    Hope you're all well.

    I was looking for quotes about smiling and somehow ended up at this video -

    life ticking away - YouTube

    The quotes I found were as follows:

    "If a child smiles, if an adult smiles, that is very important. If in our daily lives we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. If we really know how to live, what better way to start the day than with a smile? Our smile affirms our awareness and determination to live in peace and joy. The source of a true smile is an awakened mind."

    Thich Nhat Hanh

    "It’s obvious that smiling shows you are happy but it is, admittedly, a bit strange to realize that the act of smiling can itself make you happy. It’s a perfect illustration of just how close the links are between the mind and body. Smiling is infectious, too. When you see someone grin, you almost invariably smile back. You can’t help it. Think about that for a moment: just the act of smiling can make you happy (even if it’s forced); and if you smile, others will smile back at you, reinforcing your own happiness. It’s a virtuous circle."

    Mark Williams, Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan

    "Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other-- it doesn't matter who it is--and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other."

    Mother Teresa

    Enjoy your day!

    This life is fleeting no doubt.

    Two roads to take, an eternal perspective, or a temporal perspective.

    For the temporals, this life is the grande show. So they make peace with dying, and only search the solveable.

    For eternals, they have a lot more patience, and do not rest in temporalities. This is not their Grande show.
