Finding little bits of joy everyday

This is an exercise for me to attempt a more positive outlook on life. Everyday I will sit down at the end of the day and write a post that simply talks about something good that happened during my day. Doing this everyday, I am hoping that I will begin to look at experiences in a whole new light. This is not really a blog that I think will take off like a rocket but more a journey I want to take to be a better person. I want to be sure I am living the life I want to live by looking for little signs of joy and blessings in my life.

Today, I am posting a tad earlier than I normally will because something incredible happened today and I don’t WANT to wait until the end of the day. My daughter, Lily, received a wonderful award today, “Principal’s Honor Roll” for all four quarters of her 6th grade school year! I am so proud of her and her accomplishment because this was all her! She told me at the beginning of the year that her goal was to achieve straight A’s this year and she did that and then some.

Proud Momma moment I have to say and to see the pride in her eyes when she walked across that stage, my heart swelled three times it’s normal size. As I write this I am smiling still.

Well, the first post is down and more are to come. Wish me luck in this journey. I am interested to see what life is like at the end of this year of finding my joy.
