Shine Bright.

Shine Bright.

Sometimes you're the only sunshine someone might see all day. Shine bright today. Especially since it's Tuesday... don't let the Monday blues roll over!

Just for fun, today, here's a few ways to shine bright:

  • Listen to uplifting, happy music on your commute. Ed Sheeran is always a winner for me.
  • Read a short devotion before you even get out of bed.
  • Create a positive morning ritual, like this guy's. (Hint: no Facebook, news, etc... BUT there is one social media outlet he uses to start his day off right)
  • Smile at people. Even if they don't smile back... at least YOU did your part, eh? Most of the time, though, your smile can trigger a "hello!"
  • Check out this list of 12 Things Happy People Do Differently. Take note of some of them. Acts of kindness go such a long way... like holding the door for someone.
  • Compliment someone. Seriously. How much do you love being complimented? It's the best.
  • Listen more than you talk. Show genuine interest. Eye contact is more important than you realize.
  • Bake for people. Obviously.

What other ways can you be the sunshine and light to someone's day?
