Smiling Through the Pandemic - Day 17

Smiling Through the Pandemic - Day 17

When I smile, I immediately feel better.

Like you, I always seek to feel good.  I want to feel “up” and energetic, sharp and “with it,” and positive and useful. 

Smiling seems to put a shine on my day, a hop in my step, and an inspiration in my heart. 

Feelings are the emotional “facts” of the moment, and a smile focuses on the most vitalizing emotional facts that are present in any situation if you look hard enough. 

Smiling doesn’t mean that I’m a fraud, that I’m a Pollyanna – always needing to see only the good things and only allowing positive feelings in.

Smiling energizes me so that I don’t overlook those fantastic flashes of true reality, those intangible facets of the Presence of the Divine that elevate me and bring me home.

A smile helps me begin to understand the magnificence of wholeness in reality… and wholeness feels good!

The shortest distance between two people is a smile.
