I have a small green model frog, a friend bought him back from Port Douglas for me, hence his name is Douglas.
Have you ever noticed how happy frogs look? Their big mouth and wide eyes? They always look like they are smiling.
So Douglas sits in an inconspicuous place in my car and when I feel road rage or car crabbiness or just general poopy-mood I look at Douglas…and yep….smile!
We all need reminders of the simple things, (I also have a bracelet that says follow your dreams but that’s for another day…) they’re called emotional triggers.
We have good triggers and sometimes bad – but what matters is that we can control them once we are aware of them. Set up some happy triggers in your life that remind you of the simple pleasures and, well, be like Douglas!
Have a smiley day…
