    that said, "Smile, it makes people wonder what your up to" I always thought that button was funny. Why would you want to trick people into thinking you were happy, or devious? I am truly happy most of the time. There was a time, not all that long ago, where I was "faking" my...

    Did you know it takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile? I know, because yesterday was in a bad mood, and I guess I must have frowned too much because this morning I woke up with a torn groin muscle. Weird.

    I keep on smiling always ,

    anytime , no matter what. I don't know if that's a good thing because sometimes I smile even when I'm crying. Lol Anyway I hope that the people who see me smiling , smile as well and become a little bit happier.

    I smile a lot. Part of it is because I'm a bubbly, upbeat person; part of it is because smiling is one of my nervous reactions; and, part of it is because I like smiling and doing so makes me feel stronger. I may not be ecstatically happy all the time, but I'll find something to...

    I have faith you'll find your smile again.

    It may look a distance but it's closer then you think. I see it trying to break free every time I see your beautiful eyes light up with laughter. For now you just have to bare with seeing this face. It's determined to make that grin more permanent <3

    I try to smile as much as I can. I know that the people that see me everyday know that a lot of them are fake. I love to smile. I love to be happy. You just can't all the time when you know you are truly sad as ****. What can I say? I try.

    Cheshire Cheese

    I've always been known for my smile - be it a cheesy Cheshire cat grin, it's always genuine, and I wear it most of the time. When I'm not smiling, something is very wrong, and even coworkers who barely work with me take notice and comment.
