This Week’s Lesson
If you’re not happy, do something about it!
-Courtney S’ life lesson from Ainsworth, Iowa
One of my favorite bands, Switchfoot, has a song called, “Happy is a Yuppie Word.” Their point was that it isn’t so much if you’re happy or not, for them it was matter of being blessed. For me, it is easy for me to say, “Yes, absolutely I am blessed!
Last week I had the great fortune to spend a few hours with the attendees of the Beyond Rubies Conference at Kirkwood Community College. They were a wonderful group and I believe they energized me more than I energized them. I am truly blessed to have spent that time with them. But upon coming back home, I was inundated with emails and to-do lists and basketball to watch! I decided Sunday morning to make sure to relax and enjoy the sunrise on my porch. Tiny little things like that can make all the difference.
I was starting to get stressed… but that hour on the porch made all the difference for my Sunday. If you’re feeling down today, do something about it! Take control and do something for you tonight. Nothing is going to stop you. Be happy and feel the blessings in your life.
