Positive Thinking - Smile, It Helps More Than You Know
Life isn't easy, I'm sure we can all agree with that. My life in particular has been one hell of a rollercoaster ride. But as bad as it may have been there were a few moments when it was good. Nonetheless I have never allowed the bad times to dictate my daily mentality. Sure I have been down and out, somewhat depressed and maybe even sad from time to time. But I put a lot of effort into not allowing these moment to control my day and so I try my best to continually put a smile on my face.
Yep, odds are if you were to be around me often you would rarely think there is anything wrong with me because even when someone is an ass with me I still have a smile.
It's important for me to smile. From my point of view it often seems as if the whole world is against me, that no matter what I do the end results more than likely will be negative for me, that my dreams are just that, dreams and nothing more. If I fed on this mentality daily I would have probably jumped off the highest bridge I could find into traffic. That's why I smile, because it makes me feel like I can do anything no matter how bad it is, it makes me feel like I don't have to give anyone any reason to make assumptions, it makes me feel like I am spreading a cheer that is so lacking these days almost everywhere.
A smile is a powerful thing, enough to keep me sane, to keep me in a good mood, to make me feel like no matter what I am still in control. It may not solve my problems, but it sure makes them feel less of a pain. I can't guarantee I will always be smiling, but I can promise that I will try my best to do it as much as possible.
That's why I updated my profile picture to show me smiling.
