happy faceI came across the poem ‘Smiling Is Infectious’ in a coffee shop in Yorkshire, England. And just had to include it in a post.

It was written on a chalk board on the wall and was put there by one of the waitresses who just loved the idea of adding different quotes and poems to the board on a regular basis just to lift the spirits of the customers. I took a photograph for my collection as it lifted my day.

My research says that the author is unknown although many people have claimed ownership, so to whoever penned it – thank you!

But the main reason I have added it to the site is because I believe that smiling is just another habit that each and every one of us could adopt on a daily basis if we wanted to. So go on let’s start an epidemic…

Smiling Is Infectious
Author Unknown

Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized
I’d passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,
then I realized its worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don’t leave it undetected.
Let’s start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!
