Be Yourself.

I worked at a pharmacy years ago and everyday a guy came by to buy the newspaper. It was winter and he wore a wool hat and never ever smiled. He was cute although much older than I was at the time. I hated to see him so sad every morning. So… one morning I gathered my courage and spoke out. “I’m sure you’d look good with a smile.” Guess what? He had a wonderful smile on his face and he was even cuter. As an afterthought, would my boss fire me? No he didn’t, and the same guy always had a smile on his face when he walked into the pharmacy after that episode. It takes so little effort to smile and make people feel better. Stop frowning. You’ll get more wrinkles! Did you know that?
