I smile


“Why are you smiling?” people have often asked me this to which I mostly do not have an answer. Well, call me crazy but it happens with me and I do not even feel anything weird about it. I mean what’s the harm in smiling?

There isn’t. Rather it is an exercise which reduces all your stress. It may be difficult to smile at difficult times and you might not even feel like giving yourself a good big smile but just try it once. It feels wonderful. We all have those bad days when we cry, we fight, we are moody, and we do not want to talk to anyone, when things are just not our way, when the world seems to go just against you, when everything conspires against you but just this one smile, please?

I smile every day, even on such rough days; especially on such rough days. I stand in front of my mirror, stare at myself and then give myself the most sweetest and the biggest smile that I can and just there I feel wonderful. As every problem has its own solution I am my own resolution. Cause no one can do anything for you unless you want to do it for yourself.

I stand there and tell myself that I am beautiful, I have the most wonderful smile, I am strong, invincible and I am capable of doing anything on my own and if not something better will come my way. I just have to trust myself and my destiny.

And so I smile


Well not always does one feel so optimistic, does he? 😉

  2. The very words to live by…..
    A smile can solve almost every problem…..
    Here is a joke, so that you can keep smiling….
    Two men are playing golf. One of them is about to take a swing when a funeral procession appears on the road next to the course. He stops mid-swing, takes off his cap, closes his eyes, and bows his head in contemplation. 
    His opponent comments: “That must be the most touching thing I’ve ever seen. You are a very feeling man.” The man, recovering himself, replies, “Yeah, well we were married 35 years.”

  3. Great post. I have similar sentiments regarding smiling. Looking in the mirror and giving myself a big smile is a daily ritual for me, as well. 🙂 Smiling automatically uplifts one’s mood!

    1. Smile is a smile, from heart or from your face.
      For me smile should be like Ketut from ‘Eat Pray Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert where you should smile not only from your face but also from your soul and heart. We should smile from our soul, mind, lungs even stomach.
      There is too much negativity all around us we don’t need that any more.

      1. I agree with you completely.
        But we don’t come across such smiles more frequently.

        Yes, there indeed is and we don’t need that anymore.
        Probably, I am one of them spreading the negativity in some way. 😐🙈

      2. It’s not like I don’t want to. But sometimes life doesn’t just allow it to.

        And you’re too kind and also it beats me how people are so full of positivity.

        Well anyhow, I will try my best. And Happy New Year. 😊
