I have been a member of the pool committee in our subdivision for the last three years. I feel a deep commitment to my community. But three years has been enough. Through the process I felt I've made a difference in keeping our pool a safe, fun environment. But I've also met many neighbors that, because of their behavior at the pool or interactions with the committee regarding a variety of rules or infractions, I've learned that I never want to associate with. A valuable experience all around. And it's over! 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.
