged him even as his mother cautioned him to let ‘uncle’ have his ‘peace’
I couldn’t but smile and kept on smiling as I exchanged pleasantries with my new friend’s mother. She told me her son is not always like that. Hmmm! She maintained that I must have been a great friend of children to which I answered in the affirmative.
When I looked back at my new friends, the boy kept on waving at my departing figure and I waved back.
I learnt a lot from the child. It’s not a bad thing to smile even when you are down. No matter the situation in which you find yourself, always spare the world a smile.
