Just make me Smile!

You ever received a compliment unexpected in the midst of doing something and it just made your day. It slowed you down and brought you back to the center of what matters in life. You ever been showered with affection and love out of the blue and it just made you feel like you were the most highly favored person on the planet. You ever discovered something really fabulous about someone that you didn't know before and it made you warm all over. You ever witnessed someone receiving the help or aide they so desperately needed and their gratitude is seeping out of their pours.

The smile creeps up from your mind first and then lands on your face, and it feels good!!! It feels good to your muscles, it feels good in your chest and it feels good to anyone around you as well. Smiles are contagious as they should be.

If you want to spend time with me and have me in your life you need to make me smile more than not. I need to feel good about your company and vice versa. This is what many of the young girls today should have as a requirement for some of the young boys who prove to be way more disrespectful and crude than sweet, yet the young girls still embrace some of these young men who are less than interested in putting a smile on their faces.

Can you really blame the young men who act this way or can we swing it back to the girls, and in many cases the women, who allow this type of behavior to be a standard and to happen continuously.

Girls, and women, must look for more when dealing with our opposites/the male species. We must set the tone for the relationships that we will foster with them. If its a friendship, an intimate relationship or a business relationship...Respect should always be the foundation and the thread that holds it together, that alone should bring a smile to your face!!!!

If you frown more than you smile with the ones you love in your life...then start cleaning up that space...and make room for ones that are healthy, enthusiastic and make you happy!


Enjoy your days and live out your nights smiling!

WOW... We were really on the same page yesterday! How ironic! Wassup Dee!?! This will motivate me to write more often. :) Oh and food and writing are my things as well. To be honest, touring the world and writing about it (with heavy inclusion on regional cuisine)would be my absolute DREAM JOB!!! We must speak more on this topic. Great read btw :)

Well said cuzzo. They say the nice guys finish last. Those are the ones that want to make the ladies smile. Too often like you said, the girls want the dude with "swag" that is more happy with having them as their trophy rather than their companion. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with being attracted to someone with "edge" per say, but respect has to be #1 on the list.
