Go On Smile - You Know You Want To!

I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful. - Author Unknown 


Next time you are feeling down, try smiling! Smiles don't just brighten up others!  Research has shown they make you feel better too.  


They make you feel better and they boost your immune system. So if you want to lose those winter blues and you don't want to catch that cold, smile your way through the day!  Smiling does not just make you look less stressed, it makes you feel less stressed too! It actually seems to lower your blood pressure! 


The muscles you use seem to make your face look younger.  A smiles makes anyone look more approachable.  Smiles are contagious - most people will smile back! 


So go on, make someone's day with a smile.


I started with a quote so I'll finish with one too!  No one knows who wrote this.  It is just someone's anonymous gift to the world.  And whoever you are - thank you!


"The Value of a Smile


It costs nothing, but creates much good. It enriches those who receive it without impoverishing those who give it away. It happens in a flash but the memory of it can last forever. No one is so rich that he can get along without it. No one is too poor to feel rich when receiving it. It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friends. It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and nature's best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen for it is something of no earthly good to anybody until it is given away willingly."

It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario.
