Many times in life we have the tendency to do the same things over and over again. We get up, get dressed, go to work, come home, and go to bed. Sounds pretty boring, right? Well of course it is!!
One thing that Trimble and Twitch remind of everyday is that Every Single Day is a New Day! Every day they wake up and they are excited to see what the day holds. It is like a new beginning every day.
As humans, we become very methodical just plodding through life with no real intention. We begin to get mad about little things, we complain about things of no real consequence, we lose touch with those we care about.
So here’s our advise….Stop. Just stop. Wake up and greet each day and wonder what it holds for you. It doesn’t mean you have to travel or spend extravagantly on adventures. It only means these four things.
- Be Intentional. Live with purpose. Find your purpose. It may be to smile at everyone you meet. It could be something more active like rescuing puppers or kitties. It could even be as simple as calling an old friend once a week. Just be intentional in your actions. Always positive interactions!
- When life is hard, and it will be from time to time, remember the things that matter. The people and things in your life that you love. We see people ALL the time getting so angry over things that won’t matter tomorrow much less 5 minutes from now. It is worse on social media. Every one is allowed an opinion. Every last person. It doesn’t mean you have to agree it only means you have to acknowledge that they have views and values that are different than yours. Don’t stress over it. Don’t get angry over it. If it doesn’t directly affect your life tomorrow then it is not worth your today.
- Stay in touch. Just by the nature of our busy lives these days we lose touch with our most precious relationships. We say we will call later, but later never gets here. Don’t isolate yourself into no meaningful relationships with those who are important to you. Make the phone call, have the lunch, or spend the time. Life is about relationships and interactions. Make them happen. You are sure to acquire lots of smiles and warm fuzzies!
- Lastly, be adventurous! Don’t be afraid to try new things- people, food, activities! Don’t let your life by and “I wish I had ….”. Do it! Slide down the slide, go to the ball game, and overcome the fear of the unknown. I see this in TNT all the time! Explore the world and let your mind relax in the knowledge that you are gaining humanity by every last experience.
All of these things will contribute to a more pawsitive outlook and a life that is filled with wonder and love for all the fun parts of life. We aren’t saying that it’s all rainbows and lollipops…but most of it can be if you put a little effort into it!
Love to All and BE INTENTIONAL!!
