“Smile and the whole world smiles with you regardless of the reason behind the smile,” is a great way to cheer yourself up on those days when you see black clouds looming on the horizon, and the reason behind the smile is for you to decide if you’re going to share it with the people who are smiling because you are smiling.
Being honest, we all have stories from our past which make us smile but they are the stories we dare not share because other people just wouldn’t see the funny side of the story. We all have a sense of humour that only we and a few really good friends get, but they’re not always around, so we need to be able to cheer ourselves up.
You constantly hear people saying, “leave your past behind you,” but that isn’t always good advice; your past made you who you are today, and if you are proud of how you turned out, remembering the good things and accepting the rest can only be good for you.
“Remember: A smile a day keeps depression away.”
