Grace has a great post up today over at Design*Sponge about music to start your day with, and as I was leaving my comment about the songs that never fail to get me going (“Blame It On The Boogie” by the Jacksons and “Push” by the Cure), I decided that I’m going to let the mood of this video dictate my attitude for this entire week. Or at least the rest of today. Or even just this morning. I’ll do the best I can!
I’m a strong believer in the idea that if you pretend to be enthusiastic about something, you will eventually find yourself actually becoming engaged and genuinely happy to be doing what you’re doing. I tend to be super-cynical about so much in life, and that cynicism (of course) inevitably leads to feeling grouchy and put-out over having to do all of the things that need to be done over the course of a day. Even the most tedious of tasks (I’m looking at a stack of invoices as I write this) is more fun if you fake having a good time.
Not that Mike and the boys are faking it here, of course, but really…I need to let the dirty rhythm move me and get on with my day, already. More boogie, less whining!
