“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”
― Marianne Williamson
Life can be overwhelming. It is easy to forget that there is so much to be thankful for and so much that brings joy. I try to take time each week to write down things that bring me joy in my writer’s notebook.
When I am having a rough day, it helps to stop and write down the positives.
When I am having a great day, it can only get better to put the joy into words in my notebook. (Or on my blog!)
Thank you for being a blogging bully. I have finished two March Slice of Life Challenges and found a new hobby. I have found that writing is therapy. My writing has made me a better teacher of writing. So, even though I joke, I appreciate you pushing me into blogging. I owe you and I can’t wait for the Illinois Writing Project institute this month!
Dear Writer’s Notebook,
I know that so far I have mostly just filled you with lists of books that I have read and want to read. However, I promise to fill you with all kinds of random thoughts and stories this summer.
