Look for a reason to smile #WriteBravely #LiveHappily

"In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and - snap! - the job's a game!" - Mary Poppins



When Tom Sawyer got other boys to paint the fence for him, and made money out of it too, the secret was making the job fun. So, Mary Poppins certainly had that fact right.

From drinking milk to finishing the food, from cleaning the room to getting reading on time, from studying to helping in chores, I have many memories from my childhood, and then from my parenting days that corroborate Mary Poppins' shrewd words.

Do these words hold as true for the jobs that the grown-ups hold, is a point of contention now?
The important words to be noticed are 'must be done'. So, the message for each of us here is, if there is something in which you don't have a choice, look for the element of fun in it. There is bound to be something - the work itself, the ones you share it with, the reason that you are doing it - that would make you smile through it.

The bottom line - Smile.
