Sunshine is Contagious!
When the sun is shining outside it automatically elevates my mood. Sunshine warms. It brings an essence of cheerfulness and joy. That is why we should make a conscious effort each day to spread sunshine. It’s contagious!
James Barrie, author of Peter Pan said:
“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.”
Imagine if everyone around you were doing something to bring spread sunshine and happiness to someone else. That sunshine that would dissipate the darkness and gloom that is being spread throughout the world. How is that possible? Because it starts with me. And it starts with you. The world is our own sphere of influence. Just like the sun is round, that sunshine will encircle us and envelope us and those around us.
Light is Powerful
The fact is, light is more powerful than darkness. We can overcome that darkness by radiating sunshine in our actions, our choices and our interactions with others.
President Gordon B. Hinckley said:
If the world is to be improved, the process of love must make a change in the hearts of men. It can do so when we look beyond self to give our love to God and others, and do so with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind.
Each of us has the power to spread sunshine that will make the world a little better.
