What makes you smile?

I am known by my friends as the smiling face girl, even as a little girl smiling is quiet easy for me to do? I smile at almost anything. I smile when I see flowers, rainbows, shinning stars in the middle of a black night, seeing someone caring for someone, meeting new and extra ordinary people, even at strangers. You can make me smile with a bad joke or an even an old common one, I can also smile at failures I made in life. I thank God everyday for giving me so many reasons to smile. I meet people who find it really hard to smile or thinks its such a weakness and I pity them. In books regarding our body muscles, experts say that we exercise more facial muscle when we smile instead of frown. It makes us feel and look young too!

I am known as having a big smile. I love to smile and am alot like you. Smiling can cheer anyone up, and a smiling face is always more pleasurable to see then a frowning one. A smile is when the heart shines through and it feels like the sun has come out, everything brightens and lightens. Even if you don't feel good, i think it's good to try and smile as it will gradually really make you smile and then you will feel better automaically. When a stranger smiles at me, it instantly puts me at ease and reassures me, I try to do the same where ever I go too! Smiling doesn't cost a thing, and we may not be able to do much for people, but a smile is always something we can give to brighten someone's day. Happy smiling.

Smiling face girl is always popular among her friends. They bring more happiness to their friends, adding much more to themselves as well. I always believe in God. No matter what happens to me, I will smile to those difficulties and struggle to overcome them. Smile is my power,driving me to move forward.

Hi there! What a good attitude towards life you have that you can still smile at failures in life. That's what we call a happy disposition and it's one of the hardest things to achieve in life. There are a lot of things that can make me smile me too. When I see something funny, while watching TV, when talking to someone and we're having a good time and when I see a friend I smile too. But these are just simple things that make me smile. Smile can be something deep too. Like when you're happy you smile. The only thing can make me smile, not just with my lips but deep within my heart are my pets that I love so much. Ciao!

They say that a honest and simple smile can do wonders and make you live longer... it seems that you are an immortal. Well I smile too for many reasons but not so often like you. I smile when I see others smilling, when I make somebody happy, newly I smile when I cook for my folks and they are satisfied ( some call it sparkle smile, just appear suddenly). But my main reason when I'm smilling is when I'm with my friends and family, just seeing them near me makes me smile often .. ok I have my bitter days too but thee small uprising lips never fade. And about the frown and smile I read that when we frown we use 72 muscles and when we smile only 14 also smilling has been discovered to be beneficial not only to our health physically but also mentally. So letsall keep smilling but honestly and not just like that (even though that can do little wondes too).

I smile everytime I see my grandchild waking up every morning. Continususly I smile when she hugs and kisses me, sings and dances. I do smile when she tells stories of what she did or what she had experienced the whole day. My grand baby really makes me smile everyday. I do smile when I see my friends, when I read messages from my online friends and when I hear good news from them. I smile when I watch shows that enetertains me and more I smile when my children kisses me everytime they leave the house and continuously smile everytime I think of beuatiful memories.

It is always good to smile! I am known to smile alot too, even when I am not feeling well. But it is just in who I am. I always try to see things optimistically the "glass is half full not half empty". I am always thankful to God for everything even the bad things because in the end his love will prevail over everything.How can we not smile about that.

My friends and family are people who make me smile. I am always smiling because I am thinking about somebody special like a friend, boyfriend, family, or even my church family. I can smile through the bad things in life simply because I have people in my life who makes me smile.

I smile at my little baby girl when she is looking at me. I smile at my toddler boy when he has built a tall tower from his colorful building bricks. I smile at my mother when she tells me something funny. I smile when I get a product in my supermarket trolley that I really have wanted to get. I smile when I go out for an afternoon to a beach for a coastal walk. I smile when I go off traveling overseas.

Go and smile, it would increase your face value. Yes, smiling people are nice to observe and seeing them you too feel elated. On the contrary if you happen to come across a grumpy face you feel like battering on the spot. I am not that way a smiling person. But I do send smile to the familiar faces. I am often charged as being a grave fellow. Do not know how far it is possible.
