For some reason, I've been having a really hard time with my sleep. Waking in the middle of the night. Unable to fall asleep right away. I'm trying everything to preserve my sleep and the one thing I am very grateful for is my sleep mask. It helps to block the dim light of the alarm clock or the light that seeps in the morning before it's time for me to actually get up. Last night I finally fell asleep and was still sleeping, all the way until 7:15am. It was only six hours of sleep but it was six hours uninterrupted. And I credit my sleep mask for bringing me a little sleeping 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.
