What Is It That Makes You Smile?

From the moment I knew that smiling and being happy is healthy for us and keep us younger longer, I keep it as a habit to be smiling at most times. I found it even more rewarding when I see that people that I meet at the streets smile back at me. It is highly noticeable though, that the smiles that we flash gets a perk whenever we see a good friend, a long lost acquaintance, a pet, and a beautiful thought. Will you agree with me that things of beauty that we see makes us give a hearty smile?

you have a deep way of looking at smiling...something about making you strong. it is good that you perceive smiling to generate some strength within you. keep on smiling then at most times of the day.

Totally agree, when the trees are blooming, when the sun is shining, when my son tells me he loves me and hugs me at the same time, when strangers smile and say morning or hi, and when someone at the counter of a store smiles and asks how my day is going... as well as many others, these things make me smile all the time :)

i am pretty sure that nothing can come to the measure of happiness our child brings us with the hugs, kisses and i love you's. but, there will still other more things that can make us happy. yes, this is true that those beautiful sights can make us all happy, those friends and those kind strangers that we meet.

There are alot of things that make me smile :) I smile everyday when the sun goes down just enough to make it dark outside but you can still see everything and there're lights on in homes. It looks so warm and cozy through the neighborhood at that time of day, I have to smile. I also smile whenever I look at my dog. She's the sweetest thing in the world, I love her so much. Then there are the times when I watch a little kid playing. They're having a BLAST just running around! Everything is so exciting to them and new. They laugh with all of their body and put everything into play time. I look at them and try to remember that feeling and smile.

yes, it is true that we use less muscles by smiling rather than frowning. also smiling counters the effect of gravity on our face.

I know and understand that smiles make us healthy, but in my case there are many times where I don't get to smile. Having balance in my house makes me happy.

They say smile and the whole world smiles with you. I believe that i smile as i pass people on the street and i smile when i think of how lucky i am and when i think of family members and my love of my life. Smiling is also linked to better health because it put u in a better mind set not so stressed. I was also told a really neat saying by my grandmother and it does stand to be true she told me to smile it makes people wonder what you are up too. lol

Smiles - First Smiles
i can't hold myself from smiling when i see babies smiling too. there’s no smile like a baby’s smile specially the first toothless smiles. their smiles are adorable and priceless for me. they are simply the best smiles that make me smile (from the heart).

Yes, I agree with you absolutely. Those simple things can really give us a hearty smile. A lot of simple things make me smile and happy! A text from my loved ones or friends makes me smile. Because I know they have remembered me. A simple thank you from other people makes me smile again.

I love to smile, but the people in my life that make me smile the most are my son and my husband.

I have read where it takes many more muscle to frown than it does to smile. I love to smile. I try to smile at everyone I meet because after all it might be the only smile they see all day long. It just might make their day. I love my grin lines! LOL

Lots of things make me smile and yes things of beauty do make the lips curve upward. I like to smile about going home from work this afternoon, spending time with family and friends, spending time with beloved pets, enjoying favorite activities or hobbies, and much more. I think that smiling and just being happier in general keep you healthier longer. A positive attitude help you to feel better and have a more positive outlook on life. There are times when we can't avoid getting a little down, but we can remember that tomorrow hasn't been written yet and gives us a fresh start. I like to feel positive about things and about myself.
