Happiness is contagious. Something we all know but I think is easy to forget. When others are happy, their happiness spreads. And likewise, when we are happy, ours spreads to those around us.
Cheerful people always cheer me up, and I’m going to try to remember that. If I’m cheerful and upbeat most of the time, my children will see that happiness modeled for them. Likewise, if I’m unhappy, find fault with everything, and am complaining most of the time, my children will see that modeled.
