Often in life, there are days when we don’t even want to get out of bed, let alone get on with our day. We can look at the day ahead as something to dread or we can change our vision of what it will be with a breath.

This is merely a matter of changing your perspective. When you wake up in the morning, think of the brand new day and smile. And feel how that smile changes what you feel inside.

Now, take that smile out into the world with you and each time you see or meet another person, smile. How does it feel? It’s kind of hard to be miserable when you’re smiling isn’t it? And it’s very rare that you don’t get a smile in return from someone else.

How about when you answer the phone – before you pick up the phone, put a smile on your face. Doesn’t it change the whole energy of the conversation? Of you?

A smile can go a long way to help shift from negative thinking and feeling, to a more positive one. Even if you aren’t really feeling it inside, you can “fake it till you make it” as they say because eventually, it will feel real and it will feel good.

There is something about a smile that can change everything not only for you but for someone else. It may be the one act of kindness that shifts another person’s day.

Keep smiling!
