Even though I already have a pile of unread magazines rather impatiently waiting for me on my desk (they’re keeping a close watch on me right now), I never can resist the lure of more lovely printed words. Books are wonderful life companions, but sometimes something shorter and sweeter is nice too.
Have you come across the delightful ‘Spoonful‘ before? It’s one publication I’ve been meaning to read for ages – and considering it’s already up to Issue 3, I’ve certainly taken my time in getting around to it (better late than never!).
Described as ‘a happiness companion’, Spoonful provides a little collection of thoughts, poems and stories to inspire and uplift – an especially lovely way to end a busy and stressful working day. Much like a ‘spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down’, this ‘spoonful of writing helps the happiness stick around’. After all, it’s a proven scientific fact that reading is good for your health.
Given that there are three issues of Spoonful currently available, I thought it would be appropriate to share three little things that have provided me with happiness this week:
- Eating the first delicious meal cooked on our new BBQ (vegetarian of course)
- Finding some lovely things to send to some dear friends
- Enjoying the earthy fragrance of my new shampoo
Have you had a happy week? What’s been something to make you smile or get your heart feeling all warm and fuzzy?
