JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 36 :: happy choosing

5 Feb
{choices}

Joy has me thinking about choices. And happiness. And the difference between joy and happy? Happy and joy?

Either way, I do know this: Joy is a game of choice.  

What we think we become. And what we choose we create. There really are so many different choices we can make… and sometimes we take a different path but arrive at the same place, same conclusion, same difference.

Joy is teaching me that it really comes down to a choice. 
We can choose to be happy.
We can choose to be sad.
We can choose to think happy thoughts while we are sad.
It really is a choice.

Happy choosing.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 30 :: oh joyous everyday

30 Jan
{every single day}

I was thinking about everyday joy today. You know, the kind of joys that we take for granted. Or, at least I do.

Things like…

  • Spotify (seriously! Any kind of music I want at the touch of my fingertips)
  • Fun people to work with and kind friends to catch up with
  • Yummy dinners cooked by my sweet hubby
  • Puppies sleeping at my feet
  • Dark chocolate
  • Hot tea
  • Netflix
  • Yarn

It’s always about the little things.
Always.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 24 :: joy is a choice

24 Jan
{i choose you}

Joy is getting to me. Literally, to my head. Ever since making this promise, I’ve been thinking about JOY and what it is, wants to be, has the potential to be in my everyday life.

Joy is whispering to me, tapping me on my shoulder and reminding me that she is a choice. A CHOICE! Imagine that. It’s like the most inexpensive, free, gift that keeps giving.

Joy is a choice. So, now I choose. Not that I haven’t chosen joy before, it’s just never been this top of mind. But now that it is, I really have to choose. Because I know it’s a choice.

What about you?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 12 :: taking a joy ride

12 Jan
{choosing}

Ah, the new year is underway! And so is my new promise: Joy. And like a little kid learning a new word I’m trying it on for size.

I am also realizing that joy is a personal statement, a choice, a collection of choices really. As I think about what brings me joy, and what brings me happiness, I’m wondering how I ever learned the difference and the meaning of these words.

  • Happiness
  • Glee
  • Bliss
  • Pleasure
  • Delight
  • Cheer
  • Joy

They are all so similar, yet so very different. I look forward to exploring more this year. Contrasting them and trying them on for size, and truly deciphering joy from the bunch. It will be a joy ride, I’m sure.

Speaking of…..
What brings you joy?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
