Do you ever smile too much? I know, right? You don’t think it’s possible. But, believe it or not (okay if you know me, you believe it!), I smile a lot. I have been told that I smile too much.
Is is Possible to Smile Too Much?
Nah, I say, not possible. Another thing that I’ve been told is, “You’re too happy.” Again, what the?! I mean; c’mon people, too happy?! Not possible.
Well, let me clarify. Perhaps if it were a funeral or other place where smiling is inappropriate, then, yes, the phrase would be fine.
Otherwise, nope. I will smile when I want, whenever I want to. Do you see those lines around my eyes? I’ve earned them, from the many great experiences I have had in my life.
Has there been drama too? Heck yes. And then some.
But, and I mean this, I do not choose to live in the dark moments of the past, although I do look back to learn from my mistakes. I focus on the now, the present day, and the smiles that I own. So, I smile.
Smiling to Get Through It
And, you know, sometimes a smile forms on my face because it motivates me too. As Teagan recently wrote, she creates inspiring messages to help motivate her as much as for the readers.
