I've been having some struggles in my life lately. And I've been unmotivated and just plain blah. I looked at my husband the other night and said, "I think I might be depressed." And it was a revelation of sorts. I'm not prone to sad thoughts. Sitting around moping. And I don't like it. But when I write, here and elsewhere, I feel so much better. Writing is a therapeutic exercise. And it puts the joy back in my life.
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.
