Robert Louis Stevenson
Don’t we all wish sometimes that there was a magic key that we could use to open the door to happiness. Instead of wistfully wishing for the things we seek, we can take actions that will bring those things into your lifeFrom the list above, we at least have some ideas for a good start at finding that key.
I can go into to work with a smile for every one, but usually there just isn’t anyone there to SMILE at. I would compliment them if I could... There just isn’t much I can do in my line of work when there just isn’t an opportunity. It’s not like a customer service job or working with the public in nursing or teaching . But when the occasion does come, I do try to be as cheerful and kind as I can.
I found out a long time ago that no one wants to listen to someone gripe and complain all the time. Just the fact that I try to be cheerful make me feel better too.
I do wish you all a wonderful Monday. It’s a new day and a new week. We never know what surprises may come our way and being the optimist that I am, I’m hoping for only good ones for sure.
THOUGHT FOR TOAY
Cheerful thoughts like sunbeams
Lighten up the "darkest fears,
For when the heart is happy,
There's just no time for tears.
And when the face is smiling,
It's impossible to frown,
And when you are "high-spirited,
You cannot feel "low-down."
For the nature of our attitude
Toward circumstantial things,
Determines our acceptance
Of the problems that life brings.
And since fear and dread and worry
Cannot help in any way,
It's much healthier and happier
To be cheerful every day.
And if you'll only try it
You will find, without a doubt
A cheerful attitude's something
No one should be without.
For when the heart is cheerful,
It cannot be filled with fear,
And without fear, the way ahead,
Seems more distinct and clear.
Helen Steiner Rice
If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it
