My husband's patients will sometimes give him or our family a gift for Christmas. Many times they come in the form of restaurant gift cards. We received one of these - a Darden restaurant gift card. Since we've never eaten at Longhorns before, we decided to give it a try. Frankly, I wasn't that impressed. The quality of the steak wasn't that great. But hey, we didn't have to pay for it. A gift card allowed us to try something we hadn't tried before. Now that's 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.
