Smile at strangers

β€œSmile at strangers and you just might change a life.” – Steve Maraboli

You never know, you can make someone’s day 😊 It happened to me so many times that a stranger’s smile made my day 😊 I’m glad if I can do the same 😊

  1. nice advice , i used to do this many times it has a good reflection on the soul . also treat nicely to other people cause people need this every do to feel appreciated when a little people do this so when you do both smile and treat good i think you’ll find someone someday who will do the same with you

  2. How is it that the simple, low-cost things in life seem to matter most? I wish more people knew this. Thank you for the uplifting post.

  3. I often add a “hello” type greeting – that either gets one back or at least a smile – I regularly do it (hello) on buses, I often think that drivers get such a hard time, and it’s nice to acknowledge that I hope they will safely drive me somewhere. And then I’m known to have quite random chats with people (strangers) and I have learnt some extraordinary things about their day or their lives… – I see I didn’t mention the title, but that had been a recent job….and then it post goes onto another bus connection about bowling greens – I love having these chats, as often there is so much unsaid …

  4. I think a lot of people do smile at strangers. Dog walkers smile at each other, if you’re out with a toddler or puppy lots of people smile. On the cliff top people smile as they pass each other; either they are in holiday mood or they live at the seaside – aren’t we lucky to live here. Sunshine brings out a cheerful countenance. But more important is to engage in eye contact with the elderly, the Big Issue seller, the harrased parent when the day is gloomy, the traffic busy.

  5. Hi Popsiclesociety,
    There is no better way to live life than to make a lasting impression on others. And one of the best ways is to smile at others including strangers. In fact, I have made many exciting relationships with a simple smile. It is good that you write about it.
