21+ days of joy

the habit of opening a heart

It takes twenty-one days to form a habit.

I’ve been focusing on joy every day since November 5, 2015.

I know without a doubt now that joy exists and is accessible every single day.

(I’ve had some really rough days while writing this project.)

I know that with effort at first, it is possible to open my heart to joy every day, and that joy will meet me where I am.

The habit I’ve formed is making the choice to open my heart to joy, to seek joy, to create joy and to share joy.

Each time I did so, making the choice got easier. I was able to shed some ego chatter. Without the questions and the doubts, it became automatic.

In forming this habit, I proved to my ego that it is possible to find joy every day, which means she fights less even when I’m finding it difficult to open my heart.

I’m going to keep working on this project to see what I can discover about joy now that I have faith it exists no matter what.

I hope you’ll share your recent or best experiences with joy. Do you find it easily? Do you try to find it on difficult days? Do you believe it exists?

Take good care,


busy joy

when it’s so busy

i don’t have ten minutes to sit with nature

i experience joy on the go

fresh air on my face

sunshine through my eyelids

connecting with the earth in my thin soled shoes

a song that reminds me the sun never goes down
