Smile


Smile, it costs nothing.

The more you smile, the happier you are. How true it sounds but in theory. We have forgotten how to smile. It has become a thing of past because we find it difficult to keep ourselves happy. The stress levels have sky rocketed. Now we need a reason to smile. There may not be a rational reason to be angry but we like seeing ourselves flush-red in face. It’s not necessary to have a cause, a reason to smile, smile for the good day, smile for the good food we eat and smile for the love we get from our family and for the healthy life.

Accept good with gratitude to god and bad without complaints. We complain all the time, think of all those less blessed, under privileged sons of god who do even get good clothes to wear or eat healthy food and yet they never complain. We are a lot better than them, so stop crying and start smiling. Remember, god never stops smiling on us. It’s just that we don’t see the bright side.

Happiness exists only if we are contented. If we are not satisfied with who we are or what we are doing, we may never feel joyous. Till that satisfaction is not there, life is not worth enjoying. Satisfaction and smile compliments each other and if we miss out on either one of them, we miss everything. And we see the world the way we are, angry, agitated and with a false mirth.

A young child always has a smile on face because he has no feelings of hatred or jealousy towards anyone. The idea of negativity or anger or frustration never took birth in his mind. His psyche is full of bliss and satisfaction. He lives in the moment and is contented with what he is doing, doesn't matter if it make sense or not. But as he grows, he learns from surroundings and slowly forgets to smile. He gets serious and less contented. He overlooks how to live in the moment. The moment when he’s in the present he starts thinking about the future with all the worries that engulf him, as a result, not only the present is ruined but he wastes a lot of time thinking about the wrong decisions he made in past. We worry about the future, we talk about the past but we forget about the present.

We must have self respect and feel good factor about our-self. If you have no respect for yourself, people will automatically stop valuing you or your words and eventually you will stop smiling.

Love yourself to love others. If you cannot love yourself, you can never share a smile with someone. A person without smile is nothing but a zombie. If we do not love our self we can never love others.  

So if you want to see the world smiling, make a habit, start smiling from today, smile for the good day god has given you, for the satisfaction you have in your work, for the people who care for you, soon, you will find out, smile cost nothing but it adds a lot of value not only in your life but in others as well.

  2. While smiling is a good thing, fake smiles put me off big-time. I hope people stop it or they will lose respect with everyone.
