As I mentioned before, I try to always think positive. Even on cloudy days, I like to focus on the silver lining because I know that just above the clouds, the sun is shining. But simply thinking positive isn’t enough. I also try to be positive. By that I mean letting my light shine and letting everyone around me know that I am happy.
Yesterday morning at our morning meeting, I made it a point to keep a smile on my face. Nothing particularly positive was going on, I just decided to smile. I can tell you that of the 12 people in the meeting, I was the only one with a smile on his face. All the rest of the people were frowning. It took all of 15 seconds for someone to ask why I was so “Darn happy.”
In a very happy voice, I just said “I am just happy to be here.” Silence filled the room and everyone stared at me. So I continued: “we all have great jobs and they pay us well. I like my job too which is why I am happy.” A few people made snide comments and there was some whispering going on after that so I just dropped it and continued to smile. They now all think I am crazy but in a happy kind of way. I can live with that.
Share that happy feeling,
