Happiness is shared 🙂 Adapt this way of life with our kids! Makes all of life smoother and helps piano practice time come easier 🙂
Many times, we would zip through the day or sometimes laze away the day without giving it much thought. We simply go through the motions and before we know it, the day has come to an end. Then, we begin the next day, repeating the cycle.
How about this? Let’s break the cycle and consciously choose to do one nice thing today. It can be something as simple as giving a smile to a stranger, holding the door for someone, giving a co-worker a pat on the shoulder, writing a thank-you note, inviting a new colleague for lunch, offering a listening ear, giving the right of way, guiding a tourist who has lost her way, listening to your child practice piano with a smile, forgiving the waiter who has spilled water over you . . .
Your act may not mean very much to you, but to the recipients, you can never know — it may mean a world of difference. Your gracious act will certainly brighten their day and in some instances, may even bring comfort, help soothe pain, provide hope, motivate and inspire. Just a simple act can sometimes trigger a chain of positive reactions, touching many others along the way.
Take your time. Don’t rush things. Gradually you may find yourself doing two, three . . . nice things a day and in no time it will become a part of you as you breeze through your day. As you focus on making things easier for those around you, you will inevitably find yourself smiling more and walking lighter.
It only takes a small step to begin. Once you make the first move, the rest will be easier. Why not make a difference while you can, for as long as you can? All it takes is just to do one nice thing today.
You and your child will benefit greatly from smiling and piano practice will become a happier time.
