Many of you follow me on twitter – for those that don’t, I’m @calevans. For those that have been following me for a while, you know that I start most mornings off with a good morning tweet. My good morning tweets usually encourage you to make it a good day, do something for someone else, or just generally stop and smell the roses once in a while.
People ask me all the time “How are you able to be that upbeat, that early in the morning?”. It’s really simple, I am not. See most people miss the purpose of those tweets. They aren’t for everyone else, they are for me. They are to remind me of things like:
- I can’t control what people do to me today, I can only control how I respond.
- This life is short, make every day count
- Days are what you make of them
- Helping other people is one of the best ways to spend a day
I am sorry to be so narcissistic but I don’t tweet to remind you to make it a great day, I tweet to remind myself – even of the days I really don’t want to – to get my fat butt out of bed and get going.
This may not work for you. I’ve found that tweeting a positive good morning message helps shape my attitude, and thus my day.
“There’s a good day out there for everyone – even if you need a pickaxe, a compass, and night goggles to find it.”
I know how cheesy this sounds, but I try to tell myself this every morning.
“Find a way to make it a great day, because today is the only today you will ever have.”
It works for me. :)
Until next time,
I <3 |<
p.s. Original quote from LA Story is “There’s someone out there for everyone – even if you need a pickaxe, a compass, and night goggles to find them.”
