Welcome to Share the Joy!
It really is the simple things that either make or break a situation.
A soft biscuit that should have been crunchy, after a week of 5.30am wake up calls from the kids, left me feeling decidedly disappointed this week.
After all it’s only £1 for a cuppa and a biccy, not much to get wrong really. And yet the Custard Cream was soft, not crunchy = disappointment. Crushingly so when you’re counting weight watcher points. No biscuit should ever EVER be a disappointment.
Do you think disappointment comes that easily, and then just sticks around?
A soft biscuit + that person’s snark + someone at work looked you over AGAIN. All these little things add up right? Just me?
The negative spiral adds up SO quickly.
How can we shift that balance. What if we added up all of the positive things that happen. The things we’re grateful for, the small blessings along the way.
Something to think about this week…
Right, on to the link up!
Share the Joy is the happiness-focused linky created by Michelle Reeves from Michelle Reeves Coaching.
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 – Sparkle Mama Manifesto is an amazing NEW resource to help us reclaim our sparkle. Sign up on Michelle’s website and gain access to a fabulous Facebook group of like-minded people.
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 link up (I’ll be adding my picks to Michelle’s Pinterest Board where you’ll find all our favourites in one place). My favourite post this week was A Vintage Green – Painting Smalls about repurposing shutters. I’m not crafty at all so I love reading crafty posts, people are so clever and Joy is no exception.
Today I’m linking up Feast & Ferret, only a small inspiration post, but I love it.
Ok, let’s Share the Joy!
A reminder of the 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!
Have a great week!
