“I was smiling yesterday.
I am smiling today
and I will smile tomorrow.
life is too short to cry for anything.”
– Santosh Kalwar
I just love this quote. I try to smile everyday even when I have to find something to smile about for things are too muddled to easily smile. That’s when my family and pets become my reason to smile. That’s when I count the blessings in life that I find gratitude for ~ you know, the big ones and even the small ones that we sometimes miss? I become even more aware of them than usual when I need to put a smile on my face. It’s when I walk out into nature to smile at what surrounds me ~ birds in the yard, a sunrise, and even snowflakes ~ that I feel the embrace of Mother Nature smiling on me.
It’s not that I don’t cry because I do cry sometimes. I find that my tear ducts need clearing out every once in awhile and it’s good to allow grief to pour out and cleanse my soul. So I can find my smile again and recharge.
Do you smile everyday?
What makes you smile?
