All-smiles :)

It’s one of those sturdiest tasks for me to come up  with a topic to write upon. If you are one of those religious followers of my blog (the count of which extends up to zero), you know what exactly I suffer from- ‘Lack of sane ideas’. All I had been doing since last few weeks is reading my amazing blogmates (you know who you are ;) ), awing (read: envying :P)  and appreciating their scribblings, deciding to post something very soon, and ending up posting poems that had been, till then enjoying their retirements. Since that made me feel too much out of work, I managed to write one fresh one, which came out pretty well! (At least my readers told me so…and I am deeply grateful to you people for that :) ). And now when I have had  enough of pretending to be busy, while I was actually having a lazy time with the ‘Holi’days around, I thought of writing my first post on a worldly topic, i.e. unlike my rantings about how wonderful my college is and so on (though I would surely come back with that :D).
Since I am devoid of thinking anything sane, I chose one thing I like the most-“SMILE”. So, my brave readers, here for you, is me with my utterly baseless (may be useful :) ) preaching on how beneficial stretching…of Lips can be. You might have read quite many or all the lines that follow, before, but please, for keeping my heart (I know you are that sweet), smile and read on… :)


Nothing can be as better as starting your day on a high, i.e. your lips curved highly upwards! I know that’s a cliché but yes it really helps, when you actually want the routine to follow to be energizing and far from monotonous. I know it can be hell difficult when you are amongst the one who are to be forced out of the bed, but none can help in that case (I am a victim too! Hehe. ). Anyway, by personal experience I can swear that smile can work much better than an air conditioner :D. Whatever be the setup you spend your day in, meeting and greeting people with a smile, always helps in keeping us sufficient inches away from those unnecessary worries we load ourselves with. It eases our perception of things, and thus ables us to carry out our jobs with an ease.
Another wonderful fact about this simple act is that smile is the best healer (What? Heard that before? Err…Ignore then!). One assuring smile from your side to the one who’s having a hard time with her emotions-giving you a much harder time, trying to console her- and everything may switch to the normal pace. And don’t you agree, even you feel your heart cooling down, when your beloved, who had been crying till now, flashes those charming dimples, when you try to melt her down with your silly antics? Why, SMILE does have that enchanting effect! How can you forget the thumping of your heart whenever you were graced with a beam from your crush? ;). And not just that, you also used to start making wild guesses for the reason behind that gesture. Didn’t you? :P

Well, if we are all-beaming today, then I would like to blabber a bit about the smiles I find best. My Mum’s, of course!...especially the one she gives on knowing that this good-for-nothing child of hers has done ‘something’ good, giving her a ‘little’ break from anxieties regarding me.
Next in line, is a baby’s smile. Ah! It’s super-cute, always! You can’t doubt  the authenticity it holds, so pure and calm that you can’t maintain the distance between your lips and the baby’s cheeks ^_^. They are lovely, yes.
Then I like that twinkling smile people give on being greeted with a “SURPRISE!!” or  when revealing a gift they just unwrapped. More so, if it’s exactly what they had been longing for. And yes, the best one. Just lend a hand to someone needy, help them and you’ll get the best reward. :)

While I have already talked so much about the purity a smile holds, let’s also have a take on fake, i.e. a fake smile. This act, when done to keep someone from getting hurt, or to hide that you are hurt, is somewhere near fine. But, when it’s evident and done intentionally  to let people know that you bother least about what they are saying, or doing, can be disastrous, to their emotions. It’s wise to think twice for such a malice! But yeah, if the person had been a constant pest in your life, trying every other sour trick to arrange your trip to hell, then better not pay heed to any such advice you come across, like the one I just gave. ;)

I guess I am out of stock now. All my gyaan has already been shared, and I swear (with fingers crossed) not to dread you with any similar posts again, if you ended up yawning at this one.

What are your findings on this topic? Do share!

