a smile, a gentle touch, a genuine word of praise, a listening ear, a warm hug, saying sorry when you are wrong, an act of forgiving and caring can make your life bright and beautiful?

Of course. There is no doubt about this.This does make life beautiful . A smile is the best adornment a person can wear.And all the others that you have mentioned are much more worthy than the costliest of gifts one can give me.I would treasure these above anything else.

hi, Kala a smile costs you nothing but can do wonders, but we often avoid smiling, may be ego comes in and stops the smile. yes, i will definitely treasure them more than the materialistic wealth.

hello dear anna, Those were simple acts and gesture but means a lot. It is not easy to say sorry,for it is our pride that keep us from holding those words. But,once we say it,it give us relief and we can proudly say,you have done one of the hardest yet,easiest act to do. A warm embrace with any word is worth than "i love you". A gentle touch means a lot of meaning,words unspoken,yet,it gives comfort and feeling of security. I am one of those kind,as what they call,sentimental fool. I easily moved my simple gesture and simple acts of showing love and care. I can easily forgive a person without a word,just smiling at me and saying "hello" means sorry to me. Have a great Monday dear anna

Hi vijayanths, Yes I think these acts can help make life beautiful but only if they come naturally. If I didn't want to do it but started because I felt it would help me, I don't thing I'd get much out of it. Attitude is everything. Blessings.

hi vijay, I definitely agree with what you have shared with us. It makes life worth living in terms of existence. Being affectionate and caring for others makes a person feel treasured even in little ways of acts, the thought a person can freely express his thoughts in his own way is rewarding. The act to share love for others will make himself improve more as a person and able realize many things about life because of real life experiences in which we learn from it..That will serve as an inspirational tool in helping and making others lives brighter and beautiful. An act though simple for others, may seem big of others who was touched by his life. Very priceless and the true essence being a naturally human at all.. Happy mylotting..

These behavioral traits do create lots of positive impact in every situations.Most of us like to receive words of best compliments and wishes on special occasions. It is always important to share with others whatever the best possible we possess. In the matter of inter personal relationship,we need to be honest,natural and cooperative. Thanks.

Absolutely!!! I always try to remember and remind people that smiles are contagious and at time one simple smile can make and maybe even change someones day. I was told a story when I was a young girl about a person that was having a terrible day and was thinking about ending their life and as they were walking down the street someone flashed them as smile and asked how they were and that changed their whole day and saved them from taking their own life....now of course there was more to that story but that is the bases of it and I always try to remember that story because no matter how hard you are having it someone else is or can be having it even harder and if you can just take that time to flash a simple smile it can possibly save someones life....

Sure does. When a person smiles chances are you smile back; likewise when you have somebody to lean on or a shoulder to cry on, you feel secured and love. In a scientific theory, when one forgives, her/his heart feel light and as if you're taking those thorns that pierced your body. There's lightness of feeling as if you were exorcised.

In my opinion it is those small acts of kindness that remind us how beautiful life is and what it is all about. Like a lot of people I’ve experienced very sad times in my life and I found that as I was grieving for a lost friend or relationship a kind smile even from a stranger changed the experience for me even if only briefly. A smile is so easy to do and does not cost a cent but it is so valuable!

Definitely yes,it makes you happy knowing that you`re making other people happy.Praising other people is also a good habit because you`re seeing the good things about other people and thus you`re going to do it to yourself as well in a sense that you`re not going to be hard on yourself if you fail or made a mistake,your going to be positive about your own life too.Listening and comforting a friend also uplifts us more than the friend we have comforted. It`s also a great feeling knowing that you didn`t hurt someone else`s feelings and if we did it`s not a weakness to ask for forgiveness or if somebody has hurt your feelings it is also nice to forgive them.Forgiveness helps you heal yourself as well,not forgiving someone who hurt you can make your life miserable more than the person who did wrong to you,because that person might have already forgotten about the things that he or she did, but you you`re still thinking about it and that`s painful.

Yes anna, i strongly believe all these can make a beautiful and bright life but it should be genuine. Some people only act there is no truth. Any thing should be honest. I think you must have read the life of the people.

I am a sportsman, a leader, a christian, a husband and a father, and if I have learned something in my life, it is these: "Simple things matter BIG time." Even I craved to be touched, to be thanked and to be praised. Let's be real, who doesn't? But sometimes even I have a hard time of expressing those things. I am a quiet person but deep inside I always wanna touch others trough small acts like those mentioned above. But I do have a fight inside me against my "Awww, it's too corny!!" mentality. But please, to those people out there, reach out in a simple way, but affect lives greatly. God bless.
