Pick One of the 19...

Dr. Watkins
These days it seems like it is not too hard to find a reason to frown if that is your goal, I would argue that there are MANY MORE reasons to smile and be thankful. A smile doesn't mean that everything is perfect, it simply means we choose to focus on the good in people and the good in life. Sometimes a "smile" is all someone needs to get through the day, so if you are thinking that you are just one person and can't make a difference in the world around you... think again.
Fun Facts about Smiling: smiling boosts your immune system, smiles relieve stress by releasing endorphins, it is easier to smile than frown, it takes 5 to 53 muscles to smile, babies are born with the ability to smile, there are 19 different types of smiles
