The other day I had an epiphany of sorts.
Recently I've been going through quite a bit of heartache and chaos (see here) and I've been really struggling. Anyway I was at work the other day and this little voice inside said “life cannot take your smile”.
It's true - it can’t – life can take so much off me – family, children, jobs, friends, health and all that and I can’t stop it, I can’t control life but there is one thing I can control - my smile.
I choose whether or not to smile – nothing else and no one can control that.
Yes life sucks, yes life is hell and yes I will rant, rave, scream, cry, breakdown, say it isn't fair but I've decided that no matter what life throws at me I will not let it steal my smile.
I'll get through it all with a smile on my face.
