“Most of us are just about as happy as we make up our minds to be.”
My mother has taught me all sorts of lessons over the years – ranging from how to find the first step of a huge task to how to dye my hair… the importance of Thank You cards and the perfect pair of shoes.
As a kid, whenever we were packing for a trip or outing, she would ask me if I packed my “Positive Mental Attitude.” Cheesy, I know… but it’s a life lesson I carry with me to this day.
In any situation, the only factor you can always control is yourself. So make the decision to take on the challenges and make the most of every day.
And if you ever need an extra boost, there’s always that perfect pump up song. I used to have a pre-exam ritual in college where I would listen to a certain classic to get me ready to kick some tail.
It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s
the thrill of the fight
Rising up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor
stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the eye of the tiger
And since there are studies that say Happiness is contagious to up to three degrees of separation, I hope I’m spreading it around!
So now I have to ask – What is your go to pump up song?
