Reasons to be cheerful

It’s hard to believe, I know, but sometimes I can be a miserable, cynical, grumpy old git. In a (probably futile) attempt to counteract this tendency, I have resolved two things:

  1. I’m going to stop bitching about work. So if people ask me how work’s going, I shall at worst respond with “OK” before changing the subject. Power of positive thinking and all that. Note: this doesn’t mean I’ll necessarily stop bitching about people doing stupid things at work, just about work itself
  2. I’m going to make a concerted effort to find at least one thing, preferably more, to be thankful, cheerful or in some other way pleased about each day. To which end I have created a new twitter account from which to post happy-making things. I can’t promise this won’t sometimes be repetitive – I’m a simple creature, and the same things often cheer me up

Even if it has no followers ever, at least it will make me look for the sunshine on a rainy day.

Wonder how long it will last?

    Update: decided that having a separate account was futile, so have rolled it in to my personal account. For all the difference it makes.
