Smile from within

Smile from within

Finally a time comes in your life when you feel like you can smile from within. 

You feel tired and at times stressed out.  You wonder where time gone and how are you going to complete all the things coming your way.  You wonder to yourself can you handle it all.  When will life settle down?

Then you take a moment.  Sit in a comfortable spot. Taking a couple of slow deeps breaths and you begin to relax. You begin to let go of the past and future.

You begin to smile gently, nothing too extreme, just the kind of smile that relaxes your face and makes you start to feel good inside. As your body begins to settle into the stillness, your mind begins to reflex on the blessings around you.  Images of the people who bring joy and love into your life have you taking another deep breath, almost as if it is a relief; a kind of sigh of happiness and contentment for their existence.

Then the stillness has completely taken over.  A hand has been gentle pressed against your heart holding you still. You begin to pray.  Thanking our Lord for all you have received.  You begin to feel all that was laid upon you, past and future has been lifted off.  The burden is no longer weighing you down.

Your body feels lighter.   A feeling of loving-kindness and delight is filling you from the inside out.  You know everything is going to be ok.  Your past is gone in the wind and your future is in God’s hands.

You are truly experiencing the smile from within.

Luv, luv,
