There was once a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.

“Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today,” so she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw she had only two hairs on her head.

“HMM,” she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today,” and she did and she had a grand day.

The next morning she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw she had only one hair left on her head.

“Well,” she said, “Today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.” So she did and it was a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head.

“YEAH!” she exclaimed, “I don’t have to fix my hair today!”

Remember you may not be able to control what someone says or does or some of the situations that life throws you, but you can sure control the way you react.

One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can be. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, “How was the trip?” “It was great, Dad.” “Did you see how poor people can be?” the father asked. “Oh Yeah” said the son. “So what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.

The son answered, “I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.

We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.”

With this the boy’s father was speechless. Then his son added, “Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are.”

Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don’t have. What is one person’s worthless object is another’s prize possession. It is all based on one’s perspective. Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for all the bounty we have, instead of worrying about wanting more. Take joy in all you have, especially your friends.

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter,

“Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you won’t fall into the river.”

The little girl said, ” No, Dad. You hold my hand.”

“What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzlled father.

“Theres a big difference,” replied the little girl.

“If i hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.”

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond. So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold yours…


Para po sa mga gustong makatanggap ng notification kapag may bagong article ang Isang Minutong SMILE na maaaring makapagpa-SMILE sa inyo kahit isang minuto lamang, lagay nyo lang po email address nyo at kami nang bahalang i-update kayo everytime may new article…

We’ ve been friends for a long time ago. We come from the same alma mother. Actually, our paths crossed one time on another. But it’s only now that I gave him a second look. I realized that beauty is in the eyes. The pulpbits of my heart went fast, really fast. Cute pala siya. And then, he came over with me. He said, “I hope you don’t mine. Can I get your number?” Nag-worry ako. What if he doesn’t give it back? He explained naman na it’s so we could keep intact daw. Sabi ko, connect me if i’m wrong but are you asking me ouch? Nabigla siya. Sagot niya, The! Aba! Parang siya pa ang galit! Persona ingrata!!! Ang kapal niya! I cried buckles of tears.

Na-guilty yata siya. Sabi niya, isipin mo na lang na this is a blessing in the sky. Irregardless daw of his feelings, we’ll go ouch na rin. Now, we’re so in love. Mute and epidemic na ang past. Thanks God we swallowed our fried. Kasi, I’m 33 na and I’m running our time. After 2 weeks, he plopped the question. “Will you marriage me?” I’m in a state of shocked. Kasi mantakin mo, when it rains, it’s four! This is true good to be true. So siyempre, I said yes. Love is a many splendor.

Pero nung inaayos ko na ang aming kasal, everything swell to pieces. Nag-di-dinner kami noon nang biglang sa harap ng aming table, may babaeng humirit ng, “Well, well, well. Look do we have here.” What the fuss! The nerd ng babaeng yon! She said they were still on. So I told her, whatever is that, cut me some slacks! I didn’t want this to get our hand kaya I had to sip it in the bud. She accused me of steeling her boyfriend. Ats if! I don’t want to portrait the role of the other woman. Gosh, tell me to the marines! I told her, “please, mine you own business!” Who would believe her anyway?

Dahil it’s not my problem anymore but her problem anymore, tumigil na rin siya ng panggugulo. Everything is coming up daisies. I’m so happy. Even my boyfriend said liketwice. He’s so supportive. Sabi niya, “Look at is this way. She’s our of our lives.” Kaya advise ko sa inyo – take the risk. You can never can tell. Just burn the bridge when you get there. Life is shorts. If you make a mistake, we’ll just pray for the internal and external repose of your soul. I second emotion.

Walang masama kung susubukan mo,kahit isang minuto
pagbigyan mo ang sarili mong maging masaya…
kahit isang segundo lang okey na un…

Isang segundo?!!!Sabi nga ng karamihan, TAGUMPAY! ang Isang Minutong SMILE…Kung kinaya natin ng isang minuto, bakit di natin dagdagan? lolzz, mukhang nakakangawit kung isang oras na…Pero palagay ko, pwede kung araw-arawin natin ang pag ngiti…Tutal, sarili naman natin ang nakikinabang, at kung maipamamahagi mo pa ito sa iba, malamang pati sila’y makinabang sa simpleng ngiti na inialay mo.

