I love to cook but sometimes I don't like lingering cooking smells. That's where my scented candles come out to play. I'm pretty picky about my scented candles, though. They can't be too flowery and I'm not fond of cinnamon or fruit smells. I typically stick with the clean scents of fresh laundry or the sea. Sometimes I allow vanilla to sneak in. Tonight, after dinner, I wanted a fresh, clean start for the day tomorrow. I scrubbed the kitchen and then lit my favorite candle that reminds me of the beach. Ahhhhh. Scented joy. I feel warmer already.
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.
