Spread a Little Sunshine
I LOVE sunny days. In fact, I love them so much that if my fair complexion could stand the intensity of the sun, I'd be outside 24/7. But, that's not possible, so when I am outside, I drink it all in. Today's Quote of the Day makes me think about living a sunny life.
Today's quote is from Normal Vincent Peale: “The way to happiness: keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. Try this for a week and you will be surprised."
How's your life going today? Are you thinking good, positive thoughts? Or are you dwelling on the negative and the difficult challenges that you face. Life is all about perspective. What's your perspective today? If you haven't started that gratitude list that I mentioned a few months ago, today is a great day to start.
It's never too late to start a life of positive perspective. Maybe there's someone at work who has caused some problems. And maybe they need a helping hand or just a little compassion. And you're probably that person who is there to encourage them. It's time to spread a little sunshine. This is your day. Have a great one and make it count.
