Smiling Into the New Year

by | Jan 11, 2024 | Inspirational

What made you smile as the year began?

Was it the memories that popped up on your Facebook Year-In-Review? Was it a crazy YouTube, TikTok, or Instagram video? Maybe it was one of the gifts you received during the holidays? Did you end the year with a great getaway or a super party that made you smile then and through the next day? Did you experience the joy of a new or young child in your life?

As we begin a new year, we often think of resolutions, plans, or hopes. At the top of so many lists is “exercise more.”  Is that frequently one of your resolutions? Let’s try something new this year. Shall we make a plan to exercise our facial muscles more?

Let’s move our mouths with smiles and laughter. Let’s stretch and contract our lips into kisses and compliments. Let’s put sparkles and crinkles in our eyes and forget the wrinkles. Let’s smack our lips with new or favorite tastes. Let’s wiggle our noses as we identify new aromas of foods and perfumes. Let’s go smiling into 2024 and make it a Happy New Year!
