smiling

I am nobody. Nobody is perfect. Therefore I am perfect.

 

Internet quotes:

“The problem with internet quotes is verifying them.”

Abraham Lincoln

 

It’s easy to get people to smile. Just smile at them. They might wonder what you’re smiling about, but it is still hard for them to resist smiling back. Some might think you’re a little daft, but, oh, well. That’s life. I think it takes a little craziness to get through all of life’s trials and inconveniences, not to mention real problems.

The age-old argument that it takes fewer muscles to smile than it does to frown has not been scientifically verified. But if you smile more than frown, your smiling muscles will be in better shape, thereby taking less effort. And if you have to fake a smile, it still will have a positive effect on your body and your mood. “When you’re smiling, the whole world smiles with you.”

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
