9 March 2010
I feel amazing today. I feel free! Free from drama. I feel like a whole new me and it feels great. I can’t explain exactly why but it is such a great feeling. I made some decisions today and I think it was one of the best things I have ever decided for myself. Yay for Smee!! OK there I go tooting my own horn.
I love smiles. I never realized how much I love smiles until some one showed me how amazing smiles were. Here are some interesting facts…
1. When someone smiles in is universally known as an expression of happiness which is recognized by almost all cultures.
2. There are over 18 different types of smiles that are used in a variety of social situations. For instance, people can use a smile to say a hello, and they can also use a different type of smile to show their understanding of a particular situation.
3. A frown uses more muscles to contract and expand then a smile does.
4. A smile is one of the most used human facial expressions. Smiles can use between 5 to all 53 muscles. (Now I know why my face hurts after I’ve been smiling all day)
5. Smiling releases endorphins and makes us feel better, even when you fake a smile you can feel better.
6. A person that smiles more is deemed to be more pleasant, sincere, attractive and more sociable then a non-smiling person.
7. We are born with the ability to smile; it is not something that we copy. For instance, even blind babies are able to smile.
8. Newborns tend to have more preference for a person with a smile then a person that is not smiling.
