Out of all of the facial expressions we make, which facial expression has opened the most doors for us? The answer is simple, a smile. A smile is more powerful than words. It can be the thing that opens the door to friendship, a job opportunity, and so much more. So why do we walk around with any other facial expression? Why do we care what people will think if we walk around smiling? The only people that have a problem with you smiling are people you don’t want to associate with in the first place. So why not use your smile as a tool to weed out the people that shouldn’t be in your life?
When you feel angry, smile! When you want to cry, smile! Is it easier said than done? NO! You can put on a smile faster than you can come up with an excuse of why you can’t. A smile is like rubber when it comes to negative things. If someone says something with the intention of hurting you, respond with a smile. Now, not only do you feel great, but all of a sudden they feel the way they intended to make you feel, angry. With a smile you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Start taking the time out to find the positive in everything negative. The choice is up to you, it’s not hard to do, smile!
