Annie sang it best with "You're never fully dressed without a smile." Sounds ironic coming from a 10 year old orphan but she is still true to this day. And if little orphan Annie could find it within her orphan heart to muster up a smile I think the rest of us can do the same.
Ladies, no one likes a scowl. That is the single most hideous thing you can do to yourself (other than wearing a scrunchie in public or yellow teeth.) For the sake of everyone who happens to look at you during the day, please practice your most genuine smile. Not only is this a polite thing to do, it will make you instantly gorgeous. Working in retail I get the chance to spot both happy and unhappy campers and the most beautiful are those who are looking up with a smile on their face.
Does the sound of paralyzing the muscles in your face that tighten your skin sound appealing to you? If so continue to frown – and say "Hello, Botox!!" Bring it on Old Man Bitter Beer Face!!! …. but for those of you who would like to preserve your youth naturally, try smiling a little more often.
I find it easier to smile at people if I am constantly looking forward rather than at the ground. By looking ahead and smiling at those you pass, it gives you the illusion of feeling confident even if you're not.
These are recessionary times people, we’re all a little troubled! Don’t fret my pet! Instead of drowning your tears in a closet full of clothes that are not yet paid off try to save a little money by smiling!! It is certainly more cost effective than buying a new pair of shoes. Remember, shopping when upset will only give us a short dosage of happiness right before the buyer remorse kicks in. Smiles are something you can pass on and will instantaneously enhance your mood.
What do you think? Victoria Beckham is famous for her posh pout. I personally think she looks a little more cheerful when she's all smiles. For goodness sake woman, You are married to David Beckham -- what do you have to frown about!?!?
