Let's all start with PART 1!
What I'd like each to do is to take a few days and observe who you are when you smile. Specifically when it comes to who you are in common / everyday life routine environments, situations and relationships. Here are some questions to prompt your observation investigation:
"Is my smile natural and genuine - meaning, is who I am WITHIN myself in this moment really reflected in my smile?"
"Am I smiling because I am forced to?"
"Am I expressing appreciation, gratefulness, love or fun in my smile? What changes in my smile depending on what I am expressing?"
"Am I smiling at this person, even though I am spiteful, vengeful or angry with them inside myself in this moment?"
Utilise these questions to first start learning and finding out who you are within and as your OWN SMILE!
In my observations the last few days I learned something new about myself within my smile when it came to taking another's perception of me into consideration. I had a moment recently where I met someone new. In the moment of being introduced, I was in a space and experience within myself of being rushed, head busy with many other things, someone else calling me at the same time lol. I was in a whirlwind and equally so in a haste smiled, introduced myself and walked away. I mustered a smile as much as I could, yet - I realized I could have slowed down, taken a breath, been HERE with me and them in this NEW moment. Afterwards continuing with and getting to everything and everyone else NOT PRESENT in that moment. So, this is an interesting observation and will utilize this sharing in my redefining STEP 2 when showing the process of redefining WHO I AM as my SMILE.
Will give all another day to share some interesting moments of observation and reflection when it comes to your SMILE.
