Join me with #100SimpleJoys
Sometimes the world is crazy. I’ve found, during crazy times, it is always good practice to take a step back and recognize all the good in our lives too.
It can be hard to see the good when you might be losing your job, or people you love are sick, or when other bad things are happening.
That’s why I started this movement, the #100SimpleJoys movement.
When times are hard, my news feed blows up with all the negativity. While I am not naïve to reality at times, I would like to help spread a little more joy!
In a time where we are all locked down and staying close to home, inundated by fears and craziness, I wanted to send you an invitation.
I’ve started my own little movement, a practice I want to make a daily habit. I’m calling it #100SimpleJoys.
You see, I’ve immersed myself in all the stories about how the world is ending, runs on grocery stores, and keeping our loved ones well. While I am not naive to the gravity of it all, it’s depressing and can really bring a person down.
We can’t control everything around us, but there are some things we can control:
- We can control our attitudes.
- We can control how we see our world within the walls of our homes.
- We can control our gratitude, even among the crazy.
When I started to live a simpler life, I started to enjoy the mundane. It is the little, simple joys, that bring me the greatest happiness. I want to relish in those simple joys, and I want to set an example to my kids that fear doesn’t control me.
Since this whole outbreak isn’t likely to go away for a few months, I want to make sure I focus on all the good, at least once a day.
For the next 100 days, I want to focus on the simple joys. I want to look for moments of gratitude and happiness and document them. I want to spam the feed of my friends with joyful moments, not fearful ones.
I would love it if you joined me.
Simply post a daily picture of something that brings you joy, and tag it with the hashtag #100simplejoys.
I want your simple joys to show up in my feed, so I can balance the crazy with some joy. I’ll also look to share any sent my way!
Thanks for joining me!
