'Today, I choose to smile'

Today, I choose to smile At the things that don’t make sense Maybe they will stop me from speculating Maybe it will distract me from my worrying thoughts My smile might just make you smile too Imagine the possibilities If we can remember to smile at the things We can’t change If we take the time and deal with things as they happen Instead of wasting time on tomorrow’s questions I sometimes catch myself in a trapped space Things are not always in our control Irrespective the stress attached to it - It will not alter tomorrow Until tomorrow starts Today, I choose to smile At the things that don’t make sense Who knows about tomorrow? Maybe the things I am speculating About might not materialize Then I would have wasted today’s joy So today, I choose to smile

    A smile really can light up a room, it's quite contagious and a very beautiful thing! I try to smile as often as I can, people ask me how can I smile all the time, I tell them that life is grand, if you smile it make it bearable!, plus the bonus is that others will smiles back, that makes you feel good! And who doesn't want to feel good? I loved reading this delightful poem this morning! What a remarkable piece, such a tremendous poem, Great Work!!

    Yes! Do not allow your mind to rent space to those who make you sad or hurt you. Only allow the smiles. Wonderful!
