"Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day."

Earlier this morning when I woke up, I'm not feeling well. My head and back is aching and it made me so irritable. Maybe because of the stress from work. Well, I've been working like a dog. But when I was on my way going to work, wearing a grumpy face..., I met a lady who gave me a beautiful warm smile, her eyes looks like encouraging me to be positive. And I suddenly remember I haven't smile since I woke up. There is something in that smile that made me feel great. My grumpiness disappeared and yeah, my day turned out great. It feels like my mind was refresh with just one smile...

From now on, I'm ready to face the day with a good smile!
