Just To Have A Grin On Your Face

The sweet little girl in the above photo will have to learn through living her life that we must find a way to adjust our life so we may carry a grin on our face every once in awhile....I am finding it necessary for my personal being to develop some what of a routine and keeping a rather clear agenda.... Knowing I do not like to obligate myself as I had done in the past for survival..... My mind and body seem to want to ease into a more gentle pace... Everyday chores of housework and preparing meals seem to be a plenty in making my inner efforts fall into place... I require time for myself to just do nothing if I desire... Just to peer out the window and watch the world that surrounds me seems to be rewarding...All this allows me to break my routine as desired to not limit growth...Learning to slow down is almost like the process of learning to walk all over again.... Taking the time to add blissful moments in our life's... and to be ever so grateful is a valued lesson to achieve.... When we learn to walk in this direction we become better and better at doing it... Just think of having a grin on your face from time to time for no reason at all... just because we have learned to walk free from anger,worry, and most of all negative thinking... We don't have to apologize to anyone for it.... don't have to gloat.... but just plain enjoy it.... And just keep smiling... we have to accept that there are going to be some awful things happen in life but it is a part of life itself..... This is where I am in my life ....... Positive thinking and understanding and taking the time to walk through it... The earlier we develop this in life the more we simplify our life's.... so hope you notice a smile on your face in the next coming days and weeks.....

You are so right. It doesn't get one anywhere to be a sourpuss. Although, I admit - that cold glare I have rears its ugly head a little too often these days.

p.s - I really thought my birds outside were causing quite a raucous till I realized it was your blog:):):)

I too find that staying calm in the face of antagonism is greatly to my benefit & DH!! If I am upset by some slight someone has given me he is too. I have found when the day is done does it really matter??? Nope......
I can't tell you how much I enjoy your post & your sage pearls of wisdom!!
Have a Wonderful Day!!
Love,
Marilyn

I agree completely with the sentiments of your post. Sometimes the simple act of pretending to be in a good mood, improves my mood. I do think the little girl is adorable just the way she is though, she reminds me of my own at that age.(and she just made me smile)

I applaud your perspective on life and I try to live in peace as much as possible. In this world we live in there will never be a perfect peace...that will come later, but we do need to back away from the things that can harm us and bring pain into our lives. My peace comes from talking it over with the Lord and knowing that in every situation I am never alone and in His perfect understanding is where I find my ultimate peace.

Keep Grinning and Bearing!!
