Smiles, smiles, there are all kinds of smiles.
You can see this in the collage.
Can you detect the smile of the model?
The ordinary person obliging before someone’s camera?
How about the irrespresible spontaneous smile erupting in exhuberant laughter or beaming all over the face or shining out from the eyes?
What makes you smile that way? What stirs your heart, brings light into your eyes, and ends up curving your lips without your bidding?
Here’s a challenge for you this week: Pay attention, and try to catch yourself smiling that way, and determine what has brought it on. You might be surprised. It might be a seemingly small thing. If you keep a journal or daily lists, note down your smile and its trigger. And consider what truly delights your heart.
Then make an effort to get yourself more often in company with what brings out that good and heart-deep smile.
Smiles to you this week!
