A smile is a powerful gift. Don't lose sight of it. If you've ever backpacked with me and taken my photos facing away from the camera, you know you'd heard me many times saying/yelling out, and even laughing out loud "I'm still smiling and I don't care that i'm not facing the camera!"
Not only does smiling promote a positive, feel good feeling, it also makes other people smile back. You know what else is good? Losing yourself to someone else's smile (not in a romantic kind of way, but that works too) brings more joy and happiness to yourself. It becomes easier to trust and connect with others when you smile genuinely. It's a win-win positive practice ❤️
