Looking for a reason to smile

Some days you can not help but smile.
Some days you have to really look hard for a reason to smile.
Most days we are spoiled.
We expect life to be there for us rather than us being there making things happen.
We have to fight our whiney natures.

Here are some things that are easy to do that will always help bring a smile:
Speak looking up. You almost have to smile.
Chinese fire drill at lunch. Hard to do that without smiling.
If you are lucky enough to still have one or more parents, call them and tell them you love them.
Write a love note to your spouse. Fold it up like you used to back in Junior High. Slip it in somewhere that they will not notice it right away. Wait...imagine their smile...Enjoy their unexpected reaction.
Do something "just because" for you co-workers. Food, funny notes, happy voice mails...all good.
If your kids are grown, look at their baby pictures.
If your kids are babies, look at your baby pictures. Call your parents again.
Count your blessings. I mean really count them. You will likely find more things right in your life the more you look for them.
And last but not least, get creative.
Journal, doodle, paint, sculpt.
Throw yourself into the moment

Either alone or with a friend...you will enjoy finding new aspects of yourself in your creations.
