It is pleasant to see someone smile at you. It shows as an act of kindness, one that is friendly and inviting. A smile can mean a ‘hello’, ‘I see you’ or ‘you are so funny’. There are many positive things that a smile can mean 🙂
Not only can it be wonderful to see other people smile, it can also be good for you to smile too. Even if your day is not going well, smiling can help you feel better. It may not fix your problems but at least it can help you feel a bit better and then you can tackle the problem to find a solution ❤
Happiness is key to living a good life. To be happy we have to take action to achieve our goals. Each time we accomplish a goal, it can make us feel happier. A smile can help with happiness too. As when we smile it releases a chemical reaction in our brain that can lift ones mood, making them happier.
Some other benefits of smiling are that it can help build better relationships, lower blood pressure, lower stress and increase your lifespan. Each of these great benefits should make anyone want to smile more. Smiling does not cost you anything and makes you look more approachable to others which is a nice bonus 😀
Now I understand that smiling may not be your thing or maybe you are shy to smile more often. Just know that it is something that you can ease into and get better at each day. Just like a caterpillar, we can each go on a journey towards our goal of our future self and transform into the person we strive to be.
Caterpillars are funny little critters. They crawl around in search for food. Then once they find a tree that they like, the caterpillar will eat away at the leaves until they are ready to form a cocoon. It is interesting watching a caterpillar do this as they spin their cocoon while upside down. Once it has roughly been about 2 weeks, the cocoon will hatch and a beautiful butterfly will emerge.
We can become our own butterfly. Not only with smiling more but other areas of our life. All in baby steps and with time. If you are unsure of who it is that you want to become – to be the best version of yourself, try new things often and note down your thoughts in a daily journal. Doing this will give you the opportunity to reflect and have more of an understanding of who you want to be, and what you need to do to get there ❤
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a drawing of a beautiful blue caterpillar. Who is slightly standing up with a lovely smile and looks very proud. This caterpillar happily has self-love and is ready to become a butterfly. The ultimate best version of their-self.
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Know that life is not just about the destination. It is also about the journey. Enjoying little and big detours along the way. Have a nice day!
