Happy Monday, friends! This weekend we were swamped with rain, but I’m still on a vitamin D high from the previous weekend (I’m talking 72 degrees and sunny, no coat at night, kinda warm!). It disappeared quickly though and I can not wait until it arrives for good.
You know what my biggest pet peeve is? When people are rude for no good reason. And in my opinion, there never really is a good reason. It’s so true in this world when you meet someone, you have no idea what they may be battling. My sister once told me when she is having a bad day, she makes it a point to be extra nice to strangers (as opposed to walking around all pissed off to anyone & everyone). Like the grocery clerk for example. Or your Starbucks barista. I have to say, I was shocked at the positive impact it made on my day the first time I tried it. I promise it’ll lift your spirits too. In fact, studies show the more you smile (regardless of your actual feelings), the happier you become.
It’s obvious I am a big quote person (a little excessive, maybe? meh). I get this from my father. One quote I learned from him that I constantly try to remember is, ” people will not remember what you said or did, but they will remember how you made them feel.” I vote we all try to be a little kinder than necessary this week. Agreed?
Have an awesome week!
