I always ask people to smile… In the beginning! they ask why, then they start feeling shy! then they keep smiling until laugh for more than a minute, after that they stop for a little bit!.
These few seconds I gave can change life mode for them during the whole day! or maybe for a long time. In return they give me one minute of real feeling and happiness, do you know why?
It’s the real emotion, real happiness inside everybody.
That’s how I make people smile…
