The thing called… ‘SMILE’

What makes me smile today? 🙂

———- ❤

As I was wondering what to write for this week’s article, I decided to choose “SMILE” as my topic. 🙂

One reason: As I woke up from my siesta sleep, I heard these artists singing a song on how to smile despite goodbyes. And so it goes….

I would like to make this article simple as possible. I’ve asked myself this afternoon what makes me smile today. The answer: I had a wonderful start of the day spending time with my mother while we go to the public market. Simple as it is. That makes me  smile, really. 🙂

There are a lot of reasons why people smile despite odds.

1.  Good news

2. Promotion

3. Wonderful time with special someone/love ones

4. Waking up again

5. Others

Whenever I hear the word “smile”, one person I always remember is my bestfriend, Princess. She loves the term and it was her favorite word really. SMILE. Five letters with great meaning. For me SMILE stands for:

S-uperb time you can give with your love ones

M-aking people around you happy

I-nterests in simple things. (Happiness can be found in simple things)

L-ove yourself while loving the people around you

E-mbrace change and appreciate life 🙂

Anyways, the real reason I’ve come up with this article is that I’ve remember the song “Smile” by Uncle Kracker.

You make me smile like the sunFall outta bed 
Sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head 
Spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night

You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold 
buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh, you make me smile

And my favorite line in the said song is….

Don´t know how I lived without you
‘Cuz every time that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile

It was a very special song to me because everytime I feel lonely or I had this bad day, I love to hear this song. It makes me think that there are silver linings despite the blues. Life is beautiful if we appreciate it. By being contented, we can stay happy.

There are a lot of reason to smile. And for me, one of the best reasons I want to  smile is because of you. Thank you for making me smile eventhough we often argue. Thank you for making me smile eventhough I tease you. Thank you for making me smile because with you, I am complete. Most especially, thank you for making me smile because you love me for who I am. 🙂
