I write often about the power of a smile…the most affordable, best accessory for women over 50. You can be dressed in the most fabulous, expensive clothing, but if you scowl or frown in it, your countenance kills the entire look. Years ago, I started a Pinterest Board called NEVER FULLY DRESSED WITHOUT A SMILE. I wanted to honor those bloggers who were smiling, because at that time, so many were not.
Have you heard this quote before? “A smile is a face lift that is in everyone’s price range.” So true, it can make such a difference in our confidence, acceptance, and joy. I realize this is a difficult world with negative news messages and horrific entertainment media messages all around us. But, we have a choice to put it behind us and keep smiling. It can change your day when you smile though you may feel like crying (sounds like a song to me!) . I think the world around us is hungry for more smiles. I look for faces or scenes around me to make me smile every day.
The smiles of my family can turn on my smile in a moment. If it helps you, then post those smiles around your mirror or on your computer or phone and let them encourage you to keep on smiling.
Just remember….it costs nothing…confidence is attractive…and smiling is attractive!
Now here are some items that make me smile!
