How to make people smile and brighten your own day

OMG-amazingA year ago I bought this sweatshirt as part of a fundraiser. I liked the positive message, and I liked supporting a worthwhile cause.

When I put it on and look in a mirror, it lifts my spirits. I think, “Oh, my God. I AM amazing!”

Never fails to brighten my day.

Best of all, when I wear it out in public, people look at me and smile. Everywhere I go—the grocery store, the mailbox, the corner coffee shop—people read the shirt, look at me and give me a big smile.

Never fails to really brighten my day.  

When I wear it and reap the rewards I think, “This makes me feel so good. How bad must people feel when they wear T-shirts with negative messages on them?”

How does what you wear make you feel? How does what you wear make other people feel, and how much of that is reflected back on to you?

Something to think about. And never forget, Oh, my God. You really ARE amazing!
