Smiling is good for you

I looked ordinary in the reflection of her massive mirror shades. In the lunchtime sun, she was the coolest girl on the beach, looking like a model straight from a wacky fashion show. Floral mini sundress, yellow Converse and a Russian army hat complete with furry ear flaps. 

Everyone smiled at her, no matter what they thought about her dress sense. Outrageous, eccentric and somehow gorgeous in being herself.

On everyone's lips this week, is the name of another woman who has made people smile by being who she is. Susan Boyle has touched our hearts with her wonderful rendition of a song that speaks to all of us that have the desire to live our dreams. She couldn't have chosen a better song given her story. 

If you haven't seen it and don't know what all the fuss is about, play her YouTube clip where she sings "I dreamed a dream" and you'll get the picture. 

Whatever you think of it, it's bound to make you smile. 
You might shed a tear as well.
