The smile that you send out returns to you. (Indian Wisdom.)





On a day as grey as grey can be,

When melancholy fills up your heart,

Be smart, depart from your grief and start

Smiling sweetly and wholeheartedly.


You will find your mind unbind from grief,

While the smile sits sweetly on your face.

Gracefully it will fly and embrace

All others, giving the same relief.


For every smile you care to send out

Will put a smile on another face

Dozens of smiles will return to you


Bringing fresh delight; and hope will sprout

As around you light will fill the space

And the entire world will smile with you.

"Let a smile be your umbrella." I agree. We don't need parachutes (that other self-help idea.) We did active, proactive joy. It works. Thanks, Peter.
