I've spent a lot of time lately finally cleaning out boxes and boxes in the basement. I wouldn't call myself a hoarder but I do save things. Old journals. Old lesson plans from my teaching days. Mementos from my kid's arrivals. Photos. The typical keepsake memorabilia. But the 0ther day I found love letters my husband and I sent each other during our long distant relationship phase. Ahhh, the memories it brought back. It was so fun, sitting there, feeling again the excitement and love we had for each other. So new. So fresh. I will joyfully read them again and again.
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.
