smile it does a body good!

according to my recent prevention magazine;
seeing a loved one smile produces the same
brain waves as finding out you won $40,000

how awesome is this?
that a smile could produce
the same joy as winning 40k?

the article also said,
that those who smiled the most
lived an extra 7 years, on average!

so i am telling you that smiling
not only makes you feel better
but, also you live longer!
that is quite the incentive to smile
don't you think?

a few smile quotes just for you today-

A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.
Smiles are great investments: the more you collect, the better you feel.
A smile takes but a moment, but the memory of it lasts forever.
A friendly look, a kindly smile, one good act, and life’s worthwhile.
A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.

may you have a day
blessed with joy, laughter and 
smiles! :)

for those who have wondered
i am off today to get my stitches out. 
i have been getting along well,
it helps that my daughter is here to help
with housework and cooking! 
i will be starting physical therapy next week!

let's be shiny,

Lovely smiley post today melody-mae! Certainly, for me, smiles from my grandchildren are worth more to me than winning the lottery! Great post.

I'm smiling as I write this. I love feeling like I've just won 40K. I'll have to think of that more often. Thanks for seeing beautiful (and cheers to getting stitches removed!)

Hi Melody, I was very inspired by your post on monday so I quoted some of your words, with credit, in my post. Hope it will encourage more people, Thanks for the inspiration:-)

I totally agree with that Melody. If you smile to someone who have a problem, or is just lonely, it would definitely brighten their day.

Just caught up on a few of your posts! And I must say that I am leaving here with a huge smile that I am going out into the world to share!

I have a message to myself on my Home Page that says Smile. Smiling and staying positive make for a much happier person and life.

I love it when I'm smiled at, and I feel awesome when my loved ones do it, but I'd make a different face if I won $40,000. ;) But yeah for smiles!!
