Find Your Joy - Everyday!

This morning on the Today Show, Dr. Nancy Snyderman was talking about 7 Ways to Simplify Your Life.

One of the things she said really struck me.  She said:

Take a moment to appreciate each day
Find one thing: either visual, auditory or olfactory to focus on and find the gift in. Every day, try to register something that gives you a pause. I truly believes this goes to the core and makes you feel that you're part of something bigger. It makes you connect with the idea that we share the earth with millions of others and we don't live isolated lives.

This really moved me.  The idea is that no matter how bad your day is you can find one thing from each day to appreciate and make that your moment.

My husband said what if you can't find anything, then that would be really depressing.  As I was leaving I gave him a kiss and I said "If nothing else happens today, that is your moment, because you know that there are people at home who love you."

I am really inspired to find my moment every day and also to be there to hopefully help create that moment for someone who is having a rough time.

What was your moment today?

Great uplifting post. I am blessed to be able to look into my three year olds face every morning. For me, it just does not get any better than that!

Ellie - I agree with you.  I especially love to hear my kids laugh, you know in that uninhibited ways that only kids have.

My moment today was talking with a friend who just lost a loved one.

Hi Stacey-Ann, I had several moments yesterday, just making it to the office was challenging in the fog, but everything was so beautifu.  All the trees, and branches were covered in a beautiful white flocking - I was happy to make it to the office in one piece and to see the beautiful sights, most of all.

Great words to live by, and probably live much longer too!  My moment came today when I was helping a friend prepare her house for sale.  The smile on her face as she thanked me was all I needed!

Linda - that is remarkably similar to my moment today

Mary - It is so easy to find moments when you truly appreciate the beauty of nature

Sharon - a smile from a friend is one of the most precious things.
