I have to share a blog I just ran across, “Are You Willing To Do This One Thing To Be Happier Each Day.” I honestly don’t even know how I found this blog, but I love it. In a nutshell, the article centers about that first thought you have during the day. Mondays are a prime example, if you start your day with a “Mondays suck” thought and then share that sentiment with the first person you see when you walk in the door, then sure enough, your Monday will suck. The unfortunate thing is that your attitude most likely has spread to the person you shared your thoughts with. So now you have this sort of “Monday’s suck” club and to be in it requires that you have a crappy day.
The whole idea is that your thoughts define your day. The author has suggested a challenge that I plan to take, share your first thoughts of the day with someone, the thought you have determined will define your day. It’s all about choice, you can choose to be happy, or motivated, or grateful – choose well!
