⛅ Life got you down? Try a "heck yeah" list

Also, the best McDonald's ever, Twitter, getting off your ass, and learning to rest.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend (for my American friends out there)! Here are 5 things I found that made me happy this past week.

1.📝 Feeling bummed lately? Try a “heck yeah” list.

This is something I’ve been experimenting with lately. Each night, write down 3 things that made you say “heck yeah!” during the day (finding a penny heads-side-up, dog excited to see you, completed a task you were dreading, etc). Keep a journal or put them on little pieces of paper and throw them in a jar.

It’s a great way to practice gratitude and focus on the good instead of the bad.

2.🍟🎤 Best McDonald’s Drive-Thru Ever?

“Lunchtime is showtime” for Daniel Marshall, who sings for every customer who orders through his window. But, there’s also much more to his story than meets the eye. Watch how Daniel brings happiness to people here on YouTube.

3.🐦If you’re interested in getting more Twitter followers

The other week, I bought the Ultimate Twitter Threads System, a $9 course by Blake Emal (CMO of Copy.ai), to up my Twitter game. Probably the most value I’ve ever gotten out of $9 in my life. I’m not an affiliate, just a satisfied customer of the course.

4.🚢Favorite Essay of the Week

Another week publishing 7 of 7 essays as part of the 30-day writing challenge I embarked on. This one was my favorite of the week.

5. Quote I’m thinking about

“If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit.”Banksy

That’s all for this week’s newsletter. Hope you enjoyed it!
