If we try to reminisce back the good things about our best friends, the most conspicuous ones would be their charismatic smiles. Though they may have other qualitative characteristics, their smile stands out like a beacon of light in the horizon. A smile changes the countenance of a person dramatically. It erodes the negativities and makes the person more likable and approachable. When we smile we are sending a powerful signal to the outside world that "we are happy and we want others to be happy too". Such positive notions can help us in filling up the canvass of our lives with streaks of brilliant colors.

The much touted book "Secrets" by Rhonda Byrne speaks about the greatest law that encapsulates human beings emotion, which is the "Law of Attraction". The book vouches that the quality of feelings/ thoughts that we air into this world will help us in attracting like minded people. Our face is the mirror which primarily reflects our feelings to the outside world. And our feelings and emotions are best portrayed when we flash that innocuous smile.

It takes 43 muscles to frown, but only 17 to smile. If at the end of the day we take stock of our rendezvous with our feelings / emotions, we will be surprised to find that we are shrouded with more of negative emotions than of positive ones. While the average 4 year old smiles and laughs more than 500 times a day, the average adult is likely to smile/ laugh only 15 times a day. As we grew up, we have lost our ebullience and effervescence and our ability to see the world around us as a post card peppered with beautiful and enigmatic things. We need to consciously revitalize the habit of smiling and seeing the world in wonderment and awe as it will help in putting far more living into our lives.

The painting "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo Da Vinci is supposed to be the greatest piece of art ever to be made in this whole world. Why? Because Da Vinci was able to capture the innocence of a smile so wonderfully well on a piece of canvas. "The Laughing Buddha" is the most sought after good luck charm by people all over the world. Why? Because , the statue which is an embodiment of prosperity and happiness, is supposed to usher in the obscured happiness in our lives. People identify more with things that brings happiness to them. We could be that vital ingredient in their lives if we can enrapture them with our perpetual smiles.

Remember life is like a mirror. We get the best results when we smile at it. So let us begin everyday of our lives with a beautiful smile.
