Cheerfulness + #MyPostMonday

If I were more cheerful in the morning, I'm sure my days would be better. It seems that members of my household have different periods of the day where we have better outlooks than other times. Speaking of myself, I am not a morning person, I need a chance to wake up and get moving. That's not the case for my husband. As a matter of fact, if I want to approach him when he's in a good mood, I should do it in the morning, when he first wakes up! Sometimes it's just annoying to see him so cheery. I just can't match his perpetual good mood. I feel sorry about it, because he seems so disheartened when I can't come up to his level. I remind him, though, that if he leaves me alone for a moment, I can generally come closer to his level as the morning progresses.

I have two friends who work together. One of them can't stomach the other one. The reason is because my other friend is too cheerful. What a reason to dislike someone! But people who are cheerful, really do tend to bother more morose individuals.

But who is to blame? The cheerful person or the grump? Let's get this straight. The cheerful person is going to be happier overall AND healthier every time! The sooner us grumps realize that, the better off we'll be. 

Basically, I need to start coming up to the mark and becoming more cheerful in the morning. Sometimes I think we make an excuse to be grumpy when things aren't perfect. That isn't the case.  One of the measures of living greatly is facing disappointment with cheerfulness. That means that if your Super Bowl team lost, you still need to be cheerful! No more doom and gloom, Panther fan!

Let's address the elephant in the room and stop making excuses for the grumps in the world. Cheerfulness is where it's at. Being an Eeyore isn't cute like on Winnie the Pooh, it's something to learn to get over. That being said, I now have to practice what I preach tomorrow morning as I get along on way less sleep than what I wanted!!

Today is "My Post Monday!" It's all about original content from bloggers who care to share what is on their minds--from Crafts to Camping, Wellness to Wealth, Fashion to Food, and whatever else is on the brain!  I, for one, love to explore other sites for original, non-sponsored posts, tips, pictures and videos! Sponsored posts are great and I appreciate the information from well-written and authentic sponsored posts, I write them myself! But this linky is for non-sponsored posts because they are all about what the writer thinks, believes, and knows. It's not about a specific brand and what it compensates the blogger to promote! If I happen to find a great original, non-sponsored post, I'll link it up and share it with you here and on Twitter via the #MyPostMonday hashtag!  It's like being featured!  I can miss some amazing posts, but I don't want to!  So, in addition, if you'd like to link up yourself, you can do that too!  I'll visit your site, comment, promote and publicize! Remember, any link to your posts helps your blog numbers increase! (Affiliate links OK)
