The First to Smile

Thursday December 24, 2015 #783

“Set the tone for your day by treating people better than you expect to be treated by them. Be the first to smile. Express your appreciation for them. Expect the best out of them. If you act first, you will set yourself up for success.”

~John C. Maxwell


Christmas Eve…  your family and/or friends gather in celebration.  It is a great time to remember to be intentional on treating people well.  Especially those closest to you, who are often the ones we take for granted.  Make today, and the rest of the holiday season, your launching point for more intentional gratitude and praise.  Act in this way and you will not only feel more positive, the reaction will astound you as the people around you return your graciousness.  Lead with your smile, and follow with appreciative words and kindnesses.  May the spirit of the season shine for you and those you care for.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!
