I Decide What Kind of Day I’m Going to Have
How I approach the world each day largely determines the kind of day I’ll have and the quality of interactions I’ll experience. So I make a conscious decision every day to be cheerful. I strive to spread joy.
Since I prefer that people have positive effects on me, I want to do the same for everyone I come into contact with. This means paying attention to my mood and ensuring that I stay positive.
You Can’t Share From An Empty Cup
However, in order to have something to share with others, my own cup – including my heart and my soul – must be full. So I also tend to my own happiness by engaging in activities that satisfy me. This helps elevate my mood and enables my approach to life to be full of joy and enthusiasm.
I strive to uplift others and to be uplifted by those I encounter. Life is just so much more pleasant when I am in the company of happy people. In order to buoy the spirits of others, I am joyful and spread happiness and positive energy among those around me as much as I can.
Today, I promise myself to put all my efforts into spreading happiness wherever I go. I plan to stay on top of my moods so I can consciously share joy and positive feelings.
1. What does my mood say to others?
2. Do I consciously decide to be happy each morning when I first wake up? If not, why not? What is my “typical” mood?
3. How can I ensure that I spread cheer and happiness wherever I go?