Deal?! Araw-araw kailangan nyong ngumiti, tapos gawin natin opisyal na SMILE DAY ang December 08 para sa mga sumusuporta nito…Kung okey sa inyo, hablutin nyo ung bagong logo ng Isang Minutong SMILE sa taas, i- link sa artikulong ito, tapos fill-up mo yung form sa sidebar para i-link kita as supporter nitong Isang Minutong SMILE…

At sa mga may logo na sa kanilang sidebar, pasuyo naman, pakipalitan ng bago :-) tapos inform nyo na rin ako sa pamamagitan ng pag fill-up ng form sa sidebar…

Maraming-maraming salamat muli sa lahat…

Hindi ko akalain na ganito karami ang susuporta sa Isang Minutong SMILE, nung una kabado nga ako dahil baka ni isa ay walang magpadala ng picture o mag post man lamang ng article tungkol dito…Pero hayan at sobrang dami, mga kaibigan, mga adiktos, mga parekoy, at mga hindi kakilalang ngayon ay kaibigan na rin sa mundo ng blogosperyo…

Gusto ko lang sanang ihatid ang munting pasasalamat sa pagsuporta sa adhikaing ito, hindi man tayo magkita-kita o magkaruon ng isang pagtitipon para dito, sapat na ang suporta at ngiting naidulot nyo sa lahat, napakalakeng bagay para sa bawat isa ang ngiting naipamahagi natin sa kanila…Ngayon na nga ang itinakdang araw para sa Isang Minutong SMILE, pero sana hindi matapos ang event sa araw na ito, nawa’y patuloy tayong magbigay ngiti sa mas nakakarami…

Muli, nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng nagpadala ng picture;

Isang quote na tumatak sa isipan ng ilang mambabasa ng pahinang ito, umukit na sa aking puso mula ng naikumento ko kay Mareng Jen..At ngayon muling susubukang ibahagi sa mas nakakarami…makapagpangiti kahit sa simpleng paraan…

From The Pope
Tama ka Lord, kung lahat ng tao sa buong mundo ay magkakaisa at sabay-sabay na mag-aalay ng isang minuto para sa kanyang pansariling kasiyahan, magkakaruon ng tunay at ganap na kasiyahan sa buong mundo for 60 seconds – sana’y magkaruon nga ng advocacy na 60 Seconds World Happy Day...Source

Bakit hindi natin subukan? Sabay-sabay tayong ngumiti, tumawa o magpakasaya sa kabila ng maraming problemang kinakaharap ng bawat isa. Kalimutan ang kalungkutan kahit isang minuto lamang.

Sa darating na December 08, 20XX, 8PM Manila Time, sabay sabay nating tanggalin sa isipan ang lahat ng bumabagabag sa atin, mag isip ng masasayang bagay na pangyayari sa iyong buhay, at ngumiti na parang walang problema…kahit isang minuto lang…

Hinihingi ko ang tulong ng lahat ng mambabasa ng pahinang ito na ibahagi sa iba ang ISANG MINUTONG SMILE, sa pamamagitan ng paggawa ng artikulo sa inyong pahina o pag display sa inyong blog ng imahe na nasa taas, at i-link sa artikulong ito. At kung maipapasa nyo sa iba, mas maganda upang mas marami pa tayong mapasaya…

Inaasahan ko po ang inyong pakikiisa upang maisakatuparan ang hiling ni The Pope, ganun din ako, para sa buong mundo na magkaruon ng tunay at ganap na kasiyahan kahit isang minuto lamang

Di nyo ba napansin, galing ang idea kay The Pope, at susubukang isakatuparan ni LordCM ? Parang nasa Rome lang enoh :-)
