I’m linking this up over at Kate Motaung’s for Five Minute Friday. Every week a one-word writing prompt is given and writers have five minutes to share.
This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
I feel like this is such a repeated topic for me but it’s so dear to my heart that I can’t stop talking about it. Finding happy right where you are. Seeing the joy in the everyday moments. In the messy, crabby, silly, overwhelming, over-touched, whatever moments that fill up your life.
That’s where I want you to find happy. To pull it out and see it in all it’s unglorious glory. Yeah, unglorious isn’t really a word but I’m making it one.
This whole life is His, not ours. Everything before and everything to come is His. What a better way to show thanks to our Creator than to enjoy it and spread the joy that we find, no matter how that joy looks. When I share my weekly joy on Mondays it is often very simple moments. It’s the kids playing playdoh or a new color of nail polish. It’s going out with my friends for dinner or staying in for a movie with my husband. It’s passing on baby items that I no longer need to a friend that’s expecting. It’s sending a card in the mail for no reason at all.
Find your happy.
