Take a moment and check your Twitter history, is it full of insightful tips on gardening or full of #FirstWorldProblems and complaints about human existence. Much like our Twitter feeds our minds can be racked with bad feelings and pessimism, which is only natural, we are human after all. But now something is here to brighten up your week, it's Happy Happy Fun Time Twitter Day on Twitter, or so proclaim @James_LRR. Most of my friends know I'm a huge Loading Ready Run fan and thus I follow most of the cast on Twitter. I saw James' post this morning around midnight and thought it was a spectacular idea; make Twitter a positive place for at least one day.
So I posted about the fact that I was watching Star Wars Episode 6 and drawing and then I went to bed. Upon waking up this morning I got onto Twitter as is my usually routine (gotta find fodder for my comic somewhere right?) and remembered Happy Happy Fun Time Twitter Day. So I thought about my week and something positive I could say about it and in all honesty this made me look at my week in a completely different light. Too often are we bogged down by other people's negativity that we don't notice ourselves being drawn in and falling into a funk. Following the hashtag #HHFTTD will reveal to you a plethora of awesome positivity that is sure to brighten your day and hopefully help you see the world in a slightly brighter way. So I plan on making Happy Happy Fun Time Twitter Day a more regular thing by thinking about my posts and at least trying to add a positive spin to my complaints if I'm going to make them, and let's face it I still will complain (again, human). But by trying to make the internet a more positive place I think that we can make our minds a more positive place as well and thus making our lives better. I hope you will join me by making your Twitter/Facebook/Google+/MySpace/Etc. a more positive place to be and thereby making your mind a more positive place. So thank you James for making my day, and my Twitter feed, just a little bit brighter.
