That was my first tweet this morning because, even though the morning didn’t begin exactly as planned, I knew it was going to be an amazing day. Why do we sometimes let a few bad moments of our day ruin what’s left of it? I’ve been guilty of it more times than I would like to admit.
What I’ve learned is that I can completely change my day by:
- Taking a deep breath
- Saying a prayer for help and strength
- Thinking about things that make me happy.
What are some things that make me happy; what makes me smile?
As a mom: my babies. I love watching them sleep and holding them close. It makes me smile when they tell me they love me or hug or kiss me on their own.
As a wife: My husband makes me smile when we’re walking, and he reaches over to hold my hand.
As a teacher: The moment a student is successful in something she didn’t realize she could do. That moment when the “light bulb” goes off on something she’s been struggling with learning.
As a youth leader, writer, and speaker: When a girl realizes she’s worth so much more than she ever knew.
As a princess (daughter of God): When I can clearly tell that it was God’s words spoken or written and not my own.
What makes you smile like nothing else can?
