I’ve been learning to smile more lately, both externally and internally. It’s such a simple component to life that I’ve lost sight of over the years, and as I make a concerted effort to reinvigorate myself with genuine happiness, I find myself more fulfilled everyday. This morning, I wrote down a list of things I’m grateful for; as a serial complainer in the past, that’s not an action that you would’ve caught me doing on my own accord on a Friday morning, yet there I was. I won’t go into details, but seeing that list on paper was a refreshing reminder of all the blessings I take for granted on a daily basis (Spotify Premium included!).
My heart was warmed, I smiled to myself, and then went onto my work for the day with an increasingly positive attitude; low and behold, the universe decided I needed to continue that trend as I was sent a new track from none other than SMLE. Its romantically charged joy has a matter-of-fact nature to it that I seriously vibe with as it feels like Helen Tess is singing her own list of gratitude. It’s the perfect compliment to this day I’ve just begun, and to that, I can’t help but smile.
