If you’ve ever had an epically crappy day, then you know that it can sometimes be hard to find something to smile about. If you’ve never had a truly awful day, then I don’t believe you. I’ve been thinking recently that I wish I were the sort of person to always find a silver lining in everything – never lacking a reason to crack a smile.
I’ve decided I’m on a mission to become that person. Mainly, I want to look even crazier than usual by smiling and laughing when I’m by myself. Don’t stare – it’s rude. ;D Really though, I got to thinking that it’s not that hard to create a moment of good in an otherwise shady day.
You’ve had a long day at work/class/whatevs, and you get into your car to drive home in traffic. LAME!
Here’s how you de-lame it: When you pull into the parking lot in the morning, click through your favorite CD until you find the best song on the disc. You need a song that’s gonna make you smile. Once you find that song, turn the car off. Go to work. Forget about it.
Get in the car, turn the key, and BAM – BEST SONG EVER just happens to be playing!!! It’s way better than tuning into an auto parts commercial. Try it. It’s like leaving $5 in your coat pocket to find next winter. Only more instant gratification.
