Inquiring Minds

Did you ever wake up in the morning with a song in your head?  You know, that little ditty that you start singing in the shower with your eyes half open?  That song that starts in the shower but you sing all through the day?

Did you ever wake up hearing your husband or wife singing, “Don’t worry, be happy”?

Oh yes, this is their “Mantra for the Day”.  It gives you, the listener, insight into what might be in store for them for the day.  I consider it a window of opportunity to see what they really are thinking without them even knowing.  It’s all subliminal.

According to Wikipedia, a mantra is a sound, syllable, or group of words that are considered capable of “creating transformation”.  Their use and type varies according to the school and philosophy associated with the mantra.

That being said, don’t go into a meeting humming “I wish I were an Oscar Meyer Weiner” unless of course your job is in marketing and you are trying to sell the weiners.  Nor would I go to my mother-in-laws home whistling “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead”.  Not good.

Remember to pay attention because it could just change what you say and do during your day!
