Never Stop Smiling

Ever since I started working out at my community gym this year I have become reacquainted with one of my neighbors who goes there.  He is so funny and always so friendly.  Everyone there knows him and he is always chatting to someone.  He always greets me with a big smile when he sees me.  

Well today when I was there he came up to me and asked, "Can you do me a favor?"  
I said, "Sure, what is it?" 
He replied, "Don't ever stop smiling.  No matter what happens to you or what people say.  Don't ever stop smiling."  
I laughed and agreed to that.

(Not to brag or anything, but all my life I have been complimented on my smile.  My hubby says I have a watermelon smile)  So my friend's comment made me smile, laugh and feel happy.

I continued on my workout and then as he was leaving he waved to me and said, "Don't forget, don't ever stop smiling."

He made my day.  He was just so funny and friendly.  And I needed that reminder.  Life has been a bit stressful of late, and regardless of what happens, I won't let it keep me from smiling and being happy. 


  1. Ahhh so nice! What a lovely thing to say to you and now you can carry it around with you forever, especially during the tough times. Keep on smiling!

  2. LOVE this story! It's great when strangers say things that make your day.
