A December to Remember!

Monday, December 03, 2012

It’s December – it’s just natural this time of year to want to make a difference, to give, to spread a little joy, and to be happy. With those goals in mind, I have decided that I am going to make December a month to remember. I have set a goal to “mindfully” do something different, out of my ordinary routine, every day this month. I’ll have to be creative and daring.

With that in mind, I am going to challenge myself. I’m challenging myself to take it up a notch, and to pump some extra vigor and excitement not only into my life, but the lives of others, and really make this month count! I’ve got a short list to begin working with, and will be concentrating on one thing each day.

Would you like to join me in this challenge? I would love some company! The more the merrier! If you have any ideas for this challenge to ourselves, please feel free to give me an idea. I hope you’ll check back in each day with anticipation and excitement as to what awaits. Let’s have fun with this!

So here’s my first challenge:

Today I challenge you to make someone smile.

I know what you're thinking already . . .That's so easy!

I know this seems small, and that's a good way to begin. Do you realize you MUST begin with yourself? How often do we think along those lines? We usually think about others, and their happiness. We need to think about that also for ourselves today and every day. Doesn’t the happiness of others begin with us? By beginning with concentrating on our own happiness, how can we NOT HELP but spread a little bit of that around?! If we are happy we'll make those around us and others happy.

“The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.” ~Author Unknown

“Everyone smiles in the same language” ~Author Unknown

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” ~Thích Nhất Hạnh

Just remember -

No matter how grouchy you're feeling,
You'll find the smile more or less healing.
It grows in a wreath
All around the front teeth
Thus preserving the face from congealing.
~Anthony Euwer

So today - Let’s smile, and make someone happy!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Today I made my DD smile! It was an all round miserable weather day . . . dark, dank, dreary, drizzly, dull with a dense fog. Several of her friends needed a ride to school today, so I drove them . . . they actually thanked me . . . EVEN MY DD! Wow! That made ME smile!
