What’s something that makes your life Simply Better?

That’s question Edo Japan is asking it’s friends and customers launched a website where people can share their “simply better moments.”  The campaign is focused on people sharing things that make their lives simply better. You know, those little moments in your day that make you stop and smile.  (I’ll give you a moment to think of one right now.)

Edo Japan is asking people to share their Simply Better moments and besides helping to provide a moment of helpful reflection, from now until November, they’ll select submissions from and make simply better moments happen for one lucky winner every week.

Submissions are limited to 110 characters, but they can be anything from ‘spending a day at the zoo with my kids’ to ‘going for dinner and a movie with my best friend’– whatever it is that makes your day a little bit brighter!

Because this promotion is making me feel all warm in fuzzy, I wanted to share some of my Simply Better moments…but because I’m a writer, there’s no way you could limit me to 110 characters, so a wrote some small stories.  Make sure you head over to to share your moment and hopefully win a great prize.

The one time of day my kitty actually wants to cuddle with me:

I have a kitty.  She does not like to cuddle. She likes to play. But, every morning, when my alarm goes off, she runs into the room and lies on my chest for a few minutes. I love this moment because it’s literally the only time she’ll cuddle with me for the rest of the day. Sure, she’s probably just lying on me, so she knows the moment I get up to feed her, but I’ve told myself that she’s cuddling with me. Let me have it.

Going for a walk, no matter the weather:

Ever since university, I’ve loved going for walks.  Back then, it was because I had a dog and I loved how happy walks made him. Now, the walks are more habitual and I try to go almost every day. Sometimes it’s just to listen to music, other times it’s to dream about a home I wish I could afford. But most of the time, it’s the best way for me to relax and explore different corners of the city.

Getting (occasionally) sweaty:

Last year I joined a dodgeball league. Our team was terrible and we only won one game…against the only other team that hadn’t one a game.  Sure it hurt every now and then and it was a bit of a bummer to never really win a game, but I loved every moment of it. It was so fun to play the game we loved as kids. But even more than that, it was a great way to see my friends on a regular basis and yes, get a little sweaty. When you don’t get sweaty very often, when you do, it’s usually pretty thrilling.
