Motivational Monday #7


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Did you have a good weekend? I hope so.
 

Motivational Monday | Sprinkle of Glitter


I chose these words (from here) today because they really struck a cord with me.

Obviously, if we all had our way we would be squillionaires driving round in pink Ferrari's and flying off in our own jet to our palace made of shells and diamonds. This is a given. As it happens, the chances of these things happening (a palace made of shells??) are pretty slim.

Not having a shell castle though, is no reason to be a misery and I think that if you take as much delight in the little things as you do the huge great ones, you will feel all the better for it.

A great example of this is instagram. Instagram is a free app which encourages you to take little phone snapshots of anything you like and share them with the instacommunity. I find that I take pictures of things I would never normally deem worthy enough the attention of my canon but yet really love them. Things like a snail slithering up a wall or the mess Darcy makes with her toys or the shoes I wore that day all become merry little focuses of my attention and I find myself noticing more and more all the good things around me.

When you love all the little things, they really truly add up and you will find your spirits so lifted from doing so.

What small things will you do with great love today?

  8. I really love instagram for exactly that reason, not the effects or filters - just that it takes a couple of seconds to take a picture of something lovely and share it with lots of people. I have far too many photos from that but it's also lovely to look back on, the same things cheer you up whatever kind of day you're having! x

  14. We tend to get so fixated on the big things in life that we do forget to appreciate or even notice the little good things :( Thanks for reminding us of this!

  22. What a wonderful quote. Today I put great love into getting my daughters up "gently", fed and on the bus to school.
    I'm rather new to the whole Instagram thing, but I have been bitten by the sharing bug and agree I find my finger hovered over the share button on photos I normally wouldn't deem worthy.

  31. You are so right! Instagram is the perfect example. I totally wouldn't go and get my Canon and my favourite lens to take a picture of my whipped cream and marshmallow hot chocolate, but I definitely would with Instagram! Such lovely posts and you are such an amazing person! I would love for you to check my blog out :) I just did my favourite type of post... Boots and Superdrug HAUL :D

  33. I love these motivational Mondays you have going on; they are indeed pretty damn motivational! I completely agree with you; life is about the simple things and we absolutely must take pleasure in the smaller things. I have a happy jar; I think the whole world needs a happy jar! (*If I sound like a loon, you can find a post about it over on my bloggety blog right here... http://iamkathyb.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/everybody-needs-happy-jar.html

    Love reading your blog Louise! :) Xx

  34. I completely agree! I've had instagram for a long time now username: katie_wise before any of my friends and I was having a merry time in my own world and now its a craze everyone has and I seem to enjoy it in a different way. I think there are two sides to instagram you just have to choose which one to delve into. KT xx

  39. Love this post Louise! I feel the same way about instagram. You wouldn't think to find something pretty or special until you take a quick snapshot and think, "hey, this isn't so bad." :)
