Exposed Day 12, Finding Joy

We all forget sometimes…

To do the things that bring us true joy and lasting pleasure,

To say no to, and do less of, the things that take it away.

I used to walk this lake almost every morning. The trail is right at the end of my street.

Sometimes the things we need are right in front of us, we just have to get out of our own way.

I’ve been spending most of my days inside, working, and focused on all the things that I’m creating.

It’s also winter time – a time of darkness and going within, so sometimes it feels harder to get moving.

But my walk and my lake this week reminded me how important it is to get up, get out, and do things that feel good.

I have a tendency to take life way too seriously. That’s why I gravitate to people who make me laugh and help life feel lighter for me.

And sometimes I need these reminders more often, so this is mine for you…

The holidays can be a tough time for so many.

So get up, get out, and do something that brings you joy over the next couple of weeks.

You, as much as anyone else in the entire universe, deserve to be happy, have peace and feel joy.
