Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 125


“Let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.” – Connor Franta

What a beautiful quote Spidey found to ponder upon today!

It’s amazing what a simple smile can do.

A random smile from even a stranger can light up a dark moment for you.

To be greeted with a smile makes for a more positive start to each day.

I smile.


It gets commented on a lot too.

I am known for my positivity wherever I go.

When I was at university, I was described as ” That smiley, curly haired girl from Birmingham.”

One of my previous employers said to me that it was a pleasure to have me around as he could guarantee a smile whenever he saw me.

I’m not talking about sneers or sarcastic smiles, or cheesy grins, just genuine smiles.

And I smile pretty much all the time. It’s just me. It makes me who I am. It makes me feel happier in myself, and makes me look at all situations with a more positive eye.

Of course, there are times smiles are not appropriate, and I know that too.

You won’t find me grinning inanely at a funeral or at some sad or bad news.

But otherwise, it is there, more or less permanently.

Of course, there are always those who can’t stand a happy face! (Why ever not? Surely it’s good to smile!)

But I refuse to allow them to drag me down to their miserable depths!

Don’t they know how many facial muscles I am exercising every time I smile?! It’s my daily workout!

Have a Smiley, happy Sunday Peeps!

    I heard someone say once that a smile is a gift you can give to anyone, anytime, without it costing you a cent. And as it’s said in How to Win Friends and Influence People, if you want people to smile at you, just smile at them! It’s hard not to reciprocate.

    You are such a happy person, Ritu. I also try to smile at people, it costs nothing and it spreads so much happiness. You and I would really get on I think.

    Whatever happens around us is simply happening around us. Only when we keep our inner smile we can deal with what happens around us. The problem is that many identify themselves with their circumstances and that can take the smile.
