Our days often follow the direction the corners of our mouth decide to take.
We can smile or we can frown. We can appreciate what we do have or be miserable by focusing on what we don’t.
When negative or unexpected events occur, we can meet them with fear and anger or peace and acceptance. We can decide to find the lessons or be weighed down by regret.
Today, don’t allow your fears, worries, or stresses to be the rulers of your day. Take a moment right now to just step back from everything, breathe, and smile.
Decide that no matter what happens today you’ll look for the positives in the world around you. That you’ll notice and express gratitude for the life and luxuries you currently do enjoy.
Because it’s so easy to get lost focusing on all those things that might be missing in your life; things about yourself that maybe you wish were different or events that you had hoped would have turned out another way. A dream that hasn’t yet come to pass or longing for that item you don’t possess.
Today, find that sense of peace and acceptance for the current state of your life. Start your day off right with a big smile and allow the day to follow the corners of your mouth.
