When you’re a Great Grandma or Great Aunt or Great Cousin and your grandchild, niece/nephew, or cousin asks you what it was like when you were little, what do you want to say? What will you say?
I would want to say that I was a great child; that I had amazing parents, and so many awesome childhood memories that I didn’t know where to begin! I want to say that my life was like a dream come true. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to say that?
Well, right now is the time that you might describe to that grandchild, niece/nephew, or cousin. If you think about it, what would you describe it as? A dream? Normal? Absolutely horrid?
Well, if it’s anything less than a dream, you’d better get working on it. We might as well live life so that it’s nice enough to tell a child about. I know my life isn’t a dream right now. I guess that means that I have to work on that.
But how do we change it?
Well, I guess the first place to start is to change how we think. If I’m like, “Ow! That hurt!” for external, I guess I just do my best to ignore it. If it’s internal, I think I better talk it out so that I won’t have a major blow out right away or later.
If something bad happen, smile and push through. Crack a joke or two throughout the day. Remain cheerful. Be sunny around others, and they just might become sunny too. Double suns makes double sunlight! The brighter it is, the better. 😀
If you can be that rainbow in everybody’s day, then they just might start acting happier around you, and your day will be better.
I know this all may seem corny, but sometimes, when I’m happy and I do this, it works. Or when I’m in a bad mood, and somebody else is like this, it makes me happy. I think that’s proof enough that it works, if you need proof at all.
Make your life a dream. 🙂
