Look on the bright side

You may have heard the song: Always look on the bright side of life… (Whistle, whistle, whistle, whistle)

I remember learning to whistle as a child, it took some coaching and a few tries to get it just right. I enjoy the people who can grab a blade of grass and put it between their thumbs blow and it whistles. More impressive are the people who can really whistle, loud, shrills through their fingers at a concert…comes in handy as a fan cheering for your favourite sports team, artist and musicians, or the cute girl walking by a construction site.

As I look out my window this am the morning dew is on the blades of grass a soft breeze is blowing the flowers swaying gently and the sun flowers a gift from the birds or the squirrels or the chipmunks stand tall solid, looking on the bright side towards the awakening sun. I love that the sunflowers know which way to face. Filling their core, roots with the warmth of sunshine.

You can look on the bright side too.

Grab a chair, park it in the direction of the sunshine and let your body fill up with the warmth of the sun. We can all use more Vitamin D, take it in and enjoy your sunshine filled day.

It may put a bounce in your step and you may even catch yourself whistling while you work.
