It seems everyone I know is busy—overwhelmed with the business of life. As I reflected on how we can appreciate the little joys each day, I noticed my dog’s tail wagging. It struck me—how dogs live so in the moment, finding joy in everything they explore throughout their day. Why couldn’t I also make that a focus in my day?

So I invited three friends to join me in a 31-day challenge, and I’d like to invite you as well to the #MyDailyWag Challenge.

What is it? Simple:

  1. Each day, take a photo of something that brings you a moment of joy in your day. It doesn’t have to be impressive, it can be a smile, nature, a person, an object, a place, or so much else. No, this doesn’t have to have anything to do with a dog or cat! :)
  1. Share that picture on social media: Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
  1. Include the hashtag #MyDailyWag on anything you post.

That’s it! Me, authors Deborah Brown, Christy Morgan and Diane Freeman will be there each day sharing our own #MyDailyWag photos and engaging with you if you share yours.

In a world where there is so much to be worried about, I think it is important for us to take the time to appreciate and share the simple joys as well. I hope you’ll join me. I look forward to seeing what simple joys fill your day.

Thank you,

Mary Keliikoa
