3 Reasons Why Smiling Will Change Your Day

1. A Smile Improves Your Mood

People underestimate the power of an ear-to-ear grin. When you smile, it sends a message to your brain acknowledging that you are happy, your body will naturally release feel-good endorphins. Try it out.

2. A Smile is Transmittable

Smiling not only improves your own mood, but has a significant impact on those around you. Be the positive model for people look up to.

3. A Smile Reduces Stress

We all have stress in our lives that is projected to others. Do your best to lift your head up and smile, it will reduce your anxiety.

Jesse Barrera is a fantastic musician and has produced for a few of my favorite indie artists (AJ Rafael and Tori Kelly to name a few). His first record Love in Technicolor was steller. Through the Kickstarter platform, Jesse is in the process of completing his sophomore studio album From The Ground Up. Through the darkest and happiest of times, the record is about turning it all around and being 100%  true to be who you are. I’m proud to have been a part of funding this project and look forward to hearing the finished product! 


11 songs that explain the last 5 years of my life. The darkest of times and the happiest. This is as honest as I can ever be. This record is truly about finding the light in the darkest point of your life. It’s about knowing that we’ll all fall to the floor at some point, but knowing there’s nowhere else to go but up. This is why I called it “From The Ground Up.” – Jesse Barrera

You can pre-order “From The Ground Up” NOW –

On any given day, if you were to up and vanish, would you be happy? Would you feel fulfilled?

The band you gave up on would have radically changed the world of music even more so than The Beatles.

The family vacation you didn’t take would have been the last time your whole family would be together and happy. Your dad would die two weeks later.

The dog you didn’t save from being euthanized at the local shelter would have saved your son from drowning that cold day in November.

The orphan who sits on her bed praying for a family to come take her home and love her will never get adopted. She will become homeless and die of a drug overdose. If she had been adopted, she would have become the next Mother Theresa.

The man who never proposed to his girlfriend out of fear of ending up like his parents died, sad…

I started listening to Missy Higgins’ music back in 2010, but unfortunately lost track of her tunes as my itunes library began to expand. However, at a recent board game night, Adam, a buddy of mine, played her latest record. My ears were quickly reacquainted  with this truly talented musician.

Perhaps I’ll make more frequent music posts…I think this is the first one I’ve done since the start of this blog.

Well said. Happiness isn’t just given to us. You have to fight for it. You have to search for it…within yourself. Cheesiness aside, happiness is out there. Go get it!
