I am at my best when I have a busy day in front of me. Right after my meditation, I check to see what is on the calendar for the day. When the day is packed I am a happy women, usually work out and then begin to take on the day. On the slower days, I notice that I take a little longer to get to the gym and frankly I don’t seem to workout quite as vigorously as I do when there is a full day ahead. Yesterday was one of those days.
As a result, I decided to take a quick trip over to St Armand’s Circle and browse in some of my favorite shops. While passing by the new fashions displayed in the windows usually lures me inside, today I didn’t see one thing in any window that encouraged me to step inside. All of a sudden, as I passed a store I rarely shop in, large letters adhered to the outside of the window glared at me and stopped me in my tracks.
“Find your sunshine”, the words commanded. I entered that store immediately! I simply had to congratulate someone on the very important reminder they were sending to the community.
Find your sunshine!
The sign reminds all of us to find our happy in the event that we have misplaced it for one reason or another. I have my sunshine with me almost always and so do you! That’s why we smile a lot and generally see the positive side of life. Occasionally, however, we seem to forget to let our sunshine out, hiding the infectious smile. The sign reminds us that it is not enough to keep our happy inside, we need to display it, to share it as a reminder to others to find their sunshine as well. When we smile, others smile. When we smile, others feel better.
Women with High SUCCESSTROGEN smile easily, displaying their sunshine and warming others around them. Happy is a major part of who they are.
If my smile isn’t coming easily on a given day, I take a moment and review my mental list of things for which I am grateful. I recall something funny, a time when I laughed out loud, and my smile reappears quickly. My go-to tool is to recall a recent funny late conversation with Helen and Leah. Some of those memories actually make me laugh out loud, and more important, smile again!
What is it that brings out your smile? What is it that helps you “find your sunshine?
