Smile to bring love and happiness
JI UN SO, Baguio City

Whenever I go to convenience stores, I notice that some of the workers do not smile while serving customers. While they may be tired, I believe it should be a basic conduct for workers of any convenience store to always smile and be polite to customers. I am pretty sure that they know about that, but don’t do so because of some circumstances.

As I heard from somebody in the past, “A smile a day can change someone’s life.” When  I shared this message to my friends, they all thought it is nonsense since a single smile seemed so insignificant in the busy lives in this modern time.

However, I believe that smiling at someone could make one’s feelings better or positive.

Whenever I go to stores to buy snacks, drinks or school materials, I always say, “Thank you very much” and smile at the workers. I noticed that it was only when I smiled at them that they smiled back at me, and those smiles seemed to be out of pure happiness.

In almost two years that I have been staying in Baguio and smiling at them, I could see that store workers started greeting people with smiles on their faces and seemed livelier than before. We even started chatting casually about our lives and laughing together. I could sense that those I talk to now definitely have brighter outlook than they were before they received smiles.

People, who seem dull and not friendly are the people who  need to receive smiles the most. It is because they smiled at others many times in the past that they started losing their smiles. At those times, always remember to share a smile with them. It can significantly bring about changes in their lives.
