Speechless Sunday (almost!): Painted on smile

Speechless Sunday (almost!): Be like a clown and paint it on!

Do you ever have days when even smiling becomes difficult?

Be like a clown and paint it on!

Life is a daily challenge, the neverending twists and turns, unexpected events that may try even the best of demeanors.

You've heard the saying, "Everyone loves a clown", haven't you?

Clowns possess the ability to make people forget their troubles through entertainment. When I think of clowns, I think of Red Skelton and a quote of his...

"If some day you're not feeling well, you should remember some little thing I have said or done and if it brings a smile to your face or a chuckle to your heart then my purpose as a clown has been fulfilled."-Red Skelton

So for those days when spirits are low or you're having a particularly difficult day, find a reason to smile and...

Be like a clown and paint it on!

Li, It reminds me of if you believe it, you can be it and that does matter!

Karen, We all may have bad days but how we manage them makes all the difference!

It's overcast here too, finally feeling like Fall. Enjoy your day Virginia!

Ken, You're right, a smiling face is catching!

Wanda thanks for a great post....it is very important to stay up and positive...even if inside you are screaming....what we focus on expands...if we focus on what is hurting us we will hurt more...if we focus on good and smiles we will get more good and smiles!!! 

I love the clown analogy!!!  thanks for sharing!

I love clowns, always wanted to collect clown figurines, haven't yet though.  Clowns make you smile but when they get frustrated and exasperated who do they go too for a smile? Uhmm!

Wanda, people that have lost the ability to laugh and smile, make their lives to burdensome. Even when things are not going great, the feelings of laughter or a smile definitely give relief.

Dee, That is a good question but clowns do paint their smiles on so all they have to do is look in the mirror and S-M-I-L-E!

Ed, It is so important to laugh and find ways to be happy and spread the good stuff!

Red Skelton was one of the greats and I love watching the old DVDs of his show because he really was a great American and could always put a smile on my face.

Some of my friends would say that I’m always a clown.

P.S. I’m trying something a little different today, so I’m just leaving one comment with everyone. I’ll be back soon to do a little camping.

Wanda, I can remember watching Red Skelton as a child...he was SO funny yet made 'his point".  As ALWAYS I love your positive spirit and this is another great post!  BTW: LOVE the new profile pic!

Todd, He truly was a great American and shared his true self with everyone.

Russel, Hmmm...now why would they say that? I'd say you have a great sense of humor but would not call you a clown!

Thanks so much Alicia! Red Skelton is one of my heroes. And he never had to demean or hurt anyone else to be funny.

Wanda, Great advise and a great photo.  Painting it on then gets others to smile back at you and then you in turn actually do smile.

Can't wait for Halloween!  Will be painting on a smile!

So true Gloria! And the saying 'Smile and the world smiles with you' comes to mind! We should have an ActiveRain Halloween Party, wouldn't that be FUN?!
