*There is just too much hate & sadness going on in the world today so I’ve decided to do a 5-part T-pisode series about my own personal keys to happiness in this crazy thing we call life.
Smile. Das it. No matter what. Smile. That’s how I’m closing out this five-part “Keys To Happiness” T-pisode series. I smile a lot. Maybe too much. Most of the time I smile it’s because I’m up to something bad. I’m being a pain in the ass. I’m being a wiseass. Or I’m flirting with a beautiful woman. Or maybe I’m smiling at someone who is trying to talk shit about my Boston teams and they have NO chance in winning an argument with me. So I smile. And I also smile because I laugh a lot. My mother embedded into my brain at an early age when we were piss poor in East Boston that “No matter how bad things are, you have to find a way to laugh.” I smiled just now when I wrote that. Thanks again, Ma.
Smile. It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to get out of bed and head into the office on a beautiful day. Just do it and smile while you do it. It’ll make it easier, trust me. Smile. Even if you don’t want to go to the gym tonight after a long day at work. Put on your headphones, thump a good playlist and get your workout on while smiling. Even if you look crazy to everyone else in the gym for smiling! Smile. Fellas, go up to that pretty girl and talk to her. Smile the entire time you do it. It will up your confidence and maybe you might make her smile too. Smile. Ladies, we KNOW you hate it when a guy tells you to smile. We KNOW. But you have no idea what it is like for us guys to see a beautiful woman smile. Especially if we’re the reason you are smiling. Smile…smile…smile! Good or bad…Easy or tough…Sunshine or cloudy days…Just go about your day with a smile on your face and do what you can to make someone else smile almost every day. Yeah, I know it sounds corny. Yeah, I know it sounds easier said than done. But I am sick of seeing a world where things like “resting bitch face” is acceptable. Or where everyone seems to go on social media to just complain about everything in the world while ending their tirades with sad or angry face emojis. I’m not saying a smile will change the world. I’m not saying that holding the door open with a smile for a stranger will bring world peace. I am saying it costs you next to nothing to smile except a small chance that someone else may smile because of it.
Smile. All day long. Even if you’re sad. Even if you’re pissed. Think of a reason to smile. Someone or something that makes you smile. Look at a crazy meme on Instagram. Text your best friend. Think about that time you took that beautiful woman out and she told you that was the best date of her life. Because guess what? You’ll smile. Because at that moment you are happy. Smiling and happiness go hand in hand yo. The more smiles we see in the world then the more happiness we will have as well. It’s not that hard people. We just need more of it. Smile.
Next week…I get back to usual T-blawg business.
Until next time. Always take it there.
