“Cheer up, it might never happen,” is a phrase somebody said to me at the weekend; I didn’t realise until that moment that when I’m deep in thought I obviously look quite stern, or depressed, I’m not quite sure as I didn’t stop to question the well-wisher or to defend my thought process but I did think about it afterwards. I have read enough posts and articles to know that it requires a great deal less effort to smile than it does to frown, so from that moment onwards I decided that I’m going to create a smiling picture of myself inside my head deep in thought instead of just thinking about whatever happens to going through my mind. I have learned over the years to pay little attention to other people’s opinions but I don’t want to start frightening children by walking around with a dower expression on my face when it’s easier to walk around with a smile.
I think the following quote sums it up nicely;
“If you smile when nobody else is around, you’ll never be lonely.”
