hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Writing

Writing

Today is a simple gratitude. I was awake early, and I got to work early, which meant that I could take a midday break (in lieu of lunch, in this case) and go outside near the water on a beautiful sunny day to write. 

I'm working on my book, finally. I think if I voice this aloud, much like putting Joyful into a daily blog, there is some level of accountability, and I need accountability to do this project. It's been a dream for forever, but I've never known where to start, how to write, and I was gifted with a starting point. So, any well wishers out there, or prayer warriors, or good vibes senders, please send them my way. I need a lot of divine help. 

And thank you to you, for reading this, and making me feel like my words have meaning. I hope you know how much you mean to me! Without you, I'm just a tree falling in the forest. This way at least, I hope, we are building each other up.
