Motivational Monday January 27 2014 – Warm Smiles

on January 27, 2014

We had some really frigid weather this past week in Virginia.  It brought me back to all of the cold winters growing up in Connecticut.  I loved the snow as a kid.  Snowmen, sledding and best of all no school!

As I grew (and even more so when I moved south) I have kind of lost my love of the cold and snow.  It went from fun, fun, fun to more about shoveling, heating up the car and driving in unfavorable conditions.  But last week I watched my kids smiling and happy as could be. playing outside in the snow having a great time, and not caring one bit about the cold.

It has reminded me that it’s not about how cold the weather is, it’s about your attitude toward it.   I also thought about the wonder and love their warm smiles brought to the cold winter day.

I goggled the word warmth, just to see if I could find some inspiration in the cold that surrounded me.  I found this beautiful quote from poet Dejan Stojanovi:



How about we all give someone a warm smile this Monday. 🙂
