JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 1 :: a new promise

1 Jan
{a new day}

Hello, 2018! Nice to meet you. 

Today begins a new promise here at The Promise 365 — now in its 8th year. (Eight years!) Again, I will make a promise and follow its lead… while blogging every single day. It always takes me to places I couldn’t imagine on my own… that’s the magic of making a promise.

My promises also hook together. Over the course of one promise, I begin to understand what the “big deal” is and what lesson is out there for me to learn, and then that becomes my next promise.

So, dear 2018… we go!

noun: joy

  1. 1.
    a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

It’s probably not a shocker that kindness led to JOY …and, yet to me, it totally took me by surprise. Over the course of last year, kindness kept leading me down the path to more and more joy. To more pleasure, and more fun.

And who wouldn’t want more of that?

Apparently, our world needs more joy. Check out this graph of the word JOY over time. It peaked in the 1800’s and has been on a steady decline for the last century.

So what would happen if we all focused on more joy?
I’m about to find out.

Want to come along?

More tomorrow…
