70 Reasons to Smile

Wear Your Smile Proudly

A smile a day keeps the blues away. At least in my opinion it does. We could always find a reason to smile. It's not that difficult to do. Smiling is a simple pleasure in life.

Even when you think there is nothing that could make you expose a goofy grin, I bet you can.

When is the last time you made someone smile? Do you remember how good that made you feel? It's an amazing feeling and so easy to accomplish.

When is the last time someone made you smile? I bet you never expected it, but you were grateful and remember it vividly.

Wear your smile proudly. If you walk through life with a pout, people feel sorry for you, which in turn might lack respect for you. So, go ahead and smile twenty-four hours a day. Yes, even while you are asleep.

There's more hope by dazzling others with your smile, then by greeting them with a frown. No one likes a debby downer.

The best smiles are the unexpected ones. The ones that you least expect, the ones that make you stop and think...what are they up to?

The power of a sunshine smile is wonderful. So smile more often and remember that happy looks good on you!

I would add the privilege of a hot soak in the bath in the morning (prefer that to a shower), having my god children wrap their arms tightly around my neck for a super hug and fresh, clean sheets on my bed. In the end it all comes down to gratitude.

Flora - Does the HubPages weekly come to your email or is it online? I have never seen it and am starting to think I might be missing some communications. I checked my email settings in my profile but don't see anything about this newsletter. I appreciate any help you can give.


FloraBreenRobison profile image

FloraBreenRobison 5 years ago

ktrapp-it is supposed to come to your email, along with an update on your hub views and profile views during the past week. Yours might be getting sent to your junk file? You can read them online without the personalized update online. you can find it by first going to the right of your page and clicking on the latest blog post. At the top of the page you will find a list of options-one of which is the newsletter.

I will be posting this most beautiful list to my Facebook page with a direct link back here because I feel we all need to use these thoughts and suggestions as a reference from time to time - and yes I was unaware about Cancer Breast Awareness month so my poem is good timing and we all have our own cancer stories unfortunately in real life - I lost my dad to lung cancer back in 1992 at the age of 74.

Trading raspberries with my grandson. Sure, he's really too old to be doing that now (and so am I!), but it's kind of our (albeit messy) code for "Love you!"

and...

an addition to #40: Finding out the EX's current wife is playing around on him. What goes around... tee hee ;D

Just caught number 27: "The American flag and all it's glory." Really weird and pathetic -the whole hub.


Sunshine625 profile image

Sunshine625 4 years ago from Orlando, FL Author

Unless u are an American I wouldn't expect u to appreciate #27 Matthew. Its considered rude to insult another country's flag.

Nyamache profile image

I like it when others make me smile and when I also make others smile. It feels good. We have many reasons why we should smile. This makes me to recall what is said in the book of Proverbs 17:22, "A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a downcast spirit dries up the bones." This is the good reason why we should be cheerful and this includes smiling.

Great hub! These are all very good reasons to smile. Now, you have me smiling. There's something about the beach, sound of the waves overlapping the shore, smell of suntan lotion and children building sand castles that just makes me smile.
