Word-Of-the-Week #747: Cheerful

November 29, 2018 by  

Cheerful – having a happy disposition; in good spirits.

How has the first week of the official Holiday Season been for you? Did you allow yourself to lollygag? Are you feeling cheerful?

This week’s WOW is brought to you by my local Einstein Bagels Store. Lox and bagels were going to be our Thanksgiving breakfast treat! I called the store in the morning and asked that they save me two everything bagels. Not a problem.

When I arrived at the store just after noon there was a line. And as I stood there waiting I saw the small chalk board next to the register with big lettering that read, “Word of the Day” on the top and “Cheerful” underneath it.

How many people do you think complained about waiting? Or anything else for that matter? The staff was busy, moving as fast as they could, and everyone was attentive and smiling. I thought to myself “What a brilliant idea!” Putting any positive word on that chalk board would have the same effect I’m pretty sure.

If you need a gentle nudge to get more cheerful check out these quotes from Success.com. My favorite is this one, “The energy you give off is the energy you receive. I really think that, so I’m always myself—jumping, dancing, singing around, trying to cheer everybody up.”Cara Delevingne

This week’s focus is cheerful. Would you say you have a happy disposition? If you are feeling down do you know how to lift your spirits? If it’s true that the energy you give off is the energy you receive, what are you getting?
