Make your first impression optimistic

Today's choice for Music Sunday at Experience Optimism is "Troublemaker" by Olly Murs, featuring Flo Rida.

As Forrest Gump would say, I chose this video for no particular reason. Well perhaps that's not true. I liked the beat, and the artist, unknown to me until today, is pretty darn cute.

Is that how we choose our music? Is that how we choose those we let into our lives? Are those who are cute and easy to listen to more apt to make friends than those who aren't? All are rhetorical questions for, to some degree, we know it's true. We like to be around those who make us smile and sometimes the first impression is the only amount of time that we get to make a connection.

Optimists should have that first impression down pat. "Optimism, it's all in our name," should open doors to people who are ready to listen and ready to partake. Friends, it's your task to take the next step. Bring your smile, offer up some fun activities, and demonstrate that positive actions can make a difference. Follow these steps and you'll be adding new members to your Optimist Club in no time at all.

And if and when your optimism wanes, and it will, perk up your day with a happy song. Sing along, smile and share it with others - share your optimism. Others need it as much as you.
