IMGP3353bTake a moment.

Think of something that makes you S~M~I~L~E.

Feel that S~M~I~L~E radiating positive energy, inflating your inner tube of happiness like a balloon.

That’s it!

Now S~M~I~L~E about something else.  And something else.  And something else.

Go, you!

We can create happiness anytime anywhere . . . if that isn’t something to S~M~I~L~E about, what is?

A smile makes the saddest man a little happier. ~ John Gilstrap (Nathan’s Run)

Aah . . . that’s better!

I’m going to do that today and all those smiles and thoughts of happy things will plug up all the holes that little worry thoughts can barge in.. 🙂

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Exactly! It’s hard to sustain our worries when we are grinning silly grins at rabbits. 😀

2. colonialist - March 8, 2013

It worries the heck out of people who wonder what you know that they don’t …

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Yes . . . they wonder what we’ve been up to. 😉

3. suzicate - March 8, 2013

Life is good, and there’s much to smile about! 🙂

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

The more things we find to SMILE about . . . the more MILES we put between frowns. 😀

4. ericjbaker - March 8, 2013

I was going to smile, but those rabbits scared me.

😉

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Bunnies can be terrifying . . . especially when they sneak into the house while you’re sleeping to bring you baskets of candy. 😉

**shudders**

In a world that is negative by nature, people will think you are mentally ill for being so happy. But if your God is alive why would you be depressed?

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

When faced with the choice . . . I choose happy. 😀

E Bishop Wooten - March 8, 2013

real happiness not medicated happiness
🙂

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Yes . . . the kind of JOY that tingles my toes. 😀

6. bluebee - March 8, 2013

It costs nothing 😀

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Yup . . . a FREE antidote to daily S~T~R~E~S~S! 😀

7. Andra Watkins - March 8, 2013

I’m smiling, because MTM is coming home any minute.

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Yay for BFF’s! 😀

8. JOriginal Muse - March 8, 2013

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Perfect! 😀

9. shreejacob - March 8, 2013

Thank you! This post made me smile 😀

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Yay! Exactly the reaction I hoped for. 😀

10. Patricia - March 8, 2013

We needed smiles at work today. Lots of complaining. What’s with that?! I like the smile option much better.

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Same here. I had enough melodrama in high school to last me a life time. 😀

11. Tammy - March 8, 2013

Did you know if you speak on the telephone while smiling that the other party will hear it?

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

Yes! Happiness and SMILES are contagious . . . even if we can’t see them, we sense them. 😀

12. sufilight - March 8, 2013

Just the thought of reading your post made me smile. Yesterday a lady bus driver told me that whenever she sees me, she can’t stop smiling. Seems I sometimes have the affect on folks who get to know me and I can be myself around them. 😀

nrhatch - March 8, 2013

That is so COOL!!! Not only that you make her SMILE but that she shared that intel with you.

Sometimes when I see someone frowning, I send WAVES of SMILES their way. It works. 😀

You reminded me, Nancy: yesterday evening Phil came home with a joke from work. Not a joke, just a silly idea, something to do with shaving logos onto camels and letting them walk round airports for advertising. And he had been chuckling helplessly about it ever since. It’s so good for him. And it’s infectious.

nrhatch - March 9, 2013

You’ve got me grinning, Kate . . . imagine camels wandering the concourse, spitting out cud. 😀

14. dearrosie - March 9, 2013

What a great idea Nancy.
I’m still smiling because we just got home from a glorious 6 mile hike today, but I have to work tomorrow… sigh… its not easy for me to smile on Saturday evenings 😦

nrhatch - March 9, 2013

Glad you enjoyed the hike . . . I enjoyed the walk around your neighborhood. 😀

15. jannatwrites - March 10, 2013

A better mood happens one smile at a time 🙂 😀 😆

nrhatch - March 10, 2013

Mr Green agrees! :mrgreen:

16. diannegray - March 10, 2013

I absolutely LOVE a good smile 😀

nrhatch - March 10, 2013

It brightens up the space in whatever place I’m in. It’s just hard to feel bad with a smile on your face.

17. spilledinkguy - March 11, 2013

🙂 Looks like your smiles are contagious, Nancy! 🙂

nrhatch - March 11, 2013

Yes! Smiles travel at the speed of laughter. 😀

18. Perfecting Motherhood - March 12, 2013

Reading this made me smile. 🙂

nrhatch - March 12, 2013

Yay! Spreading smiles makes ME smile.
