With everything going on in the world, I’ve found that I need moments in my day where I can kinda pause to just focus on a simple joy during my day + let me take a deep breath + kinda reset. Because of that, everyday I’m looking to find a new simple joy that I can find in my day. Today I’m sharing Simple Everyday Things That Bring Me Joy. And I think I’m goin to make it a series + keep adding to it!
#1. ✨ LIGHTING A CANDLE ✨
I have always loved candled + how they can trigger a beautiful memory with their scent or help create new ones. I also love the jars they come in + always find fun + new ways to reuse them. Recently I found that the simple act of lighting a candle + watching it burn + add a warm, cozy vibe to the space has brought me so much joy.
#2. ✨ FACE/UNDER EYE MASK AFTER A HARD DAY ✨
I’ve always loved face masks, skin care, self care really. But I always saw it as something I HAD to do. Not something I GOT to do. And last week actually, I had a really bad day + doing these awesome sparkly + effective eye mask was just what my soul needed + brought me joy. The candle didn’t hurt either ha!
#3. ✨ DRINKING WATER OUT OF A BEAUTIFUL TUMBLER ✨
“Hi, Can I have water with extra lemon please?” My go to whenever asked what I’d like to drink, either at a restaurant or at someones house, if I didn’t happen to bring my own tumbler filled with water ha! I have always loved water. However, ever since I received this tumbler, drinking water out of it has brought me so much joy. It feels so much more luxurious. I’m makes me feel so good to keep having to refill it ya know?
#4. ✨ CLIMBING INTO A NEWLY WASHED + MADE BED AT THE END OF DAY
You know you’re old when you get so excited to climb into a freshly washed + made bed at the end of the night. Especially after a shower ha! I make sure to shower one the days I wash my bedding because I so look forward to slipping into my bed when it + me are super clean ha! [Not that either is super dirty-just saying lol] But the simple act of being able to get int my clean bed brings me so much joy that I look forward to it every week.
#5. ✨ MAKING A MEAL SPARKLE WITH TWINKLE LIGHTS ✨
Last, but certainly not least, making a meal sparkle with twinkle lights brought me so much joy its kinda embarrassing. I made this charcuterie board for dinner on night when we were in TN. We had a fire going + it was just an awesome night. But I wanted to make it a little more special so I pulled out the twinkle lights I brought [yes I brought twinkle lights with me lol] + it just made the whole space more cozy + warm. And of course brought some Sparkle and Shine Bright to the mood ha! Can’t wait to do it again!
