There are so many reasons why I’m smiling. It can sometimes mean that I’m happy and sometimes, I really need to smile. I do like smiling. It’s just sad that some people misunderstand it. And blames me that I’m selfish.
All I can say is this. There are times that I really do have a bad day. And there are times that sponsor packages came at my mailbox (I didn’t buy these for myself!) for me to do a product review. To be honest, they make my day and I enjoyed using their products and so I smile. There are times that I’m doing a fun activity with my kids like exercising, picking strawberries and cherries and my kids are taking pictures of me. I want to smile. And last but not the least, I am inspired of what St. Therese of Liseux saying about smiling that goes like this, “Miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice, here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word; always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.” And here’s another one, “A word or a smile is often enough to put fresh life in a despondent soul.” So if you see me smiling, I hope you won’t misunderstand. And I encourage you to smile too!
