From school cultural fests to ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, thousands of shows and programs are held to encourage talents. Programs like ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ are held to find the best, biggest and most entertaining talents. Now a days, schools and colleges take special care in encouraging the talents in students. Talents are a source of living for many people in today’s world. Talent is a natural aptitude or skill which with training can help a person to go the distance.
As stated earlier, programs like ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, ‘The Voice’, ‘So You Think You Can Dance’, etc are held to find the best, biggest and most entertaining talents. Yes, the big medias like to talk only about the biggest and the best, but I am just a small writer who likes to give credit to small things. So, in this article I would like to talk about the Smallest Talent In The World. ( I might be the first person in the whole world to talk about the smallest talent in the world and if so I need credit for that 😛 😉 )
So, you might be wondering what the ‘Smallest Talent In The World’ that I am talking about is. This talent is done using just about 17-26 of our facial muscles. It is a talent that can be easily done by most of the people in the world (but yet some people refuse to do it). Dear Readers, the ‘Smallest Talent In The World’ that I am talking about is Smiling.
So, now you might be wondering what makes me think that Smiling is the Smallest Talent In The World. Calm Down! Calm Down! I’ll tell you.
As mentioned earlier, Smiling just requires the movement of about 17-26 of our facial muscles (There is difference of opinion in regarding the number of facial muscles that need to be used to smile). So, when we compare Smiling to other talents like Dancing it is easy to understand that Smiling is indeed a small talent.
Yes, before telling why I think Smiling is the Smallest Talent, I am supposed to tell why Smiling is considered as a talent in the first place. Smiling is just a small gesture we do using our faces. But this Smiling has the power to change things. We just don’t realize it.
What does talents like dancing, singing, etc do? They spread happiness, joy and positivity and that is exactly what Smiling also does. So, that pretty much qualifies Smiling as a talent right?
A legit smile has two main factors. They are the lips and the eyes. When a person smiles, the lips spread happiness and joy. The eyes on the other hand spread positivity and honesty.
Smiles are quick fixes to problems. That’s what my own personal experiences taught me. Like all others I too face problems. At times I feel sad and low. During all those times, smiling helps me overcome my troubles. When I am sad, I like to go in front of a mirror and smile. Yes, sometimes I find it very difficult to smile, but I force myself to do it. Sometimes when I really can’t do it, I place my index finger and thumb on the ends of my lips and push it upwards. It is an artificial smile but it still has the power to fix my problems atleast a few moments. And sometimes my artificial smiles make me look like a mini version of The Joker from the Batman series.
Dear Readers, the thought that ‘Smiling Is The Smallest Talent In The World’ is just a random thought that popped into my mind. My actual point that I am trying to make is that we have to recognize the signifance of smiling. We smile to different people we meet in our life. Sometimes we do it even if we don’t like to. But amidst all this we have failed to realize the power of smiles.
I am saying this from the bottom of my heart people. Smiling actually spreads happiness, joy and positivity. So please use 26 of your facial muscles and make this world a better place.
