Suffering from a lack of a smile is an ailment that is far too common. Even those people with big, deep hearts are still exposed to the troubles of life. However, because so many people have experienced suffering, humanity has developed a multitude of ways to overcome the weight of our emotions. There are time-tested ways of dealing with bad situations, and by working our way through our troubles, we can all find a smile on the other side of our hardships.
There’s Always Someone Better or Worse Off
The comedy of life is that our troubles could easily seem huge to one person and petty to another. Our successes and failures are ours alone. While this fact can sometimes generate an overwhelming sense of responsibility, it is also the source of our individuality and capability. The average person that’s having trouble feeling good is simply too connected to their thoughts. Taking a deep breath, relaxing the mind and choosing to move forward in a constructive way are crucial steps for breaking away from emotionally sticky negativity.
Nature Never Went Anywhere
Nature has an overwhelming power that no human being has ever quite matched. The roar of the ocean, the rush of the wind and the gleam of the sun are all far beyond what we as people are capable of creating with our hands and feet. It is in this fact that a relief is found; by recognizing that we are small, we reduce our desire to be larger than life. By tapping into the honesty of the world around us, we can clearly see that some aspects of life are simply out of our control. By recognizing our place in nature, we can let go of all of the false responsibilities that we weigh ourselves down with and simply become comfortable in our own skin. That comfort has been the source of countless smiles, and it will be the source of smiles to come for generations on end.
Positivity is Everywhere
Focus determines what a person sees in their lifetime. Every aspect of life that we experience is connected to what we have focused on. A person that focuses on sports welcomes more sports into their life, and sports can be substituted with a variety of different topics and subjects. Many people that lost their smile are simply focusing on things that make them unhappy. However, there’s always a cute puppy discovering the world. There’s always a sweet old woman baking a pie, and there’s always a person making a difference. There are addicts that walk themselves into rehab, kids that talk to counselors and overweight people that sign up for weight loss camp each and every day. Positivity is abundantly available in quantities immeasurable, and to find it and absorb its emotional power, we simply need to take a few moments to focus on it. And that’s how smiles are formed.
