My youngest is afraid of heights. And we have a massive, amazing pool slide at our neighborhood pool. It has intimidated him every season. We went to the pool last week and he finally mustered up enough nerve to go down. But it was closed. No extra guard on duty to supervise. I promised him, if the weather was still warm enough, that I'd take him today. It was. So I did. He LOVED it! And he went down a total of 21 times! We had a blast. He can't wait until next season. The joy in his face was so amazing to witness. My favorite kind of 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.
