Yesterday I had no inspiration what so ever for this week’s #FeelGoodFriday post. It’s been a really busy couple of weeks and to be honest, I couldn’t really find the joy that I usually tap into to write FGF.
Thankfully, twitter had the inspiration I was looking for. The lovely Sarah Strong suggested “small things that make you smile”. This reminded me of where I usually go when I’m feeling down, what cheers me up?
My first go-to is the YouTube clip Dance Like Nobody’s Watching. Let’s face it, who hasn’t wanted to just do a knee slide across a laundry floor?!
Next up is the always inspirational Steve Jobs
“Your time is limited so don’t waste it living someone else’s life”
So true. The bit that also really resonates with me is when he talks about doing something that you wouldn’t be happy to do on your last day on earth. Do that for too many days and you have a problem. There was a time when I saw this clip and thought “it’s alright for you to say that, you have money and choices” and that may be true but it doesn’t mean that it isn’t still the way we should all be thinking.
I love TED.com and always find sources of inspiration there but the videos I like the most are a little too heavy for this post (save them for another day) so I’m going to finish with my other favourite go to place for smiles, my Pinterest “Cute Animals” board. I think you’ll be able to tell I have put a lot of effort into collating quite the extensive collection *bows*
Cute, funny and a little bit weird…
What cheers you up?
