My mission is to encourage people to live more joyful lives by recognising and enjoying the joy to be found in the ordinary and the everyday.
I think we live such fast-paced lives, feeling under pressure to have something impressive or 'perfect' to post on social media, that we have become blind to the joy to be found in the ordinary. I want to remind people to stop, look and feel the joy to be found in the little things.
The magic in this life is finding a
moment of happiness right here, right now, possibly in something
small and easily overlooked – not waiting for it to arrive with a
fanfare some time in the future. So, you will find me stopping to take pictures of rainbows (every time!), singing along to Adele at full volume in the kitchen while I wait for the kettle to boil, or doing the school run with purple Docs on. Simple things can bring much joy. If you let them...
Keep Smiling, Helen x
Helen lives in Warrington, Cheshire in the North West of England with her husband Paul, her 2 daughters Maisie and Isobel and Cassie Dog the Golden Retriever, who has wagged her tail through Helen’s paints on more than one occasion! She drinks her tea strong (Earl Grey please), her wine red and believes that cake is a vital part of a happy life :)
