The Smile Project

Introduction

“The Smile Project” is about focusing on the happy things in life and making the effort to remember and record them.

Life changes every day. Sometimes in good ways and sometimes – not so good ways. Some moments bring us happiness and some, sadness. I learned it a long time ago that you can’t always have happiness alone; life will throw a pile of sadness in front of you from time to time. Things will go wrong, people will leave and sometimes you will wonder who exactly is beside you. In those times, everything will become meaningless. Everything that once made you happy will fade away. Nothing will be able to make you laugh or feel like what you have is enough. You will start questioning, judging and analyzing everything.

But when that time comes, how do you get back up again and start seeing life differently? Differently from what you feel…

That is where the Smile Project comes in. The Smile Project is about focusing on the happy things in life and taking the time to remember and record them. It is a way to create a place in your heart for the hope lost in time. It is about lifting yourself up and realizing that things are way better than what you feel. So regardless of what your mind keeps telling you every single day, pick up your pen and start recording whatever it is that makes you smile every single day of your life. You deserve a life full of happiness, love and laughter. Here is my bouquet of smiles.
