It really does make you happier.
Not every day is perfect or full of sunshine.
I’ve found though that some of the best days are days you had to fight for the sunshine – to create the sunshine yourself from your most inner being (deep, I know).
The truth is, the simple act of smiling helps with happiness, no matter what kind of day you’ve had.
This doesn’t mean “fake it to make it,” because I’m not sure if I believe in that (although I really have faked it to make it to a certain point); it doesn’t mean you’re not authentic if you smile when you’re unhappy; but when you do it enough, it actually can bring you out of that bad place you may be in.
that makes someone else’s day who may be in a worse place than you?
Now that’s worth smiling in itself!
