Daily Dose of Inspiration

“Constantly apply cheerfulness, if for no other reason than because you are on this spiritual path. Have a sense of gratitude to everything, including difficult emotions, because of their potential to wake you up.”

~ Pema Chodron

Your attitude affects everything you experience. It’s what establishes the way you feel at any given moment. If you’re cheerful and have a positive attitude, you feel good and the world around you reflects that back to you. If you’re grouchy and have a negative attitude, you feel bad and the world reflects that.

Do you see the correlation? Good breeds good, bad breeds bad. That’s the way life works. And, lucky for us, our emotions are always there dutifully serving as our personal messenger of what, by way of our attitude, we are offering the world.

Make cheerfulness your offering, my friend, and let everyone benefit.
