Some days I wake up very tired.
I’ve slept well, but seem like it’s hard to get the day going.
Have you ever felt that way?
Sometimes I want to just crawl back into bed and pull the covers over my head, but I force myself up since I’ve got people to do and things to see 🙂
As the great philosopher Gene Simmons said “any day above ground is a good day.” OK, maybe Gene is more of an iconic rock star than philosopher, but there is a lot of truth to that statement.
One thing I do almost every morning is listen to music. I’ve put together a playlist of songs to get me going in the morning, and the first one on the list is “It’s Such a Good Feeling” from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.
Might seem a little odd from a guy who likes rock n roll, but I love to remind myself that it’s such a good feeling to know I’m alive, and wake up ready to say “I think I’ll make a snappy new day” and yes, I snap my fingers each day when that part of the song comes on.
It also reminds me to make each day a special day in a special way… “by just you’re being yourself.”
Now since this is the “BEing Uniquely YOU” newsletter, I should probably be who I am, right?
I’ve found I can create a lot more content by speaking than I can writing. I also know Mr. Rogers didn’t send each of us kids a newsletter each day, he spoke to us on video… so since that’s what I prefer too, why not hear over to my website to get the rest of the story, including a video I did on this topic (see below).
Tune in and listen to more on the subject of feeling good by knowing you’re alive and how we can be grateful for every day.
