Expressions give Impressions

It’s been said, “You earn the face you wear.” And this is true and a warning – do you have a happy face or a frowning face?
The way you hold your expression is a signal to others. And it’s all up to you!

My dad had happy facial lines – he was always smiling and cracking jokes and humming. Even when he was asleep his face looked happy – which made it easy to wake him up!

There are other people who walk around with a frown – and from what I’m learning – most of the time they are unaware of it – however, when you hold your face in that expression for years – it sticks!
So what are you communicating through your expression? What face to you wear every day? While you are listening and reading and watching – is it wonder or worry?

Today the challenge for you is to be aware of the expression you wear – and how that is sending non-verbal signals. Are you communicating the message you desire?

Friday funny:
One night a woman found her husband standing over their newborn baby’s crib. Silently she watched him. As he stood looking down at the sleeping infant, she saw on his face a mixture of emotions: disbelief, doubt, delight, amazement, enchantment, skepticism.
Touched by his unusual display of deep emotions, she felt her eyes grow moist. She slipped her arms around her husband. “A penny for your thoughts,” she whispered in his ear lovingly.
“It’s amazing,” he replied. “I just can’t see how anybody can make a crib like that for only thirty-nine ninety-five!”

You Create Your Day by the way you think! Make it Magnificent
