Happy Moods Are Contagious

I try to be happy. Really, I have so many things to be grateful for that I really shouldn't ever be in a bad mood.

But...those bad moods happen more often than I like. Sometimes, I find that happy people are contagious, though. When I am all sullen and out-of-sorts, a happy person can cheer me up again without even trying.

For instance, one day I came home from lunch in a splendid mood. Hubs wasn't in a bad mood, but he made a comment that I was very happy and I do think I made his lunch, and hopefully his afternoon, better.

Another day, I came home from lunch tired, worn-out, and crabby. Ransom was his normal happy-go-lucky self and walked up to me and gave me a wet kiss on my cheek. Normally, not a fan of dog slobber on my cheek, it was as if he wanted to pass some happiness my way...and he did.

And yet on another day, I went through the drive thru at Starbucks all bogged down and grumpy. The worker recognized me , and chatted about the beautiful day. He was so happy to see me that the weather was beautiful that instantly my mood was lightened.

So next time a bad mood comes along, try to find a happy person, or dog, to turn that frown upside down!
