- Bring your own sunshine. Make it a point to be positive and enthusiastic, wherever you go. Don’t let the attitudes and circumstances around you affect you negatively. Be aware of your thoughts, and choose to radiate positivity and sunshine, even on the darkest days.
- Make a list of things you’d like to learn. Cross some off your list by the end of the week.
- Put things back where you found them. I’ll admit, I’m as guilty (if not more so) than the next person. If I’ve been in the kitchen, you know it (mainly because of my bad habit of leaving every cabinet door open). Make it a point to leave things just as nice, if not nicer, than you left them.
- Praise your loved ones. When friends and family come to you in excitement over a new project, job lead, accomplishment, etc., be overly supportive. Smile lots, give hugs and high fives. Praise your loved ones and let them know how proud they make you.
- Refrain from saying anything that is rude or hurtful. You don’t have to like the mismatched outfit someone is wearing on the bus, but you surely don’t have to snicker or gawk at them, either.
- If you have a smartphone, download the Situationist. Just do it.
- Like the people you work with. If you carry a full time job, chances are, you see your coworkers more than you do your own family. If waters are murky in your workplace, make peace. If you’re spending 40 hours a week somewhere, make sure they are enjoyable.
I just had brunch with my roommates and the lovely Violette. I’m working on a new item (that should appear in the Etsy shop this evening), and I’m about to make a kombucha run. My week is already off to a great start. Hope yours is just as enticing. (;
