Saw a documentary tonight about the people who live in Tanzania. One of the men interviewed was asked why his people were always smiling in spite of whatever happened. The man told him that when you smiled you offered hope. When you smiled, you welcomed friend and stranger alike. When you smiled, you made others feel better even when they were having sad times. When you smiled, you made yourself feel better and had more confidence. The BBC reporter was impressed and for the rest of the documentary, you saw him smiling almost all the time. Give it a try--it works.
