I've been struggling with what to write this week, as the hot weather has really wiped me out and all I want to do is moan, moan, moan, but let's face it - no-one wants to hear that!
Fortunately, I read this post by one of my most very favourite bloggers, Liz at Margot and Barbara. The first in a weekly series, Liz explains why she decided to introduce this feature and what she hopes to achieve from it:
Three Good Things is inspired by ongoing conversations I have with friends and from re-reading sections of The Happiness Project. It’s about focussing on what I do have in my life, instead of what I don’t have.
Each week, I shall choose three things to share. Things that have made me happy, made me smile, brought me a bit of joy or peace and made me grateful for the life that I have.
I can totally see how Three Good Things will help you to focus on the best bits of your week and that's something I need right now. Also, how cool is Liz's strawberries photo?!
Here are mine:
Somebody asked me what my favourite food is today. My answer? Pudding!
And this particular icecream was perfect to cool me down! So good in fact that I savoured it over 2 nights rather than scarffling it down in one go!
Now that is an achievement for me!
My new feature starts this week - tomorrow in fact! Remember when I called for guest posts? Well, I'm really excited about sharing the inspirational women you've been telling me about. I'm hoping it will be an uplifting celebration of womankind and a reminder that inspiration can come from anyone, anywhere.
After featuring Redemption by Erica Hayes in my Teaser Tuesday post, I was gobsmacked when Erica herself tweeted me to say thank you!
This is why I love twitter! Totally put a smile on my face!
