When the world stares at you, show them your biggest smile.

Thought For The Day From Readers
Every statement that you make to others leaves its footprints on your own subconscious mind, and this holds good whether your statements are false or true.
When people hear the word ‘self-love’ they associate it with the word ‘selfish,’ but I’m here today to tell you that self-love is not selfish. Self-love is empowering and inspiring. It’s something we should all do every single day. Loving yourself doesn’t — and shouldn’t — take away from loving others, as being selfish does. Self-love allows you to embrace who you are and, as a result, be come better at loving not only yourself but also others.
While self-love can be defined as excess in self-pride, I prefer to think of it in terms of a feeling of self-respect and self-worth.
You are here to serve others, to be a light for them, to participate in their lessons and to help heal humanity. You are also here to serve yourself, to heal your karma, to enable your soul’s growth and reconnect to the Source. Your challenge is to find a balance between serving others and yourself so that you can accomplish the tasks that you established for yourself in this lifetime and even go beyond that. How you view your role in serving others is an important part of this process.
