I blog a lot about inspiration, motivation, and bright side kinds of things. I do it because it’s what I like to read, and because I like to smile and laugh (and make people smile and laugh).
But I have to admit, sometimes I am terrible at the whole Enjoy the Moment stuff. I try, I really do. But sometimes I feel like an overexposed, turned inside out kind of being. Maybe it’s an introvert thing, maybe it’s just a human thing. 🙂 But when that happens, the last thing I want to do is FEEL. In fact, all I want to do is hide.
And sometimes I do.
But last month I participated in a Twitter hashtag party, where we tweeted photos of things that made us happy. Each day it was fun to check my day for that happy thing. It was kind of like writing in a gratitude journal.
And it was easy. I love taking pictures and making virtual art projects, so for me it’s a simple way of marking a happy moment.
So I’m going to keep on making note of those smiley moments. I’m calling this little social media gratitude project, Grade Your Day on the Curve. Each day you note the moment, feeling, person, place, or thing that made your face turn up in a curvy smile.
Feel free to join me, you can post with #smile if you want. I’ll be doing it on Instagram, Twitter, and probably Facebook and Pinterest too. I’ll bask in a smile whenever and wherever. 🙂
So what was a smiley moment for me today? The kindness of a friend who is not only supportive, awesome, and a picture book author, but kind of lives in the future (aka Australia).
Please hop on over and check out this post by my friend, Alarna Rose Gray.
Have a happy weekend!
