When I was a little girl, I learned a song about smiling when you’re feeling bad. The words go like this:
If you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay!
Quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away.
No one likes a frowny face, change it for a smile!
Make the world a better place by smiling all the while
Isn’t that a great little lyric? Good advice for anyone!
Sometimes when we feel bad, we need to try and do things to cheer ourselves up. It may not always work, but trying to think about happier things can help. Learning to have a positive attitude about everything can make all the difference. The lyrics to the Nat King Cole song, SMILE explains that pretty well.
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
And being happy can rub off on other people! My husband has a great smile and he smiles a lot. People are always telling me that they notice that he smiles a lot and seems to always be happy. He is a pretty happy go lucky guy… and it rubs off. Smiling at others can cheer them up too.
I’m grateful for smiles. For others who smile at me and for my own smile. I do try to share it and help lift others up! How about you? Who have you smiled at today?
I Am Grateful! How Are You?
And of course…… when you smile, you’re Happy! And minions always make me Smile!
