My Happiness Campaign

My office is the most dismal, dreadful cube farm of depression and disinterest. Some days it’s down right difficult to make myself walk through the doors. Not too long ago, I took it upon myself to put up positive quotes on wipe boards around the office.

Something struck me today, and I’ve decided I’m going to covertly decorate the hall that leads into our department. I have a willing accomplice. At this point our thought is something akin to the yellow brick road with positive, non-denominational quotes throughout.

I’m putting the call out to writers, reader, friends, and happy folks to send me your favorite positive and uplifting quotes. I’m not on Facebook, Twitter, or twatnot, so please spread the word far and wide, for anyone to leave a happy comment here.

I’m going to leave you with my most recent merry message to the masses…

“A great attitude becomes a great mood. A great mood becomes a great day. A great day becomes a great year. A great year becomes a great life.”

  1. Look to this day!
    For it is life, the very life of life.
    In its brief course
    Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
    The bliss of growth;
    The glory of action;
    The splendor of achievement;
    For yesterday is but a dream,
    And tomorrow is only a vision;
    But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
    a dream of happiness,
    And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
    Look well, therefore to this day,
    This is the Salutation To The Dawn.

    Don’t you people talk in office? I used to do that all the time and we used to take multiple breaks for coffee and whatnot, no wonder I took retirement at an age of 27.

    I hope this would make your office a better place Lula,

    Anand 🙂


    1. That is a beautiful poem and most fitting. Thanks!

      I’m relatively new to this particular office and have nothing in common with my coworkers. They spend a tremendous amount of time standing around talking and gossiping, because they don’t care about the quality of their work. Why do a good job when no one else cares is the general attitude of the department and it’s sad.

      1. Dear Lula,
        I am nobody, just a remote friend and well-wisher. I am suggesting something and please overlook if you don’t like. 🙂
        You can always find similarities and positives if you want to. No matter which parts of world we come from we are essentially same at heart–made of one love.

        If you approach people with smile and open heart and start taking initiative to talk you would find many of them becoming your friend and then life becomes easier. It’s something I learned from my experiences 🙂

      2. Thank you for your thoughts. I do appreciate them. I’m friendly with my coworkers and I walk around with a smile and speak to everyone, but am trying desperately not to get sucked into their malaise. It seems the longer you are in this department the less you care about the quality of your work. With my happiness campaign I’m trying to bring them around to doing better and feeling better about what we do in the workplace.
