How you do something is as important as what you are doing. Our goal is to help elevate the individual at every level – physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
We should also keep in mind that others will be impacted, directly and indirectly – smiles are contagious.
“Rejoice in every mitzva, in every word of Torah we learn, and in every smile that we’re able to grace other people with. Charity begins at home – the first people who deserve our smiles are our spouses, our parents and our children. Life is beautiful with smiles and gratitude. Once a person learns that everything Hashem does is for the best, he can truly smile – not a plastic smile, but a deep sincere smile from way down deep in the heart. That type of smile has the power to make the sun shine and to illuminate another person’s life.”
– From Rabbi Nachman’s teachings.
