Motivational Monday #13


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Merry Monday everyone! Did you have good weekends? I had another weekend of birthday celebrations which is always a winner.

Motivational Monday | Sprinkle of Glitter

Today's Motivational Monday (from HERE) is self explanatory and chipper. 

I think we've talked about this before but happiness is infectious. You will know from when you have spent time with a really positive, bubbly person that you have come away feeling all the better for it and with a little more joy in your heart. Well, be that person for someone else today. Give a little joy.

I'm not suggesting jumping up on your desk and doing the cancan, but what about a friendly smile and a 'how was your weekend?' to someone who looks like they could use a bit of friendship? Or how about gladly making someone a cup of tea without them asking or hinting? Tiny things like that take such little effort but the effect of them goes so far- it's 'happiness efficient' if you will!

So today, see if you can do two or three happy things for someone else that you know will spread the joy. I'm going to text a friend to say I'm thinking about her, put my neighbour's bin back for them when the men have emptied it and ask the man who runs the corner shop how his day has been (and be genuinely interested in his answer- no point faking it). Little things, big results. 

What about you? What will you do?




Toodlepip!

  10. Aw made me smile :) I always start Mondays by asking people at work how their weekend was. I make sure I'm always smiling and talking in a bright bubbly tone.

    I had a long weekend so I don't go back to work until tomorrow, which was awesome! I pretty much spent the whole weekend cooking and baking, and catching up on YouTube videos that I'm subscribed to, and updating my blog!

    Great post as always♥ Happy Monday!

  12. Thank you for this reminder,
    Today I took my friend out for a delicious lunch and had a chat with the old lady next door. I also have helped some friends with their assignments at uni.

    I agree with Tean, your vlog on self harm was very well done and informative.

  35. Love this post! Today I've told two of my good friends that I love them, made my mum some tea and helped clean the house up without being asked! Also I helped a friend with their uni assignment and asked some people how their day was going as my dog sniffed their dog's butt... despite a stressful day at uni, today has been a pretty good Monday! :D It's so important to spread happiness!

  53. This is another post I definitely agree on! In general I just try to act slightly happier than perhaps I am - happiness can be a state of mind and faking it can sometimes get you there. It also means the people around me can feed off of my positivity too. That way everyone is slightly happier and (sorry for the cheese) makes the world a better place! :)

  54. I don't know what I'll do, but someone playing the piano in St Pancras station shared his happiness today. It's infectious! :)

  55. today it was a very very very bad day for me, i woke up so sad and i couldnt get myself to stop crying to go to class... so i asked a friend if she fancied a cake on the riverside since the sun was so nice n warm... she said yes and that cinnamon bun definitely cheered me up. i know i did nothing to make someone happy but, well, if i'm happy i can hopefully cheer up other people too. better than dealing with a sad or grumpy barbs, right? ^^ love your mondays!
