Happiness and Smiling

Think for a moment, if you will, on the people you may see walking down a crowded city street. As you pass by each person, imagine the different uses of body language, how people walk, talk, and most importantly, notice the people who are smiling. Now, consider even further – which of the people that you pass, do you think, are happy? The answer, in the most simplistic terms, seems clear – the happy people are smiling, because being happy makes people smile. This may very well be true, but for me, I also see the reverse. Smiling makes people happy. In fact, I would say that the very pursuit of happiness begins with a smile.
