giving smiles by ErinBird giving smiles by ErinBird
"If you see someone without a smile... give them one of yours !"

I try to smile at as many people as possible , because I know how nice it is when someone smiles at you . I can't describe the feeling but.. It almost fills you with warmth and hope that people are kind enough to show joy to others . It doesn't even have to be someone you know , smiling at strangers is also very fulfilling - showing happiness and kindness at someone you don't even know is something I really love , because it shows that even though I don't know your name or story , I'll still smile at you and hopefully make your day a littler better (:

It's getting darker A LOT quicker now and it kind of sucks because it didn't make this photo the best quality as it was too dark muuuuhhh . I hadn't done a photo in this kind of style for a while so I decided to whip out my note pad haha . *This isn't my quote .

Have a lovely day and don't forget to smile and show the world your joy

After note: please , if you have nothing nice to say , don't comment .. I am really tired and drained of reading mean comments from people who try to act smart/clever or are just trolls . I'm just trying to get a positive message across to brighten some people's day .

Enjoy , comment & fave ! ☮

I totally agree with what you wrote. Smillin always assures me that the person is friendly, positive, and that I'm not doing anything that bothers them. Yet I find it hard to smile sometimes when the person isn't smilling first. I just have to remember that they may not be smilling for the same reason I'm not. That being that they don't see you smilling.

Yes, I agree, a smile may be small, but it's just a reassuring gesture for people :aww: and yes I know what you mean, I guess there's always that fear that'll just look away and not return one back, but I find that when strangers smile at me, I end up thinking about them for the rest of the day and appreciate how kind they are to smile at me, despite the fact they don't know me.

I remember a moment when I was feeling pretty down and this complete stranger just gave me the biggest smile and thumbs up and walked on literally lit my day up that did!

It's a very nice one!

I don't fav often, but needed to add this one to my favourites, it's really an important one!
People in general would just be much happier if just a few more people would do this regularly. Every morning in the bus I only see tired, unhappy faces, of people who don't seem to give a damn about the other people in the bus and only think of their selves and are too busy with their own lives. Or at least, it easily looks like that... but it's so much that a smiling person immediately jumps out (in a positive way).
