When You’re Smiling


Our faces assume various expressions that indicate happiness, pleasure, favor, mockery, anger or deceit. A smile is a healthy expression characterized by turning up the corners of the mouth. Today is Power of a Smile Day

Note to self: SMILE today! Here is a haiku reminder:

Just Smile!

An upside down frown
sweet, charming, friendly, happy
a warm, pleasant smile.

A New Step on a New Day in a New Month

Great Times, Celebrating Life, Happiness, PositivityAhhhh…New Beginnings! All too often, people look at Mondays with anxiety-ridden consciousness and dread. Why? Because we have fallen victim into a lackluster trap which has been imposed on us by those who are caught in the ‘Dread Zone.’

If we are able to wake up to the gift of seeing a new day, a new month or a new year, whether it is sunny, rainy, hot or cold, we welcome this new opportunity to embrace a moment in time and be grateful because of it.

In this new month, as we see a new day, let us take a new step and make some great things happen. You can’t imagine how magical a day can be with just a little positive adjustment to our attitude as we embrace a new approach to something new!

Find beauty in this day, even if you’re stuck in a cubicle. Draw a happy face on a piece of paper and put it in front of you at your workstation. Periodically glance at it to remind yourself to smile! Who knows, your smile could rub off on the most persnickety person around you. Besides, it’s MAY DAY!!!

The Poetry of A Place Called Happy

Happiness, Inspirational Quote, Traveling

~ A Place Called Happy ~

Take me to that special place called happy
where love spreads like an airborne virus
and the wings of hate crumble like dried branches on a dead tree
a place where green pastures flourish and clean water flows freely

take me to that place where mourning turns into gladness
and death morphs into seeds of new life
where souls are not lost, but found in the arms of comfort
a place where peace truly surpasses all understanding

I wanna go to that place where there is freedom, not bondage
where the color of your skin does not determine your value
where reaching down means helping someone up
and weakness does not defeat, but strengthens

let me go to that place where thirst is quenched and hunger fed
as maternal instincts nurture and paternal instincts protect
a place where humanity is the guardian of God’s amazing handiwork
and purpose is grounded in the wisdom of the humble heart.
