Start your day with a song. Sing your favorite lyric out loud or in your heart. It will be a nutrient for your soul. Here are a few of my favorites. These may put a smile on your face.
From Disney: It’s a small world after all. It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears. It’s a world of hopes and a world of fears. There is just one moon and one golden sun and a smile means friendship to everyone. (Then repeat four times: It’s a small world after all, etc.)
Or, from the musical Oklahoma: Oh what a beautiful morning – Oh what a beautiful day – I’ve got a wonderful feeling, everything’s going my way. There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow. There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow. the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye, and it looks like its climbin’ clear up to the sky –
Or, should it be your birthday, choose Las Mananitas. In Mexico it’s sung before the cake is cut. The words are perfect for its lovely melody. Here’s a verse or two: How lovely is the morning in which I (we)come to greet you. We all come with joy and pleasure to congratulate you. The day you were born all the flowers were born. On the baptismal font the nightingales sang. the morning is coming now, the sun is giving us its light. Get up in the morning, look it is already dawn.
I would like to be the sunshine to enter through your window to wish you good morning while you’re lying in your bed — Of the stars in the sky I have to lower two for you. One with which to greet you and the other to wish you goodbye. With jasmines and flowers we come to greet you because today is your saint’s day, we come to sing to you.
Be refreshed and light-hearted then send your smile to the people around you.
