// Today is National Smile Day. It is also National Utah Day and National Macaroon Day, both things that make me smile! But we are going to talk about the smiles for a bit.
Possibly never in the history of the world has a smile been so needed, so necessary. I used to NEVER smile in photos. Why? Because I actually used to care what people said about me. My boyfriend always said “your crooked smile is cute”, that’s like saying your hairy legs are cozy, or your ratchet nails give character. I used to want to be a broadcaster until I realized all broadcasters had beautiful smiles.
It was something that always bothered me, and so, at 34 I committed to @invisalign - and then lost my job a month later, talk about a frivolous expense! Here’s the thing - when you’re on your deathbed do you actually want to say you held back on something because of what ONE person said about you? Smile in the photos, wear the breathing suit, take a chance on a “silly little dream”. I want to know, what makes YOU smile?
