A kind reader recently complimented this blog and asked what I put on my cornflakes or breakfast bars in the morning that always made me so cheerful. Reading her comment warmed my heart and made me laugh. You’ll see why I laughed when you read my reply below.
Thank you for brightening my day with your kind and humorous message, Patty. I’m glad that you find reading the posts useful. In “real life” I’m not always upbeat and cheerful–especially first thing in the morning! I’m not a “morning person” by nature. I’m downright grumpy!
My life is so filled with blessings that I should awaken with a beaming smile and tap-dance to work. I wish! But I’ve done some things to reduce the grumps. I’ve found that getting 8 hours of sleep helps my disposition a LOT, and I’ve noticed that if I have a lot of sugar I tend to feel depressed shortly afterward, so I’m beginning to eat less of it, especially in the morning.
As for my cheerful posts, my day is brighter when I focus on positive, upbeat, uplifting things, so I selfishly post about things that brighten my day. If my posts also brighten your day and those of others, I guess the collateral kindness simply can’t be helped. ;-D!
