I remember when I was 13, I thought to myself, I want to be the first to smile at every person I happen to meet in the day. It's been a long time since then, and although I've often failed to be kind to others even through as simple a thing as a genuine smile - I look back and realize that this little point of choosing to be intentional about my expression makes a huge difference in one's attitude towards life.
If you only do things cause you feel like it or you want something from others, you'll never learn to give something of yourself so others can smile. And if we don't know what it means to make others smile, we live a tragic existence indeed!
