seal the rips and smile!
Why so sad? Why do you hardly smile? You have many reasons to be happy! So as cheesy as it may sound, turn your frown upside down! You're never too far to turn around and start again! So, get back up, seal the rips, and show them how to begin again.
Life knocks you down, and people disappoint, but I want you to know that you're not the only one! There are so many people in the same condition that you're in...or it could be even worse. Instead of moping around and letting everybody see your frown, show your big grin, because I can guarantee that it's prettier!
I know it may be hard to smile and be happy 24/7, but just think of the amazing things that God's done for you. The big things, the little things, the things that we take for granted - like that breath that we just breathed in - the things we don't even know about. It's as countless as the grains of sand by the sea! And if that doesn't put a smile on your face, I don't know what would.
Yeah, things get complicated and we fall, sometimes flat on our faces...But that shouldn't stop us from continuing to grow as a person and as God's children. That should encourage us to strive to do better and be better. I always want to strive to be a better person, and I think our first step is to get up out of our lowliness, seal all of the rips (whether it be embarrassment, sickness, pride, sin) by humbly praying to God, and then get back up! Get up and forget about your past and future, live in the now, take a deep breath and smile real big.
Don't sit there in shame and pity, do something about it! Don't you want to give it all to God and smile?!
