My big heart goes out to you

For all of my dear readers
I am so sorry for all of the people who have been through the devastation of Hurricane Sandy last week, and are still dealing with the aftermath of it.
I did see on the news a woman in Staten Island who lost almost everything, but she set up a table and was distributing food and items to people and she said it gave her such joy to do that, and help others, that it lessoned her pain. She had a beautiful smile on her face.
I have heard of people from Georgia to Texas who have come to our area in New York/New Jersey/CT, with food, and items and to lend a hand. WOW! Such compassion and love for others being shown. No matter what your circumstances, if you can give of your heart, a smile, a kind gesture, money , if you are able to, a hug, food, a warm place to stay, prayers, YOU will be able
to smile more.
Counting one’s blessings always helps one smile.
It’s a wake up call for all of us to be more kind and to help one another more.

World Smile Day

Today, October 5, 2012 is World Smile Day!
Please Join The Smile Revolution and give genuine smiles today and everyday!
Imagine a world where people accept each other’s differences, and love more instead of judge.
Less selfishness, less greed, more generosity, and kindness.
How can you, my dear readers, bless others today?
The world needs more innocence, and expressing more childlike qualities.
Children teach us so much if we will listen.
Sometimes we do need to end relationships that are damaging and the person doesn’t care that
they hurt you over and over. We need people around us who are supportive, loving and kind.
That will help you smile more, so you can give and receive many smiles.

Smile a WHILE

SMILE A WHILE AND WHILE YOU SMILE, ANOTHER SMILES- AND SOON THERE’S
MILES AND MILES OF SMILES AND LIFE’S WORTHWHILE BECAUSE YOU SMILED.

THANKS TO MARJORIE CHARLTON FOR SHARING THIS. SHE SAID THIS TO HER CHILDREN WHEN THEY WERE LITTLE TO CHEER THEM UP AND IT WORKED! GIVE IT A TRY NEXT TIME SOMEONE IS FILLED WITH GLOOM

The Value of a SMILE

 This is from a tiny book from 1925 by Wilbur D Nesbit
“The thing that goes the farthest toward making life worth while,
That costs the least, and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.
The smile that bubbles from the heart that loves its fellowmen( and women)
will drive away the clouds of gloom and coax the sun again.

It’s full of worth, and goodness, too with human kindess blent—
It’s worth a million dollars— and it doesn’t cost a cent.

There is no room for sadness where we see a cheery smile;
It always has the same good look—it’s never out of style—
It nerves us on to try again when failure makes us blue;
The dimples of encouragement are good for me and you.

It pays a higher interest, for it is merely lent—
It’s worth a million dollars—and it doesn’t cost a cent.

A smile comes easily enough,
a twinkle in the eye is natural — and does more good than
any long drawn sign!
It touches on the heartstrings till they quiver blithe and long,
And always leaves an echo that is very like a song—

So—smile away!
Folks understand what by a smile is meant;
It’s worth a million dollars—and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Be in JOY

This is from MorningMessages.com
“Joy is the elixir for all things. Bring more joy into your tasks. When you radiate a vibration of joy. however mild, there is a shift in response within your body that is reflected in the response of your reality.

It can be as easy as a smile on your face as you do one of these tasks. This will create a different message to your body and you will shift the usual stress responses to your work and busyness into a more conscious relaxed state of mind/heart.

Become aware of the stages or subtle frequencies of the emotional vibration you label joy.
There is ecstacy, rapture, bliss, jubilation, delight, happiness, cheer, gladness, and pleasure. Practice the different frequencies of joy.

Be delighted. Celebrate the small wonders all around you. Rejoice with your breath. Smile for no reason, just smile into the moment. Allow new face muscles to be discovered as you smile into your concerns and worries.

Find cause to laugh, giggle, or radiate cheerfulness, practice being light-hearted, carefree, and elated about the miracles in your life or the miracles of the moment. Be happy, be bright. rejoice and enjoy. Be in joy.

The skill of maintaining an attitude and frequency of joy is a most important skill. Imagine that you have a joy muscle and you have not exercised it enough. You need to stretch it, expand it and fully express it. Allow joy in any form to proceed you.

Smile as you answer the phone, make a meal, and pay your bills. Smile into the mirror each time you look at your image, smile at your reflection. Smile as you are falling asleep at night. Practice smiling even while you are thinking.

Place your awareness in your heart when you smile. This is a powerful alchemical practice. The simple act of smiling from your heart will attract more joy, bliss, and happiness into your life.

Your joy will be like a healing balm to yourself and others in your life. Practice your joy in all its wonderous forms.”

Neale Donald Walsch

New York Times best selling author and speaker wrote “Conversations with God series and more. He was a guest on my Smile Revolution Radio Show twice. This is what he said:

“You need not be concerned about money. Be concerned instead, about JOY. How much JOY
are you experiencing in this moment? How much joy are you BRINGING to this moment? The joy you experience will be the joy you bring. If you are waiting for joy to be brought to you, you do not understand what you are doing here. And if you think that joy has anything to do with money, you really do not understand what you are doing here.
There is a person waiting Right NOW, right this minute for you to uplift them. Do that…and you will be rich. Really, I mean really. I am not making this up.”
 
Interesting, huh? We need a world of people being bringers of joy, not gloom, frowns and coldness. Yes, we all go through rough times, and its harder to smile, but sometimes I need YOU to smile at ME to remind me to smile. Remind me of joy, that is within all of us and is a gift from God ( Or whatever you call the Higher Power, the Divine, the Source etc).

POEM

When I had my Smile Revolution Radio Show on WKNY 1490 am Kingston, NY from 2006-2008, a listener sent me a plaque with this anonymous poem.
Their note said, ” Mindy, Even though this plaque is 29 years old, it’s proof, “The Smile” will always be “The Smile”. “A smile is just as good for what ails you as MOM’s chicken soup.”
Your show is very interesting. Welcome. I hope you find a spot for this poem in your show.
Love and smiles,
Sharon and Dennis

SMILE!
A smile is something nice to see,
It doesn’t cost a cent.

A smile is something all your own,
It never can be spent.

A smile is welcome anywhere,
It does away with frowns.

A smile is good for everyone,
To ease life’s ups
and downs.

A HUG ( it could also apply to a smile)

Anonymous poem

“It’s a wondrous thing what a hug can do
A hug can cheer you when you are blue.

A hug can say, “I love you so.
Or “gee. I hate to see you go.
A hug is “Welcome back again,” and
“Great to see you! Where’ve you been?”

A hug can soothe a small child’s pain
And bring about a rainbow after rain.

The hug! There’s been no doubt about it..
We scarcely could survive without it!

A hug delights and warms and charms,
It must be why God gave us arms.

Hugs are great for fathers and mothers,
Sweet for sisters, swell for brothers.

Kittens crave them. Puppies love them.
Heads of state are not above them.

A hug can break the language barrier.
Amd make your travels so much merrier.

No need to fret about your store of “em:
The more you give, the more there is of “em.

So stretch those arms without delay
And give someone a hug today!

Joel Osteen

Said in his book, “It’s Your Time”, “Scientists said that a friend’s happy face has a more positive influence that a $5,000 raise.”

He is a #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
