Aug. 2014: My friend and I boarded a local bus in Gwangju, S. Korea. The driver greeted us with a cheerful and sincere "Hello!",in Korean of course.
It lifted my spirits instantaneously.
(local bus drivers in Korea have a reputation for being grumpy so this was a pleasant surprise)
I began to observe the facial expressions of the boarding patrons as he continued to greet each and every one with equal energy and enthusiasm. Watching him slap smiles on their faces was a sight to see. It was 15 or so stops before I had to get off, about 30 minutes. He didn't let up a simple, so BEAUTIFUL

Sprinkle some positivity on a stranger’s day, it will raise the both of you up. Instant karma!

Highly recommend you watch this video, similar story. You are in control of your own happiness and can lift others...infinite birds, one stone
