"You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face and show the world all the love in your heart, then people gonna treat you better. You're gonna find, yes you will, that you're beautiful as you feel."
--- Carol King There's magic in behaving the way we want to be, even though we don't yet feel it. The behavior seems to lead the way. The attitude, the mental state, follows.
Many days we may not get up with love in our hearts for our family, our friends, our co-workers. We may, in fact, want them to show their love for us first. But if we reach out, give love unconditionally and focus on another's needs, love will return tenfold and the act of loving them will lift our own spirits.
We will know love; we will feel love for ourselves and for many other people close to us. The attitude we cultivate, whether one of love or selfishness, inferiority or superiority, will determine how the events of our lives affect us.
The principle is so simple. If we meet life with love, with a smile, we'll find love and something to smile about. My attitude will make this day what it becomes. Meeting it head-on, with love, will assure me of a lovely day.