Thank-you so very much for the read.
Have a good time ahead.
All-smiles :)

P.S.: Do give good comments, okay? I went through a lot in bringing this here, like, A LOT! (My system broke down and I almost lost the file and this darn thing just didn’t budge to behave! Gosh! That was horrible! :/)



  1. Aww so this was the post you spent an hour on! :P It's an hour well spent, I'd say :D Loved this. Made me smile like :D

    You're right when you say we should start our days with a smile. It really can make a difference! A well begun day usually goes on great. I absolutely adore babies' smiles too! Bestest!

    PS- You forgot how "you're not fully dressed until you wear a smile" ;)

  2. Haha! Yeah..this was the post. I was literally crying when the system hanged. :/

    Thanks for the sweet comment. Yup! Babies and their smiles..^_^

    Loved the PS part :D remember! :)

  3. Lack of sane ideas ?
    You should visit my blog sometimes.
    (Ok don't, You might lose that smile of yours. Yeah, that horrible. #NoKidding :P )

    Thanks for sharing your gyaan about the incredible smile. I don't know why but I started smiling from the second or the first para itself.

    Oh, I hope you managed to smile despite the troubles caused by your system.

    Keep Smiling.
    Take Care and keep writing. :)

    P.S. Your PS kept me grinning. Hope this is a good comment. :)

      I am happy I could make u smile. :)

  4. Whoa that was some post :)

    I was smiling all the while as I read it.. happens many times to me as well.. but then that is when perhaps we need to wear our thinking caps.

    May God never take away that smile from your sweet face: )

    Take care and keep smiling always

    1. :) A sweet comment! Thankyou!
      Glad I could bring smile to so many lovely faces. :)

  5. Somewhere I read quote that says like 'No matter how you look but with a smile you are the most beautiful person in world.' I feel it is true and why not to look lovely without having to spend a single penny. So keep smiling. :)

    1. Lovely quote!
      Agree with what u say!

      Keep smiling :)

  6. This is such a lovely and candidly written post Srishti! :D

    Smile se yaad aaya.."Agar crazy banke hum kisi ko smile dete kya achi baat hai ya buri?" Tell! ;)

    Keep Writing. Ideas are bound to drop in!

    1. So right! How did I forget that! Sometimes craziness helps in bringing out the best smiles. I do that often. :D

      Thankyou for the comment. :)

  7. Awwww this is such a sweet post! I smiled all through! :)

    Even I wrote a post on 'smile' on my blog,

    Aaaah I get the writer's block a lot nowadays, so totally understand. And God! The system actually hangs up in the most crucial moments, doesn't it!?

    I hope you're forever smiling!


    P.S: Is this a good comment?! :D

  8. It's much more than a good comment yaar! Thankyou! :)
    Read your post (obviously) and loved it! :D

    Ya the system! -_-

    You too keep smiling babes! :)

  9. Hey Srishti! I smiled throughout the post ^_^
    In the rush of life, we often do forget how impotant it is to smile. Smiling really does something awesome inside. Like when you're facing a difficulty and you smile a 'come what may' smile, the task seems so much more easier! And then there's the spreading smiles :)

    Here's me giving you a 100 watt smile ^____________________^ :D :D

    1. Hi again Srishti, I nominated you for an award! Congratulations! Check it out here-

    2. Thankyou so much for the nomination! :)))

  10. Hey, you have just been awarded a Liebster award!

    For details please check here:

  11. awesome post :)

  12. Nice one! Candid yet thoughtful! Its good to smile, you never know someone out there actually needed a smile. I also like to act crazy and that brings smile which I totally love :)
    Agree with your take on 'those' fake smiles.
    :-) :-) :-) Loads of smiles to you!
    Just to share, something I just remembered- There is a very good frnd of mine. She was a colleague and she would always say that Priya- I like your smile. Even today I would sometime send her random messages with only two smileys and most of time she says, it reaches just when she needs it most. ;-)

    1. Thank you very much Priyaa! :)
      Thanks for the comment.

      What you shared made me smile. :D
