Cory says smiles are free and in his words:

I could feel the warmth, the acceptance, the recognition back to me. Little pings from one human to another. And it felt … good. Really good. The light of others humans signaling to me and a resonating glow turned on inside of me.

I try to do this all the time. I also try to respond warmly and strongly when the coffee shop attendant asks how I’m doing. Usually I say something like “I’m spectacular, how about you?”

It’s amazing to see the face of the person I’m talking to light up.

How did you make someone light up today? How are you going to make someone light up today?
