Today's focus for MindSet Monday's is:
Making the Choice to Command your Morning (DAY) with a simple yet powerful Smile and a Hello.
It's crucial that you take charge of your day and set the tone right from the start. Any morning can be hard and you want to start off on the right foot, especially if you woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Smiling and greeting those that cross your path makes you feel good inside. It gives off positive energy from the inside out. How can a smile not make you feel happy? A smile and a hello won't kill you but it could save someone else or be the comfort that they need. It's priceless! It is more than just a gesture but a gift! A gift that allows everyone to gain and goes a long way. Probably longer than you would ever think. We all can use a smile, so why not let it start with you?! It doesn't take much to smile and you don't have to use many muscles at all to do it.
Matthew 5:47(AMP) says, "And if you greet only your brethren, what more than others are you doing? Do not even the Gentiles (the heathen) do that? Wow! Whoa! I know that I am very guilty of this and I plan to make the adjustment quick! Not only does this question why we only speak when spoken to or only to people we know, it challenges us on so many different levels. Set yourself apart! You were not created and called to be average, so don't act like it. Be a blessing to others and be encouragement for yourself.
My Challenge to you!
Starting today and everyday, MAKE the CHOICE to go out of your way to smile and speak, even before someone speaks to you. Add a little sunshine to your day and brighten anothers up! This one simple action will transform your day and also change the day for someone else!
