Chapter 7, Page 1, Book 20

The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.

Mark Twain

July 1st- I’ve got nothing to do today but smile.

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Life always has its ups and downs.  Nevertheless less,  its not easy seeing someone we care about with a frown.  We may not be able to cheer them up with an all expense paid vacation but it is as simple as hugging someone to truly relieve stress and make another feel a lot better.  Hugging is a great stress reliever for both parties and is very helpful when there are no words.

Hugs and smiles are a sure way to brighten anyones day.  They are gifts you can give without making yourself any poorer.  So be generous with them.  Sometimes all people need is to know that people care. 

When we cheer someone up with a smile, they usually give one back and se we feel better in return.  Make someone happy and you will be happy too.

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up and never give up.

Smile and make some one happy and you'll be happy too

I think we need to paint smiles on our masks :) But so true for every minute we are angry or upset we miss a minute of happiness. Got to learn how to choose happy over anything else.

I love Betty's suggestion about painting smiles on our masks!
As you've pointed out, words pale in comparison to the feeling of getting and giving hugs.

That last (anonymous) quote is golden!

I enjoyed the post, but especially the first graphic.
Funny how a smile lights up the face and life too.

I've found that I can still smile with my eyes, even with my mask on, and still recognize my friends. Nothing stops a smile.
