Reason to smile...
Thinking about reasons to smile the first thing that comes to my mind is my grandchildren. I don't see them too much, but at least my daughters regularly put up pictures on FaceBook for me to see. Those pictures always make me smile.
I can't say that I'm a big ol' smiley face guy, but I try to maintain a pleasant appearance as much as I can. If I encounter someone I'll try to appear as friendly as I can be so I guess I'm probably kind of smiling. Meeting up with people should be a good reason to smile unless it's someone that I am not happy to see.
There are times when my wife or someone else will think I'm mad or upset, but it's usually because I'm just lost in thought or concerned about something. If I'm thinking happy thoughts I'll probably be smiling and sometimes even laughing to myself. I try to be careful about where I do this though as in the wrong place with the wrong people, smiling to oneself might make them think you're making fun of them or something like that. In those cases you'd better be prepared to come up with something to give them a reason to smile too.
Are you a naturally smiley type of person? Have you ever made someone angry because you were smiling or laughing to yourself? What evokes a smile from you?
