Smile....

Smile though your heart is aching.....

I do love that song. I sing it to the baby and it settles her.

My current challenge is to smile as much as I can without looking like a crazy person. Smiling is not my natural facial position so it is a challenge indeed. Yesterday I managed to smile at two strangers on my travels, I know, I know, two is not that many but it is surprisingly hard to make eye contact with people here in my part of London. The amount of people that avert eye contact is amazing, me included.

There was this one person that I tried so hard to smile at, but I just couldn't, I had to look away. Today I will try to smile at 2, maybe 3 people and hope that my smile is infectious and they pass on the smile to other people.

That is so cool, you can do it. In my country you can encounter those kinds of people everywhere who smiles at you... but as I grow... maybe it defends on what area are you in.. LOL! If you go to the train station in the early morning specially in rush a hour... you can never see one smiling maybe 1 or 2... hahahaha because they were all irritated on coming to work while being squeezed inside the jam packed train. Heheheheh... And irritated of the selfish girls who always flip their long hair and hurts the eyes of so many. Without so much discipline not only one but three or four will grab that hair heheheh.

I think that it's a really good idea to try and keep smiling. Even if when you're feeling low, it ca certainly help.
