CHEESE…Everything Is Better With CHEESE On Top

CHEESE…Everything Is Better With CHEESE On Top

-‘A SMILE…Is it the Question or the Answer?’

                                    -Lee Smith

CHEESE…Who doesn’t LOVE CHEESE? All over a Pizza, on top of a ‘Mouth-Watering Burger,’ covering Eggs in the Morning, topping Toast, paired with Wine and Crusty Breads, entangled within Macaroni, as a Pool for foods to take a Swim in while Fondue Dipping or as a simple Snack. I don’t know of too many People that don’t LOVE CHEESE. It’s just So Good and in most cases ‘Good for You!’

As I ponder CHEESE and My LOVE for its ‘Pungent, Tart, Creamy, Sweetness’ it brings to Mind the idea of CHEESE in another sense…

You know that Image that We see upon People’s faces when they are Happy, Joyful, Elated, ‘Feeling Good…’ You know? When they are posing for a Picture, they Flash that part of them that Opens up their Hearts…You know, You hear it ALL of the time right before the Camera’s button is pushed or the Flash burst to capture the image, ‘Say…CHEESE!’ Yes…That’s it…The SMILE! Or as We so often refer to it, ‘CHEESING!’

A SMILE…Now, that is the CHEESE that I LOVE to see on Top more than any other type of CHEESE!

Me, Myself… I am a Naturally Smiling Person and I LOVE flashing a Smile at everyone that I meet because it shows that I am open to receiving Smiles and it also shows that I am not an Angry or Unhappy Person. As I go about Life and the Day to Day activities, meeting People in passing along the way, I notice that so many People wear Frowns or Perpetual ‘Mean Mugs’ on their faces instead of SMILES, moving Me to ask the question, ‘Is Life that Bad?’ ‘Is there something that these People know that I don’t that causes them to Frown instead of SMILE?’ ‘Am I Crazy for My LOVE of SMILING and wearing a SMILE?’ ‘Should I wear a Frown too?’ ‘What’s wrong with the World today?’ ‘Why are We so Angry?’ ‘Why won’t You SMILE?’

I guess I just don’t understand why People don’t want to project the BETTER side of themselves by SMILING or wearing a Happy or more Welcoming look upon their faces. We walk around in today’s Society as if We are Angry at everyone and everything, as if someone just told Us that things will never get any BETTER or as if We just Lost Our last Friend. Living this way makes it seem as if We are a Society of Unhappy individuals that are simply passing the Days away and not Enjoying the Moments that GOD gives Us. This alone should be reason to wear a SMILE instead of Frowning…

It used to be Proclaimed that ‘A SMILE is Contagious!’ If only that were TRUE today…

 

My Friend… My Reader….SMILE! Put some CHEESE on TOP!!! It’s so much BETTER to SMILE and allow Your face to Shine in the presence of others and have it say to them, ‘Hey! Life is Great! Here’s a SMILE for You! Enjoy it!’ and hopefully it will be as Contagious as the Flu, affecting Everyone for the BETTER!

‘I feel that a SMILE is the Answer to the Question…’

Nothing Outside of Us Makes Us Anything…We Already Are…

Nothing Outside of Us Makes Us Anything…We Already Are…

While watching television a few days ago and in conversation about all of the craziness continually going on in our World, images were projected upon the screen showing people in so-called third World countries that seemed to us that have ‘more,’ those individuals that don’t seem to be in the best positions or the best situations, seem to be so Happy and full of Joy. Always projecting Smiles and in Good-Spirits no matter what chaos was or is going on around them. The question was posed how do they do it? How do they continue to keep a Positive attitude in the face of chaos, disaster and so much destruction?  They simply ‘Choose to!’

Upon thinking about that for a moment it occurred to Me that those of Us with ‘so much,’ with so many things outside of Us defining who we are as individuals and as a people, we would not in any way understand the Joy these people feel or project in their situations. When you are an individual that does not allow your Happiness or Joy to be defined by things or circumstances around you, you are an individual that has the ability to be Happy and Joyous at ALL times. That is the difference between those of us that are Truly Happy and those of us that are only Happy when things seem to be the way that we want them to be. The latter type of Happiness is not Happiness at all. A sorry substitution for it…

We can actually learn a Great lesson from these people that seem to be less fortunate than we are. We can learn the lesson that the Happiness and Joy that we are searching outside of ourselves for is already there within us and that those things outside of us do not define us or bring us Happiness or Joy. We have to be Happy and filled with Joy before those things are given to us or before we attain those things. If we are not Happy or Joyous before we obtain those things we will only be Happy for a short period after getting them and we will find that those ‘THINGS’ outside of us do not bring Happiness and Joy at ALL, just a sorry, short-lived, Fictional substitute for it.

We need to make the decision to be Happy and Joyous right where we are, no matter what the situation looks like because waiting upon situations and circumstances to CHANGE for the better or waiting upon the acquiring of ‘things’ will not bring you Happiness or Joy, only appeasement that has a short Lifespan.

My friend…Are you Happy and Joyous right where you are…in your current situation…or are you waiting on things to materialize in your World before you are Happy and Joy-Filled? Choose to be Happy and Joyous NOW because those ‘things’ outside of you will not bring it to you, no matter what the World tries to get you to believe.

Like the quote says, ‘We are about as Happy as we Choose to be…’ Not, ‘We are as Happy as the things outside of Us choose to make Us…’

GOD Bless…My Friend!
