Chapter 2, Page 7, Book 11

Life is like a mirror, we get the best results when we smile at it.

It's MERRY Monday here at my house today.

It's a new day and a new week to start all over again. Our attitude is one that we choose and it can make a difference to our entire week. We should choose to be more like a Monday's Child from the Mother Goose nursery rhyme that compares children to the days of the week.

Monday's Child is said to be fair of face and fair of face must mean to have a smile. Start Mondays with a smile and a positive thought, and you can chase away the negative Monday thoughts for ones that are more hopeful about what the day may bring.

The passing of time does have a tendency to affect one's outlook on life. Each morning it seems a little more difficult to get up especially for those over 60 like me. The bones creek a little more and the shoulders seem to carry a little more weight of the world. When you start each morning with a smile, even before your feet hit the floor, and keep that smile truly authentic for the rest of the day especially when speaking with others, you will be happier in all aspects of your life.

We just need to remember to smile .

I hope your Monday is a MERRY one!

Oh you are so right about a smile! It can make all the difference in the world. I try to smile at people when I am out at the grocery store or whatever and a lot of them brighten right up. Smiling is contagious isn't it?!
