“The cheerful live longest in years, and afterwards in our regards. Cheerfulness is the offshoot of goodness.”
~Christian Nestell Bovee
Looking for a little cheer today, seek out those people who will bring a little more sunshine into your life. You will be amazed how being surrounded with positive people can make your life even more worth living. Ever notice how you feel when you are with a person who embodies a glass half full kind of attitude. When you are with them, you get an energy boost that can lift you up to believe in all kinds of possibilities. Your enthusiasm for life increases. And, your ability to embrace a world full of magic and miracles multiplies. When you are around people of good cheer, life just feels better. And after you leave their company, you may be more inclined to share a simple smile with a stranger. You may be more inclined to take in the beauty of your surroundings. You may be more inclined to stand up confidently, chest out, heart ready to experience love. Life certainly can be challenging at times, so if you can’t share a smile of your own, seek out those who can share one with you. Before long, the cheerfulness and optimism that is shared with you will encourage you to follow your own bliss and pass on the love. And in the end, you will always remember with gratitude the goodness that was shared and certainly be empowered to continue with this sentiment. For if the cheerful live longest in years, that is something that you can hope will be contagious for as long as you live!
