From She Noted…
It’s 2020 and I’m going to plant a project. Grow what you love, love what you do. Oftentimes, the world can feel a little chaotic; all a bit confusing. That’s why I’ve always been interested in what makes people happy – in their passions and projects. In doing what you love and sharing it for the good, we’re all creating a greater culture of kindness – and that’s something that ought to be celebrated, wholeheartedly. I received an adult diagnosis of ASD in 2018, which lit up so many different parts of my life and aided my concept of self. All the steps that I’ve taken and all of those that I’ll take will be towards what I believe is at the heart of Little Things Living:
Gratitude – to find moments of quiet, to reflect on simplicity and what brings you joy, in the little things
To do what you love – to go against the grain, whether that’s pursuing a hobby, collecting all manner of curios or living your life in a certain way that’s fulfilling to you
A culture of kindness – to take note of how, ultimately, being kinder can change the world in small, significant ways
Awareness – to spread those moments of joy, to talk about what’s important and to encourage others to do what makes them happy
Together, we’ll champion these causes, through features, profiles and how-to’s based around affirming philosophies on life and everything else in-between. I’ve wanted She Noted to be a collaborative space for quite some time, as I’m fascinated by what people are able to achieve from their interests – as a way to inspire others.
How to get involved?
I propose using #LittleThingsLiving to mark your moments, your highlights; those that add to the concept I’ve outlined above. Equally, you may have a story that you’d like to have told, to add to the movement. Within She Noted I shall be including posts for Little Things Living, reflective of personal journeys, interests and hobbies – however big or however small.
If you have a story that you’d like to be told, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, using ‘Little Things Living’ as a part of your subject line.
