Well, it has certainly been a while since we started the week with a Rock Out! But reading the newspaper, it is clear we will need more than doom and gloom if we are going to spend this week creating the future of our communities!
For those new to the Monday Morning Rock Out, welcome! Grab a cup of coffee, and spend the next 5 minutes getting your juices flowing, so you can get out there and change the world!
Pollyanna Principle #3 (sneak preview!) says, “Everything and everyone is interconnected and interdependent, whether we acknowledge that or not.”
Everyone. Everything. Around the whole world.
Playing for Change, the folks who created this effort, is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect and bring peace to the world through music.
And oh does that inspired connection feel good! Each of these individuals, across the seas and the skies, is joyfully connecting to each other and to each of us, sitting at our desks right now. And we are all smiling.
Smiles connect us. Songs connect us. Joy connects us. And research has shown that such happiness is contagious – that it is actually more contagious than sadness!
So this week, tap into something joyful and connected. Sing out loud. Go see Happy Go Lucky. Breathe deep and smile at the moment you have been given.
Then share that smile with the people you work with, the clients you help, the cashier at the convenience store. You’ll be creating their future, and your own.
Have a great Monday and a great week, all!
