Share the Joy



Hey friends,

Welcome to Share the Joy!

Jon bought me Oprah Winfrey’s book ‘What I know for Sure’ for Christmas.  Have you read it? If you haven’t I recommend it, an amazing book full of her personal insights about love, connecting, all centred around what she knows for sure.

Oprah was asked the question during an interview ‘what do you know for sure’? It’s got me thinking the same question, what do I know for sure?

I’m sure that we are never done with learning about ourselves and other people.

I know for sure that it’s ok to not have everything all figured out, none of us can know every little thing, unless we are God of course.  I know I have only one life and with that life comes responsibility.  I can let that responsibility sit on me heavily like a rain cloud or I can let it rest on me lightly, like a sun beam on my face.

I know for sure that to help one person is to help many and to help myself, I know for sure that my most important roles in life are wife, mum,sister, daughter, friend….I know for sure that I am here because I love to write, not because I want to become famous, or to make loads of money (that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t accept those things, obvs!) I simply know for sure that I need to write, to share, to create and on the reverse, to listen and host and invite others to share in that.

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:   How to neutralise the naysayers in your life from Michelle at Michelle Reeves coaching with a really helpful Facebook live video which I found really helpful to protect my dreams and goals for 2017.

Today I’m sharing My word for 2017 – TRUST and I would love your comments.  Ok, let’s Share the Joy!

Here’s a reminder of the 3 really simple 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!

Share the Joy every Monday at

As always have a wonderful week!

Lizzie xoxo
