Little Glimmers of Joy

Finding Delight

In the whirlwind of our busy lives, we're often caught up seeking the big wins, what society deems as "success." We aim high and work tirelessly, striving for grand achievements, and thus we frequently overlook the beauty and profound joy found in everyday, mundane, and unassuming moments.

The Joy of the Present Moment

One of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is the ability to be present. The present moment is where we can find delight in the subtleties and simple pleasures of life.

Take a moment to enjoy the sounds of nature. Feel the warmth of a steaming cup of tea on a chilly day. Notice the colors of a sunset painting the sky. When we immerse ourselves in these moments, we discover the profound delight they hold.


Gratitude is the key that unlocks the door to delight. It grounds us in noticing the goodness that exists in our lives, even in the simplest moments.

Begin a gratitude journal and make it a daily practice to note the simple things that brought delight to your life. Perhaps it's the comfort of your favorite sweater or the laughter shared with a friend. As you fill the pages of your journal, you'll realize that delight can be found in the most understated moments.

An Invitation

You're invited to rediscover the magic and wonder that exists in the everyday. Savor the feeling of clean sheets, the joy of moving your body, and that spark of surprise when someone remembers what you told them and asks you about it later. Delight isn't reserved for the extraordinary; it's hidden in plain sight, waiting for us to uncover it.
