Why You Should Smile
“The world always looks brighter from behind a smile. –Author unknown”. No matter how bad things are, how low you feel, or how dreary life seems, your overall view of the world would greatly change if you smile. A smile can put you in a good mood to face even the most difficult challenge of the day.
“A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks. – Charles Gordy”. Many people go to great lengths to change their appearance through clothing, make-up accessories, and cosmetic surgery, etc. very few realize that oftentimes all they need to do is to improve the quality and sincerity of their smile. Other people seldom notice your flaws when you wear a big, bright smile!
“A smile is the light in the window of your face that tells people you’re at home. – Author unknown”. When you smile at someone, it signifies that you are there for that person. A smile acknowledges the presence of the other party, establishes the connection between the two of you, and announces that you are available for interaction. You can say “Hi!” without actually saying it; simply do it with a smile!
“It takes 17 muscles to smile and 43 to frown. –Author unknown”. It actually takes more effort to frown than to smile, you only need 17 muscles from each side of your face to smile. Frowning distorts your face and when habitually done produces deep ugly wrinkles.
I’ve never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful. Why is it that contestants in beauty pageants project their best smiles? A smiling face is associated with beauty, confidence and attractiveness, even the most average looking face starts to glow once it starts to smile. No make-up can paint a sincere smile on your face; only a cheerful heart.:)
