Happiness is Contagious!!!

I really want to start working out again but I’m pretty sure that my body isn’t ready so I will just keep doing 44s and  pinning the great workouts that so many of y’all are sharing!

Today for my 44 I worked my shoulders with a front rotation.  I started with my arms at 90 (8 pound dumbbells – that was plenty for this many reps!).


From the starting position, I just rotated my arms until they were in front of me, palms down and then back up – all in a slow and controlled manner.


The first 18 or so weren’t bad but the rest were rough!!  My shoulders are always my weakest muscle and a few days of nothing hasn’t helped them!!!

Do other people’s moods affect your mood?  I know they do mine!!!  

Yesterday evening I had a showing (at our venue) for a bride and her photographer.  This bride has already booked the place for an April wedding and just wanted to plan a few things and have her photographer see the lighting situation.

While we were there, she showed me some of the pictures for her plans (gotta love Pinterest!) and asked my opinions.  She also showed me pictures of her dress and it was absolutely stunning!!!

It was like a happy dance just sharing a few minutes with this girl (not really a girl but she is much younger than me!!!).

I started thinking about how often we let other’s dictate our mood – sometimes not in a positive way.  Screen Shot 2013-12-18 at 6.41.08 AM

I think that happiness does grow when shared and is definitely contagious!!!  I really hadn’t been super excited about driving over yesterday afternoon (I always end up BLAH when I’m sick) but I left feeling so much better than I had in days!!!!

I want to be one of those people that exudes happiness and shares the happy germ with others!!!Screen Shot 2013-12-18 at 6.42.21 AM




Do you feel happier after being around people who are happiness carriers? 

HAPPY Wednesday!!
