“Smile though your heart is aching…”

Nat King Cole’s hit strikes a chord with anyone who’s ever suffered a broken heart, but it’s not just a cheesy line from a song.

Trying to remain positive following a negative situation is good advice, but it’s not that easy, is it?

It takes so much effort to remain strong, but applying a slick of lippy and holding your head high can repay that effort a hundred times.

“Smile and the world smiles with you…” isn’t entirely true, but if you portray a happy disposition, it will normally be reflected back at you.

“Smile, you’re on Candid Camera!” that’s probably the time when you ignore all advice. Punch the guy with the camera - no-one likes a smart ass!
