It’s easy to let a bad mood stick to you like gum on the bottom of your favorite shoes. I wouldn't say those moods come around often, but when they do they have a tendency to put a dark cloud over your day and make you want to rain on everyone’s parade. I try to be a positive person, and not to toot my own horn or anything, but I think most people that know me personally would say that I am. Sometimes overly positive.
So, when Morgan of Eeny meeny Miny Morgan asked me to be a part of the #bekindblogcampaign, I couldn’t say no, because this campaign is all about who I am. As Morgan puts it, being kind and being positive are choices. Yes, choices, meaning that you have control over your mood.
I love this quote because it's so true. Our reactions to life determine so much that it's almost scary. When I sit back and think about situations that I thought were the end of the world at the time I laugh, because it seems so silly now. What if I had reacted different? How would it have changed things? They weren't bad situations, but how I reacted put me in a place to think that they were.
So, I'm making a pact to spread more happiness around, to be more positive, and to be more kind because I think the world could use a little more of it. A few years ago I did 22 random acts of kindness and as my birthday approaches in less than two months, I think I may do this again.
