Remember that commercial slogan “You deserve a break today”? Well, I was at my neighborhood co-working space and I told the owner I was headed to the movies – on a Wednesday night. He instantly smiled and with great enthusiasm, said, “You mean you’re not working tonight? Good for you!” It made me laugh. I said, “I’m not always working.”

He followed with, “You really made my day!” He was truly happy for me that I was going to the movies on a Wednesday night! I felt his happiness for me. It’s not a huge deal and I do take time off, but the enthusiasm he shared was quite contagious. 

I’m going to try it. I’m going to be really happy for someone else’s minor accomplishment! Will you join me?

Let me know how it goes. I think I will be overjoyed for you 😉
