It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen

Basically, I am a happy person.
I don't walk around grinning like an idiot but I have a smile handy when needed.
You could say that I have a ready smile.
If I see a baby, I smile.
If I see the very old woman with the out-of-it's-mind-puppy on a leash, I smile, I smile at the produce boys, I smile at the lady in the bakery, I smile at people who smile at me and especially those who smile at Pup.
I smile at the car that actually stops and let's us cross the street and sometimes I smile at the Porters who all say Buen dia and smile at me.

So I think I have the Smile thing covered.
How about you ?

Hello Candice:
What an excellent philosophy for life and one which we should all try to adopt. After all, one catches more flies with honey than one does with vinegar.

I have to do a close-mouthed smile for the duration of the braces. I'm sure it looks awkward.

I still recall your beautiful smile ... and yes, no matter what life throws at one's life... the fact that we are alive, breathing and walking is reason enough to smile.... xo HHL

Gracias, Anony ... besitos !
Karena, Yes ! the other day the Pup had me laughing as we were walking down the street and I noticed how many people were smiling too .. of course, I walk with a furry clown most days so that might not count :)
