The best medicine for healing the emotional
and spiritual “insult” of our current pandemic
When I smile, I’m a better person.
I know that I am better than what I commonly offer to the world.
There is so much more of me that I find so difficult to show.
My light has never really burned as bright as it could.
Smiling gives me a stage upon which I can better express the best of me.
Smiling offers a new frame for me that accents all that’s good, and right, and bright, and beautiful in me.
My smile showcases the best qualities that reside in me and which I seldom bring to the surface.
Smiling gives me entrée into the hearts and minds of others, a pathway to fulfillment and purpose that has escaped me for far too long.
A smile is the light
in the window of your face
that tells people you’re at home.
