Have you ever looked at the motorists in the traffic around you? What a cheerless bunch! Do they carry that cheerlessness over when they arrive at their destination? Is that why service is often so unfriendly? How can we increase the cheerfulness in the world?
Let us be of good cheer, remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear are those which never happen – James Russell Lowell
Cheerfulness removes the rust from the mind, lubricates our inward machinery, and enables us to do our work with fewer creaks and groans. If people were universally cheerful, probably there wouldn’t be half the quarreling or a tenth part of the wickedness there is. Cheerfulness, too, promotes health and immortality: cheerful people live longest here on earth, and longest afterward in our hearts.
Wondrous is the strength of cheerfulness, and its power of endurance – the cheerful woman will do more in the same time, will do it; better, will preserve it longer, than the sad or sullen – Thomas Carlyle
So how does one become cheerful? Act cheerful and you’ll soon be cheerful! All it takes is intent . . . try it!
