Cheer up with cheerfulness & playfulness

When you feel like there’s no way to cheer yourself up, do something kind to help someone else cheer up.

The best way to face the day is with a cheerful face.

Cheerfulness is a happiness multiplier that spreads joy and lights up people’s day.

The more cheerfulness that you give away, the more happiness you enjoy!

Cheerfulness consists of a warm heart, bright eyes, smiles, peace, and joy.

Joy will surprise you,
If you learn every day
How to appreciate
The gift of now.

Life lived with cheerfulness is more enjoyable than life lived without it.

When someone says that you’re too cheerful, that means they’re jealous of your joy.

A day without cheerfulness tends to get weary. Learn to be a little cheery and life wont’ be so dreary.

Sometimes cheerfulness requires determination.

If you want to be happy, choose and begin to daily implement a practical strategy for becoming more cheerful.

People need the freedom to be playfully spontaneous. Without it we tend to wither into lifeless agendas and passive programs.

Spontaneous, creative play offers experiential knowledge that mere lectures can’t achieve.

A playful attitude can help you learn to turn everyday situations into enjoyable and uplifting experiences.

Playfulness is the ability to be openly and actively cheerful about simple little things.

Much that we call creativity is simple playfulness–playing with words, ideas, numbers, thoughts, emotions, paint, music, etc.

Spontaneous playfulness is a stream of creativity that flows from deep within, that anyone can tap into.

If playfulness is a form of immaturity, then creativity is, too, because they’re basically the same thing.

Unprogrammed, spontaneous play can open up an inner flow of joy in both children and adults.

By viewing adult play as organized, serious, and even competitive, adults tend to miss out on the stress relief of harmless silliness.

Being playful isn’t just silly. A “play-cebo” (a little bit of playfulness) has many psychological benefits.

When Jesus said to be like a little child, I think He meant: openness, playfulness, innocence, cheerfulness, and humility.

If you watch small children, you’ll find playfulness. If you join in their fun, you’ll find playfulness inside yourself.

A little friendly playfulness (a “play-cebo”) can make any environment less stressful–even the US Congress.

I think that if American Congressional Republicans and Democrats would pair up and play rock paper scissors together, they could overcome their egos

When you find yourself whistling, cheerfulness is spontaneously flowing from within you. Don’t stop it!

People spend a lot of money to beautify their face, but cheerfulness does a better job, and it’s free!

Cheerfulness isn’t natural for me, but everyday I consciously choose to try to think and act with joy, no matter how I feel.

When you fell threatened by someone, responding cheerfully rather than fearfully will usually produce a better outcome.

Choose entertainment that inspires you to be cheerful, rather than that which merely distracts you from your life.

A bird’s chirp can cheer your up, but only if it’s noticed and appreciated.

Being high or inebriated is a poor substitute for heart-felt, genuine joy. 

You’re blessed.
Be hopeful;
Be cheerful;
Be grateful;
Be buoyant;
Be glad!

Cheerfulness or gloom?
Hope or fume?
The mindset I consume,
Will color my room.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
