The things that can make your day!!!
When I first started with my company as a customer service representative, one of the motto's we were to live by was to make that their (the customer's) day. But we also knew before we could do this we had to have the right attitude. How are we to make someone's day when our day is going so bad? Well there's the fake it till you make it principle. (Act like your happy, until the work is done.)There's the denial principle, which is similar to fake it till you make it, but this one is trickier, you deny everything that is bad and avoid facing it. Or we can change our attitude, choose to be happy and look for the good in everything. Sounds easier said then done. Having a poor attitude is not sexy, I mean attractive at all. But when someone is optimistic, hopeful, and happy, you can take it for granted you are in good company. Sometimes it is the simple things in life that just can make your day. A simple hello, or even better an I love you from someone you care about. I find that the ones that my day are the ones that are always wondering how you're doing. The ones out of the blue that tell you via facebook, text, or chat, that they're thinking about you. Not to take anything away from those that do that everyday! I love those also! Remember the movie Evan Almighty? With Steve Carell? *SPOILER ALERT* ..............At the very end Morgan Freeman who plays God, writes the word ARK, and points out that it's an acronym (for those readers that are too lazy to look up what the word acronym means...) here's the definition: a word formed from the initial letters or groups of letters of words in a set phrase or series of words, as Wac from Women's army Corps, OPEC from Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, or loran from long-range navigation. Well ARK stands for Act of Random Kindness. In making someone's day, we in turn get our day made.
