Can you smile?

Can you smile for the rest of your life?
Or at least for a month? A day? An hour?
Can you smile for just one minute? Thirty seconds?
Smile even when you don’t feel like it?
Smile to your pains, sadness, and loneliness?
To your illness, broken heart, and fears?
Can you smile to a complete stranger?
Would you smile just to see what may transpire?
Smile even when you feel like nothing is going to happen?

Can you respond every time you are asked how are you?
with (take your pick,) wonderful, beautiful, awesome?
Can you do this for one hour, one day, one month?
Can you retain this approach for the rest of your life?
Can you adopt such an attitude even when it is not how you currently feel?

It sounds super challenging;
maybe like running a marathon or climbing Mount Everest.
But in reality, once we dare giving it a try,
it is not as difficult as it may seem at first glance.
Yes, we may occasionally steer off the path.
All we need to do is refocus and get back on track.

Wishing us all an incredible journey.
