A Few Reasons You Should Smile Often

Smile because you woke up this morning, you are alive and you have another day to take on the world.

Smile because you are able to talk, see, hear and feel while some people cannot enjoy these simple life pleasures. 

Smile because you have clean water to drink and bathe, you can take as many showers as you want every day and drink as much water as you want to. 

Smile because you have a roof over your head, clothes on your back and a lot more in your closet.

Smile because you can see the sunshine in all its glory and also see it set at the end of the day.

Smile because you have food to eat. You don’t have to beg for hours for $5 to buy a sandwich and a drink. You can simply walk into a Starbucks and order anything you want.

Smile because you know someone loves you and is always there when you need them.

Smile because you have a full set of teeth to show off. 

Smile because you know where you’re going.

Smile because you know you are blessed. 

Smile because some people have it worse.

Smile because it’s the prettiest thing you will ever wear.
