I'd been away for some time because I am really busy with so many things. As I was browsing mylot, I thought of how busy people are and they still have time to join in mylot. Today is Friday and it's really a busy day for everybody. I wonder "DID YOU SMILE TODAY?" "WHAT ABOUT?" or you'd been grumpy and keep sighing the whole day. A smile can make a great difference to you and to someone else's life. Its a very simple act of stretching the smile muscle and it has great effect on others and to you. So, did you really smile today?

Yes, I did.. Though I have been worrying about my health problem, i still got the chance to smile.. my hubby's been my entertainer/clown for almost four years.. he never fails to make me smile/brighten up my day.. I don't think my life would be without him by my side.. He always makes me laugh at his jokes and that's what i like about him the most(sense of humor).. i love my hubby, i really really do...

Hi! I am so glad that you smiled today. From your sentences I could feel you are not feeling well. I hope you get well soon. Our physical belongings are just borrowed things. Your treasured happiness and love from your husband is very important and that what matters most. I would like to thank your husband too for keeping a soul happy everyday. He is a great man! Keep up the good work. Thank you for sharing your smile with me. &(^_^)&

Hello leateageee!!! If you have asked me didn't you smile today, then it would have something special for me. I keep smiling and am smiling while responding your discussion. I don't know why I like to smile and keep smiling in most of the occasions like while talking to friend and just before too, I was responding in an interesting discussion and I kept smiling and posting alone here in the room. If any one of my family see me at the moment, then they would have already commented about this... I smile too much that there are many times I have tried myself not to smile too much. I think that is my nature and that's why I can't control myself a lot... And you too keep smiling...Happy mylotting...

Thanks for your nice comment leateageeee!!! Hmm I will surely try to pass it. I can't certainly transfer my smile hehe...Just look at your friends on whom you want to transfer smile, and smile at him in a funny way, they he/she would surely smile hehee....But I have done that in life to irritate others lol...Well it is a too funny thing to do some times. For making fool, I look at the friends face and keep smiling, and its funny to look at their confusing face hehe... You too, keep smiling and hope you will transfer your smile..Good luck...

I remember calling my old friend to catch up on things... i haven't talked to her for a very long time... and that telephone call was really a good thing... it made me smile a lot to know that her two daughters are both studying and they are turning into lovely and smart kids... And today is Saturday... i smiled because my daughter requested that we eat pasta... and i love pasta too... like mother like daughter...

Yup, I had a sime early in the morning. And above all. I had so much of fun that I laughed a lot as well. After so many days, I met my parents and my sister's family today. Had a lovely time there... and the day was so relaxed and great. Its really nice when you feel that your heart is light with no tensions, work pressure, burdens.. etc... etc

Well I did smile today, it is my work, assisting my cutomers, so I guess I have lots of reasons to smile about, one would be because I like that I helped people today, I shared my little expertise on computers, when customers paid me , hmmm, just shallow circumstances, I realized I did not laughed this day though. Smile can be pretentious, but laugh I think it is more spontaneous , a burts of feelings , which can actually melts down your stress, like a cold water sprinkled on a summer day so refreshing, so maybe my next discussion would be , have you laughed today? thanks for the inspiration though...have a nice day tomorrow

Hello, You have a great job. Without you a lot of people will be lost. You have a good point of view there. I do agree with you. I might do that for the next discussion. But you know, it is really difficult to 'smile' ... what more to laugh. We can smile alone if we really feel happy and giggle to it. But laughing is a little difficult task. Happy people always have a way to laugh but for others it will take some time. If you'll ask me, yes I smiled and I laughed today. I am glad you smiled today though as you said sometimes it can be pretentious. Great opinions, thank you for sharing. happy mylotting. Pass the smile! &(^_^)&

Yes i did..People are even forgetting to smile nowadays due to their hectic schedule. Keep a smile on your face always because that not only makes you look good but also keeps happy and refreshed. So dudes keep passing the smile to all.

We have hundred of reasons to smile. we can even smile and laugh at our own foibles and mistakes. A sense of joy after doing a good deed brings smile on our face. Remaing sulky and grumpy is of no use, rather it is destructive. Our life is replete with multiple problems. In order to face these challenges, we need to be ennergised, confident, healthy and fresh. And Smiling face of ours will wipe out our tension and spread joys around us. You never how many people get delighted and feel energised just to see you smiling and happy.

Welcome to mylot! You have great thoughts. Yes, you are right. You have a very positive outlook towards life and it is very nice. But you see in reality not all people have the same perspective towards life in general. When a person feels tired, the tendency is to be grumpy. Its like the whole world is falling and he is the only one moving. I do agree with you that with a single smile, it can infect people to release tension and spread joy. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful opinion. Happy mylotting! &(^_^)&

I am known to be a smiling face always and I am happy for that although there are time that I am being put into trouble if my dimples shows up! I am a person who pleases easily and I don't see any reason why I should frown all day. Frowning makes us look older while smiling keeps us young. So indeed, smile! You'll never know that someone is being happy and saved just because you smiled at them!
