It's easy for the small moments to get overlooked amidst the hustle and bustle of our week, isn't it? I realized a couple months ago that I was paying less attention to the little sweet spots in my day because my mind was constantly cluttered with a million to-dos, tasks, and problems.
So I came up with this little hashtag, #sweetspots, and I challenged myself to intentionally slow down and pay attention to the little beauties in my day. I try to capture these moments and post them to Instagram as a way to document them, and I've challenged my Elle & Company friends to do the same.
Not surprisingly, this little venture has resulted in a thankful heart. I have to purposefully seek out the parts of each day that are special, even in the mundane. It's a search for how I've been blessed, which is not only mood-boosting; it's heart-changing.
My prayer is that others take me up on this challenge, but not just to make smile when I see #sweetspots pop up on my Instagram feed (because come on, that's a given). I would love for this encouragement to become contagious and engrained in our everyday lives.
So tell your friends about these little moments of thankfulness this week and challenge them to join in! More positivity, more smiles, more joy. Amen?
