Smile Is A Short Path To Happiness

If you want to be happy, be.  ~Leo Tolstoy

Yellow Rose

Yellow Rose

So much what the world presents us is a direct result of what we present to the world.  If you open up your door and step outside with a smile, the world will smile back.  If you step outside with a frown you will most likely find doom and gloom.

We often blame the world for all of our problems as if we were just bystanders of our own lives.  True, sometimes things happen that we can not control, but mostly what we experience is a reflection of how we are feeling inside.

Why not try, as an exercise, to spend a day without getting caught up with every little thing that happens?

Why not try, as an exercise, to slow down your day enough so you can appreciate a kind word, the weather, a pet or a joke.

Why not try, as an exercise, before stepping outside your door to smile at a pleasant thought.

I’m sure at the end of your day of living life in a different way, you will want to do more smiling as your day was without a doubt lighter and you were happier and so were the people around you.
