what's your resting face?

Friday, August 16, 2013

I've just realized mine is kind of a frown - sheesh, I think of myself as a pretty positive person, but some of the stuff I deal with, work-wise, is serious, and sometimes I have to be serious with the kids, and, well, frown seems to be the default setting.
So today I have (since 7 am mind you, for an hour and a half so far:) been working on turning that frown into a smile every time I notice.
Been great for my mood, but also wow, I have lost count of the number of times I've had to 'reset'.
Here's hoping I can keep the resetting up, and change my default - I'm really not that grumpy folks!

    Oh my goodness! I have been thinking about the exact same thing this week as I walk my school's hallways. I smile to the kids when I see them, but what about the kids that notice me when I'm not watching? You are so right! I have so much to be thankful for and I really need to be smiling more! :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend and week!

    It is so cool that your son smiles all the time; so does my daughter! She smiles seconds after I wake her from a sound sleep, she smiles when she hears people she knows, she smiles watching golf (go figure), she smiles to indicate yes (she's non-verbal), she laughs when others laugh and makes everyone laugh even more. She makes me smile a lot too! I've been told in all her settings (school, Sunday school, and now adult day care) that she just lights up the place when she's there. There are a couple places where she 'eww' faces - the doctor's office and the hospital - but gosh, who can blame her! LOL I'll bet your sons hate the doctor's office too :)

    I do think that some people have naturally curved up lips. If you look at people at rest, you will see a variety. I am like you, frowning at rest (sigh). But, I love your idea! It made me smile! emoticon
