“Who needs a smile?” (10.8.18)

Those feelings you most want, Patricia Bokowski, aren’t going to come from somewhere new, someone special, or something wonderful. 
They’re going to come from within, where they now wait for your permission to be released – often in terms of somewhere new, someone special, or something wonderful.

A simple smile.

How one simple smile can do so much good.

One little smile can do amazing things!

It can lift spirits.

It can say “hello”!

It can melt hearts.

It can take someone from a bad mood to a good mood.

It can say, I see you!

And yet.

I still see so many people not smiling.

Just look around next time you go out.

Whether you are at work (definitely few smiles at work).

Shopping at the mall (like, how can you not be smiling while shopping)?

Or at 7-11.  

As I have written about several times.

I am a big people watcher at 7-11.

And all I see so often are unhappy faces!

I think there is a huge misconception out there. 

That, in order to smile, and be happy, your life must be perfect!

As in, no problems!

And that everything is great! 

But that’s not the case! 

Here’s a little nugget of goodness for you!

Your smile can say; my life may not be perfect, but I’m still smiling!

They say the strongest people have the biggest smiles.

And I believe that to be true!

If I told you all the shiz I have been through in my life.

I would have you crying.


And yet.

I get complimented on my smile all the time!

The reason being.

Those who have experienced the biggest heartaches of life and survived, have come out the other side.

And therefore.

Are happy.

Not only that we survived.


Are happy AF that we came out stronger!

Ok, so I’m not bragging when I say, I am known for my beautiful smile.

Hey, when you got it, flaunt it, as they say!


And it is a genuine smile (there is a difference).

Someone just asked me the other day.

How is it I am always smiling?   

(Ok, fact check. I am NOT always smiling. When I am out and about, I do make sure I smile at people).

My response, ‘it just comes naturally.’ 

And it does. 

Call it my God-given gift. 

Honestly, I don’t know. 

What I do know, is my smile makes people happy!

And I love that. 

I love that I can make people happy just by smiling at them. 

I look at it as one of my superpowers!

If more people did it.

They would see what a huge turnaround they would have in their lives.


A simple smile 😉


A smile leads to happiness.

And we can all agree.

Pretty much everyone wants to be happy!

I’ve told this story before, and now I’m going to share it again…

It was a hot Summer day.

I had just left the gym and stopped at the local grocery story to pick up some cold cuts for dinner.

Because it was WAY too hot to cook.

The guy behind the counter was obviously having a bad day. 

It was written all over this face.

Which is when I decided I needed to do something to make this guy smile!


I gave him my order.

And the discussion went something like this:

Me: Half pound of American Cheese

Him: What kind of cheese?

Me: I don’t know, you tell me, you’re the expert

(he starts grinning)

Him: You are right! Ok, I got it!

And we went back and forth for about 5 minutes.

When my order was done.

I looked at him and said, ‘hey, I hope the rest of your day gets better’. 

And he looked at me and said, ‘it already has’.

That’s what a smile and a few nice words can do!

It costs nothing, and yet it is priceless!

Added benefit to smiling.

And I know you’ve heard it before;  ‘your smile is your best accessory’. 

And the reason for that is because it makes you so much more attractive.

(in more ways than one).

And does wonders for your body and soul well! 

That beautiful smile of yours helps you walk taller.

Adds to your self-confidence.

Makes you a magnet for love.

Opportunities/magic (yes, magic).

And adds to your charisma.

Who can’t resist a beautiful smile?

It’s what you call a win/win!

I know myself, even if I’m in a bad mood (happens sometimes).

I don’t even have to think about it.

Bad mood and all.

The minute I see someone.

I smile.

Call it what you want.


My personality.


I just like making other people smile 🙂
