I am on a campaign to notice and enjoy the little things in life. Oftentimes I am in major panic mode over one thing or another. Anyone who knows me well enough can attest to my ability to ignore the giant mess around me and then obsess over the smallest of problems to the point of being completely useless. The giant things I can block out. I’ve been known to put black electrical tape over an engine light in my car and yet not be able to function when it smells a little bit from having a child and the messiest adult in the world cohabitate in said car.
So, that brings me to my campaign. Stop. Notice. Smile. I’m going to make a bumper sticker. I’m in a photo challenge on Instagram, and while I honestly need very little more technology in my life, it has forced me to look at the world a bit differently. I find myself thinking of things to fit the challenge and they are all stopping and making me smile.
Stop. Notice how nice the dispenser is on my new bottle of laundry detergent. Smile.
Stop. Notice how the weather has been nice enough to not melt my ice cream cones. Smile.
Stop. Notice how the breeze flows through the windows. Smile
Stop. Notice how silly my daughter can be when I’m looking and how sweet she can be when she thinks I’m not. Smile.
Stop. Notice. Smile
