Door: THE SMILE CURVE
You know what is highly contagious and causes no pain? THE SMILE!
Yes! That powerful energy that is able to cross in milliseconds from our inner universe, to our external universe. Once it touches the surface of our face, it turns into a smile. When this original curve is created, there is a positive domino effect, spreading hope both who feels it and those who watch it. Right there is where we become magicians, because without any kind of physical contact, we are able to pass our joy on to people. And we wondered if magic was real! Of course, it is! It is only a matter of being willing to do it. Ah! ... But unlike the majority of magic tricks, whose purpose is to hide the secret, the surprising thing about this is to reveal it to many people as possible.
Currently, in order to improve the quality of life, it has been insisted on the importance of exercising ourselves physically and have a balanced feeding diet. Well, then, smiling should be included in this healthy training. Because when we smile, we are exercising various muscles of our face, we nourish our brains, we reduce the level of stress, we strengthen our immune system; and, in addition, we foster a positive self-image. Better yet... There is no restriction to practice the exercise of smiling every day! However, I understand that life is not always pink color - believe me I know it-. And it is precisely for that reason that adding more sweetness to this smile will eliminate the bitterness.
In fact, a good way to do this would be by incorporating a transformational dictionary that is practical enough to refocus our experiences. For example, having ups and downs is synonymous with challenges to overcome, not with defeats to justify. That said, we start to drop the heavy burden of our complaints and faults, we take control of our decisions, and we are responsible for the level of happiness that we experience. Remember... "Your ace up your sleeve" is still in your hands, just please make sure you use your magic.
Now, it is possible to communicate the uniqueness of our being, when this expression of strength and joy does not depend on the perfection of the teeth or the number of them, but, rather, in the sincerity of the smile curve. Since its origin comes from an internal process, what we transmit when smiling is connected with this intimate brightness that goes beyond the soul. Someone I appreciate very much often asks me: "What made you smile today?" Whenever this person asks me that question... I immediately smile. This way I learned that we don't need any kind of excuse or rule, to decide to smile at life. Have you drawn your own smile today, yet?
Look at the Moon! Even she needs, every certain period of time, to smile at the dark night. Likewise; when sadness takes your hand, instead of cursing it, dare to conquer it through your smile. 😃
