I inherited some of my grandmother's pretty china cups, saucers and dessert plates. And I never use them. They sit, lonely, in a pretty glass cabinet, only to be admired. While we were snowed in I wondered: What am I saving these for? Why not use them? So I did. And I swear it made my coffee and tea taste so much sweeter. It was so much fun to sip my hot beverage from such a pretty, dainty cup. It's the only way I'll drink my coffee and tea from now on. Why? Because it brings me 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.
