5 Ways to Make Yourself #Smile & Blessings List

Okay, I don’t know about you but I have a tendency to get aggravated for no flipping reason.  For example, I have recently noticed I severely hate change.  To the point that my first reaction is to get mad.  Yeah, I know.  BaD!  So, I thought this week we’d do 5 ways to make ourselves smile.

1.  Do something totally ridiculous.  For example, if you see someone staring and they just can’t seem to stop, stick your tongue out at them.  It will make them stop staring, I SWEAR, and instead of getting annoyed you’ll laugh at yourself.

2.  Make silly faces in the mirror and compliment yourself.  If the sheer act of doing so doesn’t make you smile, then I challenge you to figure out how many faces and/or compliments it takes you to get there!  *I’d love to hear*

3.  Hug someone you love.  Not just a short, one handed hug, those are lame.  Hug someone and just allow yourself to take a minute to feel the emotions that come forth.  Works wonders when you do it on a regular basis!

4.  Do something nice for someone.  Whether it be helping an elderly person load their groceries or taking someone a baked goody for no reason, I assure you it will make you smile when you see how good it makes the recipient feel.

5.  Make a list of your blessings.  Not in your head, on paper.  Even if you aren’t in a positive place, force yourself to avoid sarcasm and write down your blessings.  You’ll smile at the reminder, so don’t throw it away when you are done!

Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
