Contagious can be associated with some rather icky thoughts and feelings, especially when you see someone sneeze all over his/her hands and immediately extend that hand for a shake…icky.
Or when you go to the doctor for a wellness exam and someone in the lobby looks two steps from death due to illness…ugh. Needless to say, I’m clearly a person who gets the heebie-jeebies from most things contagious.

However, there are many things contagious that I rather do enjoy…like laughter for example, man, I sure do love a good laugh. Or how about a smile; sometimes even when I’m having a super grumpy day a smile, even from a stranger, makes everything feel a little less grey. Even your attitude can be contagious. When I come home in a stormy mood it doesn’t take long before my attitude has rubbed off on the hubs. Thankfully, the same applies for a super good attitude as well! When I consider the word contagious from this perspective, I’m definitely encouraged to make sure I’m carrying something worth catching.
How does that old saying go? Oh, that’s right…’laughter is the best medicine’. So today and always, I hope to spread my smile, laugh a little more infectiously, and make my positive attitude an epidemic
And I hope you'll do the same!
