Give Out a Smile (Daily Chill)


Chillout: If someone is too sad or tired to give you a smile, leave one of your own. No one needs a smile as much as those who have none to give.

Smiles come naturally to some of us and I'm so glad I happened to get those genes.

I have read more than once that it is supposed to be easier smiling than frowning because smiling only takes 4 muscles & frowning takes 50-some. I agree that the quality of my relationships with other people would be better if I could just go around smiling, but I do find frowning to be easier. It is very frustrating when I am actually feeling relatively good but then I catch my reflection in a store window or something & I look very nasty.
