Why I Tweet
I tweet to myself.
These tweets are my own words for ideas that are not my own.
I have created these tweets as reminders to myself to keep me on my path and remind me how far I have come. I share them with you in case they are the right words you need to hear at this moment in time. I am humbled by how many retweets and favorites I get everyday. I am so glad that they resonate with others as they resonated with me when I wrote them.
I use an automated tool, StatusBrew to continuously loop these tweets. I started with one, and have added to them over the years. I periodically create new tweets that I add to this tool, though I do tweet occasionally a thought or inspiration only for that day.
It is with my love for humanity that I truly wish you peace, prosperity and happiness.
p.s. You will note that my Twitter name is Jude Tousignant. Jude it my middle name and was given to me by my mother to honor the Catholic Saint Jude, the patron saint of lost causes. When I was born I was early and I did not have fully developed lungs. Back then, this was extremely high-risk and my life expectancy was low. Also, they did not let the parents see the baby at all while they were in an incubator. My mother didn’t see me for the first 7 days of my life so she prayed to Saint Jude everyday… and here I am.
I grew up embarrassed of my middle name, what we call bullying today was called teasing then and whenever anybody learned my name, I was incessantly teased so I hid it as much as possible. As an adult, I embrace it. It represents so many different aspects of my life: a recognition of my spiritual side coupled with the respect that if not for modern technology I would not be alive.
p.s.s. I don’t like the glibness that “namaste” has today from mainstream media, but as a term it has no replacement when you consider the definition I subscribe to for namaste is “the divine in me recognizes the divine in you.”
