I pretty much love everything about sprinkles—they are such little things and yet they have the power to transform. As soon as you shake a few atop something ordinary, be it yogurt, toast, oatmeal, a donut or ice cream, it instantly becomes extra special. Everyday sprinkles are little things that you can add to your day or week that will spark curiosity, kindness, creativity or compassion. Everyday sprinkles are easy-to-do actions that help you wake up and pay attention and with a little intention lift your awareness and make you and your life better.
Get some actual sprinkles if you don't already have some? Put them in your cupboard, where you will see them often and be reminded to use them, both literally and figuratively. I now have an Instagram account dedicated to everyday sprinkles and I share a new idea every Monday. I hope you'll follow me there. When you use actual sprinkles or everyday sprinkles, I want to know about it. Post a photo to Instagram or Facebook or Tweet and share your sprinkle moments. Use the hashtag #everydaysprinkles and/or tag me @everydaysprinkles or @stacyjulian — together we'll help each other adjust attitudes and habits, so that we live with more anticipation and energy. Together we can choose not to make life about the routine of living, but about the people we love and the opportunity we have to be curious, kind, creative and compassionate. These are the efforts that will bring more "dessert" into our days and more delight into our marriages, families and homes.
I say, "Pass the sprinkles!"
