24 Jul Why wearing a smiley face makes you smile
I know I know, the title of this post seems silly at first. But I promise you, if you really stop and think about it, it makes all the sense in the world. It’s the old idea that “you get what you give”!
Anybody ever tell you: Fake it till you make it? or, Practice makes perfect! The more you do something the easier it becomes. We all logically understand that, but it’s the putting it into action that trips us up.
Can you believe this button down shirt made me think of all this before I even put it on?! That’s totally the way my mind works. The clothes I fall in love with are the ones that evoke something in me. I am moved in some way, shape or form.
As I scrolled through the website and saw this top I found myself smiling, involuntarily. Usually clothing with smiley emojis makes me think: cheesy, corny, kid-ish, etc. However, I was also thinking: I used to reserve my smiles for times that were amazing and extraordinary! While waiting for these special moments, sometimes we become jaded, I know I have.
So, I’ve decided to change. I’m going to start smiling more. My mom always tells me too anyway.
I’ve been in moments where I was thinking heavily about crying, where my confidence was way low but I smiled instead. It obviously won’t ALWAYS apply but 9 out of 10 times it’ll help. So yes, I’m essentially saying smile when your face wants to do everything but smile. It’s up to you wether or not you want to use teeth(LOL).
I love my smiley face top and the thoughts it gave me. I hope this post makes you not only smile too:) But also look at the clothes you see differently.
