Everyone puts make up on their faces, be it on graduation day, performance night or just a simple date with that someone special. Putting on make up somehow enhances our features and thus, making us look more attractive. So that day when I was taking my usual bus ride to work, I noticed a lady putting on some powder on her face which led me to think; What is the best make up that anyone can put on?
My answer? Yes you should have guessed it by now: Smiles
Smiling should be one of the constant thing that everyone should have on their faces everyday. From young, I was led to believe that all bad things can go away once you put on the brightest smile. Although when I grew up, slowly I realize that it wasn’t true at all. My first break up broke me into many small tiny pieces and tears were uncontrollably rolling down my cheeks. It was the first real pain that I ever felt in my chest and then.. I tried to smile. The pain did not stop or rather, it grew. The pain was so terrible that I curled up on my bed and cried myself to sleep. It was like a
thousand million BILLION surprisingly sharp knifes stabbing me across my chest, but I just smiled like an idiot.
Through the years, I went through a lot of tough obstacles and heartbreaks and even if I break, I went down with a smile on my face. Those times were never easy for me and I am sure many of us out there have similar feelings about it; Life is never easy. Although I know that smiling does not make the pain go away, I slowly realized that it does not make bad things go away, it makes good things come to you. Every single time we think that we have hit rock bottom, things will start to pick up, they turn to be better. But do we realize that things turned out better because we start to see things in the brighter side?
To me, its always going to be smiles. I love how smiling can make someone’s day better. How a simple smile can make someone else smile back at you. How smiling can make someone feel better. People often forget that this is a powerful thing because I believe that it is a contagious emotion.
So why don’t we start everyday with the best make up of all. Begin everyday with the brightest of smiles. Believe me, it does make your day a better one and if it can help to light up someone else’s bad day, I wouldn’t mind to just smile at him/her and make their day a better one.
Smile people. They are a powerful weapon that everyone of us possess; the best make up anyone can put on their face.
