We’re two weeks away from celebrating Easter; six weeks until Mother’s Day and so on.
One of the problems, as I see it, is that we jump from holiday to holiday; from special moments to special celebrations. We’re often looking for that next big family dinner or gathering.
But, what about the days in between. We have many “normal” days. We rise, work or do chores, plan meals, eat, etc. Perhaps what is needed is that small celebration each and every day.
Living frugally as Nick and I do, these daily moments come from creativity. Travelling to visit with family on the spur of the moment, buying flowers for a friend, going for walks to witness spring in action. Each time we follow our hearts, our intentions to find a small light in the day, we lift each other up. Our steps become light, the conversation turns to joy.
These small things may only last a moment or two but add value to each day.
The question that came across my desk a few years ago was, “When did you last dance? When did you last sing?” I’ll add my own – When did I last engage in something creative, using my imagination? When did I last write in my journal?
How about you? When did you last…..? Let’s motivate ourselves to find some joy today.
