As I look at my performances or any other pictures these days I notice that I’m smiling… but I’m not. The smile looks so fake, like plastic.
I notice this with many people my age or older. Heck I see it with celebrities the most.
What? Are we exhausted? We aren’t even that old. Working in a hospital I can tell you that old starts after 75-80 and that too only in some.
I look back at younger day pictures and realized the difference.
We’ve all been through our shares of ups and downs by this point in life. And it’s weighed heavily on us – making us resort to plastic smiles.
Because we forgot how to smile with our eyes.
That’s right… true smiles are not created by the lips…
… they’re created by the sparkle in ones eyes.
