Just a Smile :)

Today morning I woke up with the widest ever grin on my face. I don't remember what I was so happy about, perhaps a really beautiful dream, or perhaps I had been let in on the ultimate joke in life and I don't even know what it was now...but that hardly matters. What I remember overwhelmingly is the fact that I was so surprised by my own smile!!! As if a smile is really out of place...and now that I think back, I have never ever woken up in the morning feeling incredibly happy about just any and everything..no cribs, no whines. This is something that you supposedly get to do only when you are a child. I have almost forgotten this crazy happiness, just this joy at being alive; not the happiness for having gotten something or done something well. That you learn to appreciate as you grow up. But children have the ability to tap into some secret source of unending delight and they see no reason why you should not smile. Perhaps there is a lot to treasure in that innocence and untarnished view of the world...and one must cherish it if not try and emulate it.

:)...it's really a beautiful feeling to get up that way in the morning, I agree..I have experienced it many a times and keep doing so...and once that happens the entire day after that seems to be special and wonderful...

Yeah! absolutely.. there are these mornings when you feel happy and radiant from within for no reason at all... and you can't help but smile even though it seems stupid. Good to know that you had this sweet morning. :)

Keep smiling and blogging.

Wow,the only thing I feel in the mornings is groggy...perhaps smiling the first thing will help set the rest of the day right...who knows..maybe be my clones will grow happier and better when i'm smiling down at them:)

I sometimes get up laughing in the morning... And sometimes I remember very well why I was laughing... And most of the time, the situation that I was dreaming about is not suitable for laughing in the real world at all... But then, that is the difference between dreams and reality, perhaps...

So true....and its not just in case of a smile. Sometimes you are unnecessarily grumpy and you realize the unkown only when you probe deeper. Wish that smiles are more than frowns.
