Words of Wisdom Wednesdays: Cheerful

Posted on 25 April 2012 by CharlesN







“No words can do justice to their courage and their cheerfulness.  To be brave cheerily, to be patient with a glad heart, to stand the agonies of thirst with laughter and song, to walk beside Death for months and never be sad- that’s the spirit that makes courage worth having.  I loved my men.”  – Lord Robert Baden-Powell

Being able to keep a smile on your face, even in the midst of adversities, is truly admirable.  Think of a time when you just weren’t having fun.  Say, for example, camping in a rain storm and everything inside the tent got soaked.  Were you angry?  Did someone try to cheer you up?

Even though times may be tough, a cheerful company lightens up the atmosphere.  Remember, attitude is very important.
