There is nothing like a long, steamy, hot shower. I know, not very PC or green of me. And trust me. I'm a mom. My morning routine has the bare essentials. If I have time for it, a quick shower is a plus in the morning. When I was a kid I swam on a swim team. We all raced to the showers after practice and steamed up the locker room. We'd turn our skin pink with how hot the water was. Please don't criticize. This was way before we knew anything about water conservation. And now, if I take a little longer than usual, the guilt sets in. So I don't get to take a long, hot shower very often. But when I do? Pure joy.
A friend once told me that she tries to find joy in every day. But some weeks it's hard. A whole week without finding joy? That is so sad. I find joy in EVERY day. Or so I think. So I'm testing myself. I am challenging myself to find joy in every single day. Without fail. I will post joy every single day to prove it to myself, to inspire others. Just to see if I can do it. Small bits of joy. Large, monumental moments of joy. But joy is what you will find here.
