Wellness Wednesday: Sending Smiles

I don't know if you've noticed, but there's a lot of happiness going around here. Or at least, I try to bring inspiration, motivation, and goodness to you all. Its no secret I firmly believe in smiles. 

You know when you see that person and there's just something about them? Something beautiful and special? It's the smile. 

When you're having an awful day, a sad month, or a challenging year- smile. I promise it will help. 

Studies show that even when you can't bring yourself to adorn your beautiful face with a smile, holding a pencil in your teeth while bringing your lips away so they do not touch the pencil (imitating the muscle structure when smiling) your "happiness level" increases. There's science and stuff. It's true. 

You might want to get used to the smiles for a little while. Why? Meet Seeds of Happiness. The story starts with a little lump of clay, that was turned in to a smile and given to a child who was very ill. Pretty soon, the smiles spread, as smiles tend to do. Now, the smiles are going to spread around here. Seeds of happiness sent a bag of smiles to Backpacks and Belly Button rings, and I'm working with a few bloggers to share stories of smiles with you. These bloggers have received a seed, and are going to come back with photos, stories, and tips. There's even an opportunity for you to get involved! I have one seed left, if you'd like to participate in this smile project, leave a comment below and one will be selected randomly. U.S. only, sorry!

The photo is a little sneak peek into my seed story. I believe you've met Dozer and Anthony? Those two can make me smile!

Will you send a smile?
