So I today I worked in my new job/career that required me to smile and talk to people ALL DAY LONG. As an archaeologist I didn’t have to do any of that before. I just showed up at the crack of dawn, went out into the field, dug my holes and honestly you could work 12 hours not talking. I was a bit skeptical of my endurance to be polite and friendly but surprisingly I was quite optimistic! I managed to stay upbeat all day and even when the day slowed down, I was positive and still smiling. What I attribute to that is not only my great attitude but more importantly the muscle memory of my face. The physical memory of your face remembers that when it smiles, it’s happy. So literally when you physically smile, you can’t help but cheer up! Seriously! I’m not even one of those super cheerful people! Like mornings are one of the worst inventions ever and there are just some days I put my phone on airplane mode so I can hibernate! So if I can turn my frown upside down and try smiling to see to my mood lifts . . . YOU CAN TOO! Make a note of it. If today you start feeling frustrated or down, try smiling and counting to ten. You may have to do this a few times but at the end of it you should feel a lot better than before!!!

Hey my name is C_Money aka The Muse. So hopefully you can read what I write, feel what I say, and if I can positively influence you in any kind of way, I am completely grateful. I’m black and Korean. Grew up in many different places. I feel that has made me a more rounded individual who’s more open to change or different possibilities. I’m definitely no where near perfect nor do I know it all. I’m just a regular person striving to better myself and my life. I grind because I want more. I want to reach my full potential. It’s not enough to want. I’m going to work, pray, love, eat and move towards a greater life. I’m doing that for me. I want to truly love where I’m headed, so I grind. View all posts by C Money
