I enjoy James Taylor's music. He isn't my number one folk favorite but many of his songs "sing" to me, if you will. Today, I was feeling a bit melancholy. For no particular reason. I was flipping stations and one of his songs was playing. And then another. Evidently, the station was doing a mini-tribute to his work. And I realized how meaningful many of his songs were to me. By the third song, my mood had shifted. I was feeling lighter, happier. Today's joy is brought to me by James Taylor.
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.
