If I could earn a living doing what I love the most, I would love to pay it forward and smile at everyone I pass by in my day. Smiling isn’t hard to do, it doesn’t cost anything and it makes you look good. Smiling isn’t something that can actually change the world, but what it can do is possibly make someone’s day. Someone who is having a bad day could have their day changed by you smiling at them. When their day is changed, they could also change someone else’s. It isn’t about giving someone something tangible to change the world; you can give them something intangible; something like a smile. Every day I make it a challenge to just smile at someone while passing by them. It might not make the person I smiled at smile but if I keep doing it, eventually someone will smile back. If they don’t smile at someone, they will keep getting smiled at by others because maybe someone else is smiling to pay it forward.
