Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor, but evil comes to the one who searches for it.
TERRIFIC 2's Tuesday/ Attitude and SMILES
As the above verse implies, we will find the negative if we look for it. Still, the opposite is also true. When we look for the good in people or situations, we really can find it.
Very often I've found that in negative situations, it's my attitude that needs to be changed. Every day may not be a good one but there is something good in every day and rejoicing in each day does make a difference.
Rejoice is a word that is difficult to translate. The idea of the word is that of finding joy, or the things that bring joy. Someone has suggested that it ought to be translated, Let my last word to you be rejoice. It is a call for the expression of real joy.
Some people are always negative and critical. Nothing ever pleases them. They know no joy, so they give no joy. We need to evaluate our attitude. Is the world a brighter, happier place because I am here? Will my smile send someone away with a little sunshine in their lives? It ought to.
Studies have pinpointed 18 different kinds of smiles. The most common and recognizable is the smile of enjoyment.
Those are my 2 for this Tuesday: attitude and SMILES.
May your day be filled with a joyful attitude and lots of SMILES!
May we have an attitude that makes life easier for ourselves and for those around us.
Have a TERRIFIC Tuesday everyone!
