Put a smile on to cure that Funk!

Today I woke up on the wrong side of the bed! I had amazing sleep, I felt refreshed, but I just woke up in a poopy mood. I carpool to work with my coworker every morning and I didn’t really say a peep. I was deep in thought but I just kept trying to tell myself to snap out of it!
I get to work and I start doing my normal routine (clock in, put my lunch in the fridge of the break room, check emails, then get started). I just couldn’t get my mind right.
So my coworker was going to grab some breakfast and asked if I wanted to come along. I usually don’t go but today I said “ok”. We leave and I am still silent. I let him know that I’m not in a good mood and he says “oh lordy!” haha!. So he starts talking about his experience at a food trailer (there’s a lot of those where I live) and how amazing the food is and I can feel my spirits rising. If you know me and as you’ll learn I am IN LOVE with food! Food excites me! So as he’s going along with his story I am getting more and more intrigued and asking more questions and how I want to go and try it out.
We get to our destination and the cashier asks “how are you?” and I say “I’m good, how are you?” but I FORCED myself to smile. And not just a half way fake smile, a REAL smile. Almost instantly my attitude changes, I became more talkative and I even sparked a conversation with some strangers (who were musicians with awesome fashion sense might I add).
My point of telling you about my morning is that smiling is a great medicine for a funk! If you just can’t seem to get out of it, make yourself smile and laugh even. It works!
Have you smiled today yet?!
