Unexpected Joys and Life is Lovely Linkup #1

2016Kim BrushComment

Yesterday was a yucky day

*Our car is in the shop for the 4th week

*Physical therapy hurts but I have to go

*Kids are sick - enough said

*We are still behind in our homeschool

*The second grocery store I checked was ALSO out of my favorite treat.  Natural creamy peanut butter.  So NO homemade pb cups. :(

I left the grocery store, got in my old junky vehicle, couldn't get the door to unlock, looked around and realized there were SO many lovely things right in front of me. 

I just needed to open my eyes and SEE them. 

Lovely JOYful unexpected things

*The trees were amazing right above my head

*I was shopping without a coat

*I'm out running errands 3.5 months after hip replacement surgery

You have to look for it.  Happiness doesn't just happen.  You have to CHASE it!

Just that morning I had listened to a periscope on happiness.  It really hit home for me. Joy and happiness are close cousins!  So I'm taking the happiness dare from Money Saving Mom's Happiness periscope.

I want to chase happiness and joy. 

If you are on Instagram, then you might want to follow Day to Day Adventures on Instagram as I share what things I find each week that are lovely and bring me JOY! 

Life is Lovely

I want to invite you to a resource that can bring you up when things seem really down.  Each week, some friends and I will be sharing what is lovely in our lives.  Maybe a photo, something we've read, or a a funny video. 

We'd love for you to participate.  Share the good things you have found in your life this week!
