Peace Begins With A Smile!

begin with a smileMother Teresa said: “Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing”. “Peace begins with a Smile!”

Treat each day as if in order to survive, you must always be happy. This will not only affect your life, but all the lives around you.

Think back to when you did the most smiling, when you didn’t have to think so much about just surviving. Awwww, the years of being a child again, no problems and running around with nothing but a smile on your face.happy baby

What happened to all that smiling once we became an adult? As a child we we’re able to forgive quickly, not get so frustrated over the small things, enjoy the simple things in life and never take them for granted. We never held grudges against someone, because we would rather have fun playing with them.

I believe we were not put here on this earth to be miserable and live in survival mode every day. Sure, as an adult we face obstacles and challenges every day, but we need to learn to grow from them, not become negative because of them.

Our emotions become contagious to the people around us, whether it’s our family, friends, or strangers. We need to stay happy so that others will become effected by it. We’re only on this beautiful earth for a short time, we need to seize each and every day in an abundance of happiness.

From now on, when you wake up each morning, don’t be angry or sad, the day has just begun, BE HAPPY! Spring out of bed and hit the floor running like you did as a child. Make your new day a fun game, then the next day, play it again!

Life comes at you head on and very, very fast, when it does you have to be ready for it. Before you know it your day will be done, your week will be done and another year will be over. Your children will have children and your time on earth will come to an end as we know it.

big smilesI don’t know about you, but I plan on staying as happy as can be until that day comes for me. I know there will be bad days, sad days, negative days, and many obstacles, but that doesn’t mean that I have to accept them. Even with the loss of a child and having breast cancer,  I choose to play the game of life to it’s fullest in survival happiness with smiles for every one. How about You?
