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

Author Unknown

The way we get up in the morning sets the tone for our entire day so I'm sharing with you today two of the things I do each morning to start my day off right

Start the day with thanking God

Looking at my self in the mirror and smiling

Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, Another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday

Og Mandino

If you don't start out the day with a smile, it's not too late to start practicing for tomorrow

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hey Ma!
I love the quotes and the idea of smiling into a mirror. We have a son I wish I could get to do that. Also wish he would take advice like you are giving. But alas....

Anyway Your posts are always upliftng. Thanks.

I like your morning routine, Ma. I need to get into the habit of doing those two things when I get up. I do thank God but not first thing and I rarely smile at myself. Very good advice indeed!

I'll echo Grammy - "laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you cry alone". HOWEVER....though I always smile at myself in the mirror of a morning and incline my head (I can always get EXACTLY the right angle you see!), you can bet your socks somebody will take my photo and all my illusions are shattered - again!
