    Just tried to frown, and it was rather difficult. LOL

      Aha! Marie, you feel me. It seems to take so much more effort! At least I know I’ll catch you smiling more often than not :-)

    You smiled at me with your words and I am smiling back. Well said and a great reminder. :)

    Well, now I can see why the universe nudged me toward this post tonight, Kesha. And the universe rarely steers me wrong. ;)

    I just wormed my way out of the most miserable, congested, bumper-to-bumper Friday night traffic struggling to make it home after a long day on the job.

    Believe me, there was a whole lot of frowning going on on the highway!

    No wonder my facial muscles are so sore.

    But now that I’ve read your post …

    I’m wearing a smile (and my cheeks don’t hurt anymore). :)

      Yes, the Universe knows EXACTLY what it’s doing Mel ;-)

      I’m not a fan of traffic either (you should see some of the things I do to try to avoid a lot of idiots, oops I mean people, on the roads!)

      When it’s unavoidable, here’s one thing I do (since I can be impatient) – I look in the rearview mirror and make faces at myself and you know that will automatically get me smiling and laughing LOL (yeah, I’m silly like that!)

      Or find a way to amuse yourself. Or when you catch yourself frowning, hurry up and smile and see how long you can hold it. Trust me, that’s a good laugh waiting to happen too!

      The trick to all this is you gotta be kinda silly and since we’re sisters and lovingly connected, I’m sure you’re right up there on the silliness meter with me ;-)

        I’m definitely dancing the polka with ya right up there on the silliness meter. LOL!!

        Great tips for dealing with the worst traffic in the U.S.– Thanks. ;)

        Have an amazing weekend!

    Hi Kesha,

    Thanks for your words of wisdom and sharing. We never know how our actions can truly affect others.

      Exactly Nik and since we never know how our words will affect others, we may as well make them positive right?! :-)

      Muchas gracias for commenting!

    I’m so glad she told you thank you for smiling at her Kesha. Obviously a kind gesture was exactly what she needed.

    I’m sure you already know what I’m about to share. Oh yes, I’m one smiling fool girl. Not only do I smile at people but I’ll tell them “well hey there, how are you today?” Yep, the majority of them can’t help but come back with something and it’s obvious that so many people just need more of that in their lives.

    A smile can go a very long way. So, let’s go save the world shall we?

      I’m all for saving the world any way I can Adrienne! As I got older I started to learn how the “little” things such a smile or a kind word went a long way with people. I think people like you and I thrive on that too which is why we offer kind gestures to others all the time :-)

    Misery loves company and I run from people that don’t smile. I choose to be happy and smiling is something draws people to you. Adrienne Smith is one of those people and so many other bloggers I have met online. Not everyone has that trait, but it’s something we all should strive for. Smiling brings joy to others and it ultimately enriches your life in the process.

    Great post!

      Yes, Terri, I’ll pass along a virtual smile any day in lieu of a physical one when it’s not possible…as a matter of fact, here are some hugs, smooches, and smiles for you!

      Thanks for commenting!

    I’m 15 and I really can’t smile to save my life. I don’t show my teeth because my smile just looks worse mainly because I have a small mouth and my gums are quite high so all you see is teeth basically but they’re average size lol.
