I found this inspiring message from Yoko Ono awhile ago and want to share it. Simple yet profound truth:
When John, my husband, passed away, I was feeling down, so down, that it showed on my face when I looked at myself in the mirror.
“This is bad,” I thought.
I could make myself ill, or if not, make myself a very irritable person, which would be not nice, especially for Sean, my son.
I have to get out of this.
So I systematically smiled into the mirror every morning.
My smile was forced and looked terrible.
But as I kept smiling for some time, my smile became a natural smile.
It not only became a smile with my mouth and my eyes, but my shoulders, my tummy, and finally, with my whole body!
I thought “Okay, I’ve won the battle!”
That’s when I realised how important it is for all of us to smile—not for anybody else, but for ourselves and our health.
That was all.
Soon I forgot about it as an impossible job.
Please smile for your health and joy.
If all of us do this, our planet will be a heaven, created by us.
I love you!
