Whatever you do, don’t take life so seriously. I often sit and watch others expressions on their faces as they walk pass me. Whether I’m in a crowded subway or a quaint and cozy coffee shop, most people never take the time to smile. You can absolutely tell who is having the worst day of their lives just by their facial expression. You truly only have one life to live so why not enjoy it while you’re here.
Life is too short to be angry. There aren’t too many things in the world that upset me. In fact, I can’t think of one. You may be thinking, “C’mon Joe, nothing upsets you?” My answer will still be no. Here’s why. We are not responsible for others actions towards us. However, we are responsible for how we react to their actions. I simply choose to react sensibly, reasonably and with the idea that I cannot let someone else control my feelings. I am in complete control.
A very good friend always says, “You attract more bees with honey than you do with a fly swatter”. If you aren’t attracting the right kind of attention, it is because you are not projecting that which you seek. A smile always attracts a smile. It takes little to no effort to smile. If you want to be happy, you must choose happiness and the rest will fall into place.
Take a moment right now to smile. See how good that feels? I challenge you to smile more often despite what your circumstances may be. I smile even when frowning may be the “normal” response to a particular situation. Remember, life is meant to be lived to the fullest; you can’t do that if you’re unhappy.
Smile; it’s contagious and it’s attractive.
To The Top!
