Morning, everyone! I’m here today for the Bloghop of Joy! hosted by myself and Kyra Lennon!
In these cold, winter months, everything can seem kind of ... bleak. However, every now and again, something small will happen that makes us smile again. It could be a random memory, something you see on TV, overhearing something that makes you laugh out loud - just that one thing that makes the clouds part, and the sunshine appear again. We're not talking life-changing moments, just the little things that inexplicably make us smile.
All you have to do to be a part of this happy hop is sign up on the Linky List, and on March 1st, post your list of joy - with a minimum of five things that put a spring back in your step!
Here’s my list:
Nothing cheers me up on a bad day like Youngest wearing underpants on his head, pretending he’s Bane. Or Oldest coming home telling me he’s the only one in class who paid attention in reading comprehension, and got a house point. Or Hubby telling me I’m beautiful even when I don’t feel like I am, and I’m worrying about my weight. Or Mum calling to ask how my week’s been and if I’m okay. Or a quick email from one of my wonderful friends saying “hi”.
When I’m feeling down, one of my go-to things is treats; be it a bar of chocolate, a couple of cookies or a slice of cake. That quick sugar rush is sure to chase away the blues.
Being an avid wrestling fan, I also have a soft spot for well-toned guys. There’s no easier way to bring a smile to my face than with a picture of some hot, shirtless man. Tuesdays are always my favourite day of the week, because I get my wrestling fix!
Sometimes the Internet can be a dark scary place full of trolls and entitled people with challenging opinions. And other times, it’s utterly silly, and fully of insane stuff sure to make you smile. Need a quick mood booster? Check out 9gag.com – you might come across something hilarious, like a smiling lamb! Or if that fails, there’s always http://heyyeyaaeyaaaeyaeyaa.com/ - played on an endless loop of happiness!
Losing Myself in Something
Sometimes kids, husbands, writing, bills and other responsabilities all get a little too much, and you need an escape for a few minutes. In those times, there’s nothing like losing yourself in something; be it a round of Candy Crush Saga, A Chapter of The Spook's Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch, or making ASOIAF dolls on http://www.dolldivine.com/index.html. Anything to lose myself in for 5-10 minutes, and escape the stresses of life, so I can go back to tackling everything.
These are just a few things I go to to chace the blues away. What about you? Be sure to check out the other blogs on the hop, which can be found here:
