There are so many reasons you should embrace who you are and smile. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff and dwell over the little struggles. If you just focus on the positive, better things will come your way. There is a lot to be said about self-fulfilling what we expect so let’s stand up and smile. Let’s wake up with a smile and help others to see how special they are. Here are my reasons you should embrace who you are:
1. Life is Too Short
What will each day bring and where will you be? Life is too short to dwell on your worries, stress, and duties. Take each day as it comes and live your life to the fullest. This is one of my reasons you should embrace who you are.
2. Good Health
If you are in good health, you should be thankful and smile. And if you have some health struggles, just think of all that you do have and smile. I have had many health issues in the past but I am now even more grateful for health. Health is wealth and the greatest prosperity! Make the most out of what you have and live your life satisfied with a smile!
3. Your Family
Be thankful for the way your parents raised you. Even if you did not agree with every decision they made, look at the way your parents have shaped you. Believe me, I can list many hardships with my parents raising me but they did great because it has made me who I am today. So thanks, Mom and Dad, you rock! You are the person you are today because of how your parents raised you. So raise a glass of water (not vodka, it would offend the parents), and smile!
4. Each Day
On days of sun, get out for a walk or run, and days of rain, smile and enjoy. Without rain we would not appreciate the sun and the crops would not grow. Enjoy each day and smile!
5. Your Friends
You may have friends that have helped you through thick and thin. Good friends do not judge you but accept you as a package with your perfections and imperfections. Give your friends a hug and be thankful you have them on your side. This is a really big reason that you should smile!
6. The Power to Create Your Destiny
By studying hard and achieving a degree, this is a stepping stone to your career. You have the power to create your own destiny so go for the gold and be who you want to be. It is all within you!
7. What Will Future Bring
Today is just another day, another chance, another opportunity for you to achieve what you dreamed of. You shape your future each day with the decisions that you make. So make plans for success so you will succeed and cherish each day.
Hope my reasons for you to be thankful and smile will make you think twice when you are stressing over the small stuff like the long line at the grocery store, the person hogging the treadmill at the gym, or the waitress that took so long to wait on you. Just try to let the little things go and enjoy what each day brings. What are your reasons to smile and be thankful? How often do you stop and say “thanks”?
