I just looked at myself in the mirror and smiled and released the habitual compression I usually hold around my eyes. Wow! My face just jumped out at me — alert and inviting! Who wouldn’t want to get close to a face like that? Just imagine if I walked around with that face and met people with that face! It would skyrocket my popularity. Who wouldn’t feel happy? Who wouldn’t want to get close to me?

I can’t believe the face beaming back at me. It makes me smile even more. This could change my life — just releasing the unnecessary tension on my forehead, up and down my jaw, along my lips, and letting loose with a genuine smile that starts in my eyes and travels down like a bridge over troubled water.

Sail on golden boy. Your time has come to shine.
