My cheerfulness is contagious.

I have many choices to make on any given day. One of the major decisions I make is the mood that I portray throughout the day.

When I get up in the morning, I consciously opt to be cheerful. I am cheerful because it makes my life more fun and interesting. Plus, I make it through the day like a champ when I am cheerful.

But the really cool thing about my cheerfulness is that it spreads to those around me. I see that I can have a profound effect on those around me simply by choosing to be cheerful.

When I am cheerful, it challenges those who are grumpy. It is more difficult for others who are nearby to complain and be negative whenever I am in a cheerful mood.

I smile, compliment others, and take any bumps in the road in stride.

Being cheerful makes me feel like an emotionally stronger human being. I refuse to allow the Negative Neds and Nellies of the world to pull me down. Instead, I turn on the light in my eyes and grin.

I use an interested tone of voice. I show my good mood. And when I do, people around me do the same.

Today, I intend to remain cheerful all day. I notice how my cheerfulness affects others and I am pleased that I have the ability to make a positive impact on their lives.

I truly am a happier, more fulfilled individual because I choose to be cheerful and by doing so, I lead the way for others to be cheerful as well.
