About The Simple Swan

The Simple Swan is a weekly blog
inspiring optimistic grown-ups
to fill their lives with joy!

Grown-up optimists embody a seasoned combination of
sage wisdom and positive thinking…

We’ve lived long enough to know we are responsible for our own happiness. Life’s had its way of shaking off our naiveté and innocence, but we’ve held on to our hope and enthusiasm. The older we get, the more we realize life is short, and it’s up to us to make the most of each day with a spirit of optimism and joie de vivre! 

With age and experience, we’ve come to learn what we knew all along ~

  • Life doesn’t need to be so complicated.
  • Happiness is a choice.
  • Kindness matters.
  • Simple pleasures make life worth living.

Whether you’re a natural-born optimist who wants to keep walking on the sunny side of the street, or a life-long cynic who wants to give optimism a try, this blog is just for you!

Every Sunday morning, The Simple Swan
publishes a new article to inspire grown-ups like us
to joyfully embrace our age and our optimism.
We’ll explore practical ideas and fresh perspectives
to bring more happiness to these areas of life,
particularly as we grow older ~
