It’s really amazing every time I see the precious and priceless smile of a child. I believe the smile of a child brings joy to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature’s best antidote for trouble.
Lionel Messi once said: “There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing a happy and smiling child. I always help in any way I can, even if it’s just by signing an autograph. A child’s smile is worth more than all the money in the world. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business, and is the countersign of friendship.”
A child’s smile costs nothing but gives much, and it enriches those who receive it. It takes a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
I now know that there is nothing more joyful than the precious and priceless smile of a child. If you often spend time with a kid, you’ll also be familiar with that feeling of light warmth that fills your cheeks when a child, whatever the age, smiles at you.
You too could start smiling more. Your hearts would be free, happy, and child-like, just like the children that we see smiling and laughing at the playground.
It just gives a sense of pride, as if you had a perfect day. We often identify making a child happy by buying him/her something new or letting him/her win a game. But in the long run, are those the things that can make children smile from within? The answer is NO because the smile of a child is priceless.
Children love to play in the rain or in the snow and they always smile doing that. They rejoice in the most obscured situation and circumstance life could throw at them. Children act like they are the source of light. They rejoice even when the sky is falling.
You know what? Now, if you want to make children smile, learn to love Imperfection and Improvisation.
Try to observe children and how they play, and you will learn the greatest life lesson from them.
