Have you tried smiling by yourself?

There are times that we are alone and so we can't avoid sometimes to smile especially when we remember good memories with special people in our lives, an unexpected experience that made you smile, or sometimes when our aspirations and desires in life are granted.I am a keen observer so I know if someone is smiling by herself.If I see someone doing that, I smile too because I am happy for her.In our lives, we experience daily challenges but I think it's also okay to remember those things that will make you smile.Life is so short, we need not to spend much time in being so serious to many things;enjoy life instead. So, even if you are not with someone, you can still smile by yourself.How about you, have you tried smiling by yourself?

yup. Smile when saw other people smile and happy to her mean you have a beauty heart in your soul. Life should be smile, we are here and this is the luck that we are here to breath. If you are always smile when you think back your good memories mean you really have a lot of good memories, that's good. For me, I always complain in my heart when I had a hard time, but after a couple year, I remember back and sometime will smile alone. Haha this is life, enjoy it and stay happy. Have a nice day for you.

Hi Bren, Yes i always smile all by myself but i am confident that i am sane and that i am happy and remembering some funny things that can't stop me from smiling and even laughing. Laughter is the best medicine. It is therapeutic. Let's all learn how to take things lightly, smile and laugh a lot!

I also smiled upon reading your post. =) There. I smile too, most often without knowing it. And when I witness others smile by themselves, I feel happy for them as well. Sometimes you might think they're crazy, but you know for yourself you do that too. And when you remember that, you'll just be happy for the other person for remembering something so pleasant.

Yup, and it's really funny when your imagining that your smiling all alone. Same here, while I'm walking or on a jeep I remember some good times and I just smiled without any hesitation and all of a sudden I'll just realized that I'm alone.

Smile and the whole world smiles with you! It is normal for me to smile all alone, even if with no one to smile with. It always happen to me when i am in my emotive time, specially when i reminisce the beautiful happy moments that have had happen to me. Fortunate enough to have those epochal times in my life, I should say that you have to make the most of your time living here in this world. For short, LIFE is short!

I like this topic but I see it from a different view point as well. I always try to smile whenever I remember to because what I know is that smiling is medicine and it is very important for one to make sure he or she always has a smile on their face. This puts you in good spirits, decreases wrinkles on your face and makes you very approachable. So it is good to smile when you remember good times but sometimes smile just because it is good to do so!

Yes I smile a lot when I am by myself .Mnay persons think thi sis weird but sometimes fond memories just overtake you and there is nothing that you ca do about it .Like you said life is too short to spend making yourself sad when you have so many good times to remember .So keep smiling my friend whether to yourself or with someone else.

You are right about that, sometimes we will not even notice that we are smiling because of very good and precious memories that suddenly comes into our mind. Just like you, i also smile when i saw people smile. I feel happy for them, because i know, they have good memories tho cherish and remember in this world. I already tried smiling on my own, cause i have lots of good memories that are really good to remember and reminisce. Sometimes, a tears of joy, we cannot anymore control our happiness that is why we shed tear drops of happiness. You are right and i 100% agree with you. Life is short, we need to make the remainders of our life happy and wonderful and also we need to make sure that our purpose as a human being will be fulfilled in this world. So that the future, will still have a world to enjoy. Have a nice day and cheers for coming up with a good discussion.

There are many things that are not consistent with our heart in life.Meeting happy things we smile naturally while facing bad things we should study wreaking.Most of the time weeping is a way of wreaking.Do not have to pretend to smile.Crying is not simply negative.You may have the energy after crying.Wish you having a great time in your life and smile often.Perhaps I digress into your subject.Just want to express myself.

smiling improves ones face value and makes one release stress. i eventually try to memorise my beautiful past when i am full of stress and make me smile to release stress.

hi bren i have much time to be alone, so smiling by myself seems usually happen. everyone lonely will have a lot of thoughts and recollections, absolutly there will be many good memories, so simling just happens. as for me, the reason to smiling by myself is mainly the idle fancies. I'll always think what will happen and they always are good things. in my opinion, it 's very nice, as i heard The Law of Attraction. It is a famous natural law has accepted by many people and now been studied by many researcher. The most important thing it tell us is that what you want will come to you. So as the law says a happy person will be happy all the time. so, i think my situation is just good to me, and i appreciate the law, appreciate the good memories and the good thoughts i have. good luck!

Theres a lot of time when I caught myself smiling, for me it was so okay to smile for a while and reminisce the good things that you've once experienced. I can still remember one friend of mine caught me smiling alone and confront me why I am smiling. She thought that Im falling crazy because Im smiling alone. I just told her that somethings funny remind me and cant help myself smiling.
