Welcome to Share the Joy!
I was going through my Instagram Stories feed the other day and someone said ‘look after your body like the luxury item it is’. I keep learning this lesson over and over again, that self care isn’t selfish. In fact looking after ourselves is to show gratitude in the most honouring of ways.
I am so grateful for this body, for my mind and for my God-given spirit.
We have been given one life, and a responsibility to look after ourselves, other people and the planet we inhabit with grace. I missed all of my triggers to overwhelm this week and I ran head first into it at the first sign of stress or disappointment.
It can be really easy to miss the red flags when it comes to ourselves can’t it? So the words ‘luxury item’ resonated with me. Some times we treat our shoes and handbags better than we do ourselves.
These bodies of ours, they are amazing, and can do amazing things. When they’re working and the best they can be we can and will achieve great things for ourselves and others. So look after yourself; body, mind and spirit. It’s the only way to truly live life to the full, so you’re raring on full battery and ready to help others along the way.
Right, on to the link up!
Share the Joy is the happiness-focused linky created by Michelle Reeves from Michelle Reeves Coaching, formerly known as The Joy Chaser.
Michelle has asked me to step in and host for her while she creates some exciting new courses and free resources for busy mamas and bloggers – including working 121 with them to create exciting goals and actionable plans to make 2017 their Best Year Yet! (Find out more here Best Year Yet!).
I’m really excited to be hosting and can’t wait to read all your fabulous posts!
Bloggers, writers, artists, poets, if creating something made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile – you’re welcome here.
Link up and share your creations with a wider audience. All genres are welcome – new or old favourites and as many links as you like.
Each week, I’ll pick a favorite post and feature it on the following week’s Share the Joy link up (I’ll be adding my picks to Michelle’s Pinterest Board where you’ll find all our favorites in one place). Last time I loved: Insanely Delicious – Cheesecake Recipe Round-up, 35 + cheesecake recipes that will have your mouth watering, I think I’d choose the blackberry one so yummy.
Today I’m sharing Storalex Shelving Review and I would love your comments. Ok, let’s Share the Joy!
Here’s a reminder of the 3 really simple mandatory rules…
1) Link up a creation that has brought you JOY – all genres are welcome, new or old favourites and as many links as you like!
2) Link back either by including the Share the Joy badge (below) or a text link back to this Share the Joy linky page in your own post.
3) Please comment on one of your hosts’ posts and a few others. Let’s Share the JOY through commenting as well as through our posts!
Share the Joy will run for a whole week until the following week’s linky is open, so you’ll never be too late. And don’t forget to tweet me (@lizzie_roles) and Michelle (@MReevesCoaching) the URL to your post using the hashtag #sharethejoylinky so we can retweet it.
Feel free to invite your friends to join in – JOY is always better when it’s shared!
As always have a wonderful week!
