Does your smile hide…
~ tears that are trying to push through?
~ yawns of exhaustion?
~ a broken heart?
~ a worn spirit?
~ mommy/daddy guilt?
~ caregiver PTSD?
~ monkey mind?
Has your smile become like a costume?
Do you practice wearing it every day?
Is it part of your armor?
Do you realize your smile…
~ comes from your inner strength?
~ comes from your gratitude?
~ comes from your joy in simple things?
~ comes from your faith?
~ is contagious?
~ touches others?
~ is the shortest distance between two people?
~ is an olive branch?
~ has power?
~ can elevate your mood?
~ can change your day and someone else’s?
Your smile allows your light to shine.
Sharing your smile with the world, even on your hardest day, is a light the world needs.
Your smile is your best asset and is always with you.
Your smile doesn’t have to be a costume, something you practice or a piece of armor. A smile doesn’t make all the stuff you carry go away, but it is something no one can take from you and something you have a choice of using or not.
