Got Joy? Then Spread It

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

If you're happy and you know it….then your face will surely show it.  Right?  What about the rest of you?  Does it show too?

I'm not sure if it's a blessing or a curse, but I'm one of those people that wears her emotions on the outside.  My youngest child is just the same.  She and I take a little ribbing (from the rest of our family) for being so "open" with how we're feeling.  If we're mad or upset…..there's no hiding it.

On the other hand, it's pretty difficult for us to stifle our happiness too.

Which is a good problem to have, don't you think?  I mean, the world needs more JOY spreaders!  So, today…that's my goal.  I want to make the ones I come in contact with feel better than they did before they bumped into me.

My tactics?    S E E K

SMILE – No matter who it is, I'm going to smile right at them.

ENGAGE – I will speak to those that I run into and ask them more than "how is your day going?".  I'll be creative and customize my words to fit them.  Who doesn't like someone to notice them?

ENCOURAGE – Face it, everyone isn't going to be having a JOYFILLED day.  I will use my positive attitude to pull a hurting friend up (think, balcony person) not bring them down.

KINDNESS – Of course I won't be able to do any of this without showing genuine kindness.  I hope to spread a little niceness to those who need it.  Oh who am I kidding?  We ALL need kindness, right?

Who can you bless today with your JOY?  Alright then, get busy spreading it!
