“Lighten up, just enjoy life, smile more, laugh more, and don’t get so worked up about things.” ~ Kenneth Branagh; Irish actor, director, producer, and screenwriter.
Scientists at the University of Cardiff in Wales say, “It would appear that the way we feel emotions isn’t just restricted to our brain–there are parts of our bodies that help and reinforce the feelings we’re having,” says Michael Lewis, a co-author of the study. “It’s like a feedback loop.”
When you smile then certain muscles trigger a chain reaction of other tiny muscles and chemicals throughout your body, they have great effect on the way you feel; thus, the way you feel makes you see life differently–i.e., if you feel sad, life is sad; if you feel happy, life is happy.
You create your own reality, you mold your perceptions, thus your behaviors, your opportunities.
Seems rather simple and unimportant sometimes, but the act of smiling is the most important expression of our soul. See, the soul, or our spiritual essence, is always trying to free itself from the bondage of human negativity or from the stressful ego; so, the soul is always looking for positive intentions, thought, actions to be manifested by our humanity which can embrace the purity of the soul, which is love and inner beauty.
But, quite often, the soul gets buried and stifled by and under ignorant and misguided thoughts and actions.
A simple smile then lights up the world because it changes the way we feel and thus experience events in the world. An honest smile also communicates trust and connection to the ones around us.
Remind yourself that to experience happiness and success in what you desire and do in life, you must start by taking little steps, and you begin by smiling every day even if things do not go as planned.
Smiling will remind you that you need to be brave enough to remain positive even in the not so pleasant situations.
