True That! – The Happy Sanguine

Happiness is in the heart, not in the circumstances.

No people displays this better than the sanguine personalities of the world. The world giggles because of these people. They are the bright spot in many a bland day.

I remember a time I was scolding my young sanguine son. I was bent over looking him eye-to-eye and my finger was a waggin’ with discipline. Then it happened. He started crossing his eyes and waggin’ his head slowly back and forth. What could I do but giggle as a smile crossed my face. Typical sanguine . . . putting a fun spin on a no-so-fun situation.

Take time to give a hug or a high-five to a sanguine today. Sometimes their sunny disposition can be a little too much, but enjoy them for who they are. The world needs these people to us see the world as a happy place. They are wired that way.
