Cheerful Thoughts

Are you a glass half full or half empty person?  Yes, you engineers are saying that you have 50% too much glass, bur really do you think cheerful thoughts? I don’t mean all the time. When you start feeling a little low or down about something, what do you do to cheer yourself up? I like to read. Almost anything will do, but science fiction is my favorite. Or maybe you like a cheerful quote?

There is no personal charm so great as the charm of a cheerful temperament

Some other cheerful thoughts

cheerful thoughts of furry creaturesSometimes I like to find happy pictures for a bit of cheer. Like cute furry or feathered little creatures or a nice nature scene. Other times I like to find a friend and chat face to face. No email, texting, messaging, facebook, etc. just two people sitting across from each other and having a nice conversation. There may or may not be alcohol involved.Really it does not take much to cheer me up. I like the simple things of life and appreciate what I have. No matter where I am or what I have, I try really hard to be happy. This is one of the many traits that I owe to my grandmother. She was a very positive and uplifting person. That’s one of the other cheerful thoughts that  you can think about, your good memories. Happy cheerful memories of friends and family always help me have cheerful thoughts. Ice cream is good too or sometimes coffee!  Maybe you combine several at a time? What is your path to cheerful thoughts?

    Reading this made me feel cheerful, Shawn. 🙂 Music definitely lightens my mood and so do animals. Having my daughter here with her three fur babies ( one dog and two cats), I always find something to smile and be amused by with them. Animals are definitely all about unconditional love…most of the time. Nature and colourful flowers cheer me up. A gorgeous cloud filled sky cheers me up. It is truly about taking the moments to finding the joy and cheer in each day. Thanks for the reminder to cheer it up!

      Thanks for dropping by and sharing your thoughts Delia. When we saw the dalmatian bird we had to take a picture. I knew it would make it into a blog post. 🙂 Have a great day.

    I like being sad sometimes. Not necessarily in the moment, but afterward I realize how much personal growth occurs when you are reflecting on something negative in your life. What did I do to cause or contribute toward this situation? What can I do in the future to prevent this same type of negativity from occurring again?

      Shawna, that is a really great attitude. Being sad is okay, it’s part of life. Being sad all the is not. I like how you reflect, improve and move on! It’s not easy sometimes, but very necessary.
