Coming in the Winter Devotions of Broken Body, Wounded Spirit: Balancing the See-Saw of Chronic Pain series.

Ten rules for an inspirational life:
 #1 - Stop negative self talk.
#2 - Smile at someone and yourself every day.
#3 - Tell somebody, even a pet, you love them….

Don’t let it stop here. Make a goofy face at yourself, take a selfie and share it with everyone in your contact list so you can spread the word. Watch and listen for the difference it makes in your own self dialogue ….. SMILE!

“If I can see pain in your eyes then share with me your tears. 
If I can see joy in your eyes then share with me your smile.”
― Santosh Kalwar
