Just one smile

Just one smile to stop 1000 tears

It takes just one smile to stop 1000 tears is such a profound statement

How often do we realize that any act of yours could hurt someone? We may have not planned to hurt the person, but the message may be misconstrued and the person may feel distressed. In this post, I’m going to talk about such people who have this freakish talent of hurting people. I call it a talent just because in some way or the other I find myself associated with this thing. When you speak something, we often fail to take note of the impact it creates on an individual. Don’t just let your tongue cut your throat. Just think before we speak.

A simple smile. That’s the start of opening your heart and being compassionate to others.

I can relate myself to this category of people. I have hurt a few of my best people which includes my parents, my sibling, my friends, cousins, etc. It is only after that I regret hurting a wonderful person. I have no doubts that God has sent me his best people to be my friends. It is these people who have supported me and encouraged me for things that I couldn’t do. I remember how I spoke against my parents for irritating me early morning. They both were making sense, it is just that I took it the wrong way.

I was already pissed of due to this recession saga and it was 7 am early morning. The same day I don’t know why, but I was too stupid. I badly hurt someone who knew me so well. It was one of my best friends. I mean the best of my friend. At times, I plan to make decisions hastily. Deleting my blog was a long time goal ….he-he it is not going to be an achievement though.

Just one smile

It is this person who protested against this decision and explained to me the importance of my blog and my small little reader’s group. My blog would have died long ago in mid-2008 if it wasn’t this person. It was this person’s advice and words or few which have made me smile at a time. Thanks a lot best friend, you don’t cease to make me smile.

When a human steps into this world, he is all alone and gradually he learns about his people. We as a tiny being, look around and get close to a set of people whom we identify as our own. It’s these people with whom we share a life long bond of togetherness. It is from them whom we learn wise and great things. It is from the family that we learn the best lessons of our life and most families teach their children to love each other and not hurt others.

If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like a flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace

It is quite true that its just one smile that could stop people’s tears. All that I want from you is just one smile. I know you could very well fake smile and I was very well aware of it. I can easily find out the difference between original and fake smiles. I know I am a rude and stupid person on Earth. And the same thing continues every time. Just one smile is very alluring.

Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love

Mother Teresa

Just remember that whenever you wake up every day, look at the mirror and just one smile is enough to brighten your day. This positive approach will not only make your day the best day but also reflect.
