How to Spread Sunshine

Hiya my fabulous friends!! Happy Monday- time to kick off a happy new week! Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about how to spread more “happy” around me, and what better day to do it than a day when I’m wearing a sunshine-inducing yellow jumpsuit?! ha.

I’m a big believer that your can spread cheer without having to partake in grand gestures, sometimes it’s simple actions that end up meaning the most. Life is tough y’all, there’s no two ways around it, and you don’t know when things are going to change in an instant- so I want to make sure I spend the time I’ve got making this world the happiest it can be! 🙂 So, here are a few ways that I like to “pay it forward” in happy feelings:

1. Smile at a stranger– trust me on this one. How many times have you walked down the street and seen a sea of stony faces? Then one of those grim lines breaks into a smile at you and you know you give them a 100-watt grin back! Smile are like instant-mood lifters, so spread them all around!

2. Send an encouraging text- text messages take like what? Point two seconds to send?? I encourage you to take 5 minutes today and text three friends something uplifting and encouraging. It can be a simple “thinking about you & hope you have a great day” or maybe an inspirational quote or bible verse or even just a “thankful for you” – but trust me, nothing makes you feel better than knowing someone was thinking of you and took time to tell you so!

3. Call your mom– My mom told me a few weeks ago that she loves it when I call because she “likes to hear my sweet voice” (If you’ve caught one of my insta-stories you know I sound about 13 years old- ha). But I know that it brightens her day to hear from me, so even though this millennial doesn’t care for the phone I try and take time to call her and say hi! You never know, it just might make your day happier too 🙂

    Love this jumpsuit on you! So pretty! And I love all of these ideas but definitely be careful when smiling at a stranger! I did the other day and the girl literally snarled at me and asked me what my problem was lol! Whoops!
