“Smile often in order to have more reasons to smile about.” – Princess Hye-myung, My Sassy Girl Korean Drama
It’s just another ordinary Sunday to ponder about life and its drama. So today, let me share with you, one of the catching quotes I read from a Korean drama I was watching lately.
You must have noticed by now that I seemed to be a bit partial with Korean dramas. What I particularly love from watching them are the moral values and teachings imparted in most stories especially the historical dramas.
So, the above quotation has not failed to enlighten me and inspire me for this week’s post.
The previous months had been quite challenging for me that there came a point where I thought there seemed to be no reason to smile about. I wake up in the morning and go about everything I was supposed to do for the day. I was on automatic mode. I work with a gloomy feeling, with my chest so heavy.
But then I realized, who am I punishing with this kind of attitude? The more I think seriously of my situation, the heavier my heart became. God saw me through those difficult times, so I chose to trust Him fully with everything. With that thought, that choked feeling, the heaviness in my heart lifted. I can smile again.
I decided, whenever things got too heavy, I just need to think of something to smile about to lift my spirit up again, and whenever the heaviness of the heart started, I sing or hum, at least.
Why let ourselves be shackled ny our worldy worries when there must be a lot to smile about? Miracles happen everyday, we just need to acknowledge it for it to change our life and make our day brighter.
A positive attitude is like a magnet. It pulls in positive energy that can repel negativeness away. Let us exude that positive energy and prevent darkness from prevailing. Smile as bright as the glaring sun in a hot summer day.
