Reasons to be Cheerful

The world is not doing particularly well at the moment…. but…. in this blog, this is my final word on the subject.

This part of your day – for those of you reading this – is about ‘reasons to be cheerful’.

I’m hoping that people will respond to this and add their own idea of what has made them happy or feel positive in recent weeks and to share that with the LinkedIn audience.

Soooo.…if I can start the ball rolling.

Every day there is my dog, happy cheerful little lady that she is. Chasing leaves, finding hedgehogs, watching worms …there’s a lot to be learned from her life. If she’s been fed and has had a poop, she’s happy…I know a few people that could adopt that attitude and it would serve them well.

But that’s too easy to call and not really work related.

My ‘reason to be cheerful’ is a certain young member of our team at Japanese Knotweed Solutions. I won’t embarrass her by naming her – but she knows who she is.

She just gets it. She gets what work life is all about and she just smashes it every day. She’s always keen, always smiling, never has a bad day and just knocks the ball out of the park with everything that she does.

In a world of mediocrity, she is just a shining star – and it gives me hope for the future.

There are so many times that life just lets you down, it’s great to see that there are still people coming through the system that haven’t been beaten by the barrage of crap that life throws at you.

So, my number one reason to be cheerful is Kate Hilton …ooops dropped her name in.

So, what’s your reason to be cheerful?????

Let’s try to make this the positive message to start the day with.
