I feel silly admitting this, but I used to be one of those people who thought a person had no control of how they woke up in the morning. It seems ridiculous, right? But really, it was an aha moment when I realized I could choose how I would wake up each day. And I choose happy!

I make a conscious choice every morning to wake up with a smile and be happy! It is the first thing I do each day. This choice is a powerful thing. It starts my day in the right direction and it reminds me that I am in charge of my day – me! This choice also resets me for a new day. No matter what happened yesterday, today I choose happy.

This important morning choice also affects those around me. Smiles are contagious; happiness spreads. If people I come in contact with forgot to choose how they wanted to start their day, no worries because I am there with my smile! Hopefully, this makes others happy too!
