The (Free) Service I Use To Jumpstart My Weekdays
Step aside, coffee! OK not really, but maybe take a back seat to Shine Text. For me, positivity totally falls under the "fake it til you make it" category. Truth be told, I've spent years working on my attitude and outlook on life. Some people have the "happy gene", as we call it in my family, and others have to work like hell to be happy. I had to work like hell to get here. I was born with the worry gene so positivity and self-esteem don't come naturally to me. I have to work hard at both of those things every day.
Enter my love of Shine Text. Shine Text is a free, YES FREE motivational text service that will send you a positive, encouraging text message every morning during the week. I've been getting texts from them for months and really, I look forward to it every day. It has become the highlight of my mornings.
Here are a few of my recent texts from Shine:
"It's human to want to 'fix' all our problems, Callie. But a *creation mindset* helps us see opportunities. Create > ruminate today."
"Good day, Callie"? Hope so. :) Remember: if 1 thing goes awry (spilled coffee?), it's not a 'bad' one. Today, isolate the incident."
"When we feel emotionally distant, we may be doing too much at once. Nix multitasking, Callie; give today your undivided attention."
