Smile is only a smile, but the sight of someone’s lips beaming can go a long way. In a world that entertains negativity, a smile is sometimes all it takes to remind us that optimism is more charming, helpful even. It can’t be said enough, a smile reminds us of good things – your first paycheck, the moment you realized you were in love, your mother’s pancakes. It conveys joy, contentment, new experience, and anything that makes the heart full.
But life is not always roses and sunshine. Sometimes, we feel we’ve lost the reason to smile. Moments of grief and disappointments bring us down. However, it’s also during these times we realize that a smile isn’t only about happiness. Other times, a smile is courage, strength, and unshakeable willpower.
Whatever happens, we’re blessed with a million reasons to smile, and that’s an undeniable truth. Cute animals, giggling babies, silly friends, a fully stocked pantry, awesome weather, the list goes on. So do yourself (and others) a favor and make the world less dreary with your smile. Here are delightful smile quotes to get you started.
