How To Have An Amazing Day!

What great advise to follow! Mark and Angel have more ideas here.

Syd and I in NC last month.

Wake up every morning with the idea that something wonderful is possible today. – Smiling is a healing energy.  Always find a reason to smile.  It may not add years to your life but will surely add life to your years.  A consistent positive attitude is the cheapest ‘fountain of youth.’  You’ve got to dance like there’s nobody watching, love like you’ll never be hurt, sing like there’s nobody listening, and live like it’s heaven on Earth.  Read The How of Happiness.


I try to live this kind of life. Some days it’s difficult, but the really awesome thing is that you can’t stay sad or mad if you simply smile. I smile at myself in the mirror. I got into this habit a long time ago. Who is the first person you see each day? YOU. So if you smile at yourself first thing in the morning, you’ll have an amazing day! I also answer the phone with enthusiasm and a smile on my face. It can be felt on the other end.

Practice smiling today… it will make your day even more amazing than it already is! And leave me a comment telling me how you make sure that you have an amazing day!


Ghandi’s Top 10 Ways to Change the World

A lesson we could all learn from. Can you imagine, for one moment, what one single day would be like if everyone followed these simple principles? It would be amazing. I find myself not doing random acts of kindness here in China… no one looks at you and smiles, just blank stares at the “foreigner” and that has really changed my attitude… sad, but true. The other day I decided that needed to change. And I’ve been trying to smile more at the starers instead of making a negative comment. It has affected my own inner peace, as well as getting a few smiles back.

I challenge everyone to try these principles to day and let’s see how fantastic your Wednesday turns out!
