“Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.” ~ P.S. I Love You
Human expressions are beautiful. Scientifically based on the 6 basic expressions of happiness, surprise, anger, sadness, fear, and disgust, they can be further combined into 20 sentiments – the 6 basic expressions, happily surprised, happily disgusted, sadly fearful, sadly angry, etc etc etc……
Well, i did type in the full list, but all 20 of them is too much to write on the blog. I couldn’t go through it myself. So, in all probability, no one else will. but you get an idea of the possible combos… any ideas on the balance 10 ? It can be a nice mind exercise! OR you can simply google it (as did i)..
Even if i am in any of these 6 basic expressions or 14 of the balance sentiments, i am trying, really hard to mask these expressions and show only one on my face. A smile…
Yes, there may be different kinds of smiles – happy smile, “i know” smile, loving smile, flirty smile, “i told you so” smile, sad smile, “what rubbish are you talking” smile, “i agree with you” smile, ” you look great” smile.., “Hey there stranger” smile (No, i didn’t google these… ).
When you smile, only those who are close to you will understand the sentiment behind it.. for everyone else, it may just compel them to smile back….
Why do I want to strive for it?
Well, stand in front of the mirror and see yourself. Now curve up those corners of your mouth and give your best smile – and look at yourself.
Imagine, seeing this beauty all around you. The world as is today needs us to do a lot of things to make it a better place. i think this one thing could be the easiest one we can contribute towards making it one.
