Smile Big & Be Grateful {Words for my Wednesday}

When you are grateful, you are happier. It happens. When you are happy, you smile. And smiles can brighten the day for others, so smile BIG! Big smiles often lead to laughter, and laughter is the ultimate sound of happiness. It's also contagious. 


I first saw the image below on twitter, and I love it. Absolutely love it. I think I even replied to the particular tweet, just to say that I love it. In face, I love it so much that I then found it on Pinterest and repinned it! Then I decided I just had to share it here for this week. Gotta love social media, right?!?


Lots of the time we are harder on ourselves than anyone else. I know it's a true statement for me. What about you? So remember to be nice to yourself. Be thankful that you are who you are. There's no one else exactly like you, and it's okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are how we learn. It's okay to give yourself a pat on the back too, so try to do it every day.

Do you smile big and laugh often? 
Are you harder on yourself than others?
Smile big today for YOU. And be nice to YOU. 

And if you haven't already joined us for Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop, head on over. We're partying like it's #99 (because it is). You'll find lots of great recipes, crafts and DIY projects. Don't be shy!

I love these! I'm definitely working on smiling more often and being kinder to myself and it makes a world of a difference. I think with the fast paced lives most of us lead we tend to leave ourselves for last. Thanks for the reminded to take a step back and smile :)

I usually have to remind myself not to smile as big in photographs, because my gums show too much. But I do love the advice!

I try not to be too hard on myself but this can be a challenge. Smiling and counting your blessings definitely help!
