You guys know how I like to steal post ideas from better bloggers, right? Well. Heather Armstrong posted recently about how she's working on figuring out things that bring her joy so she can make sure to incorporate them into her life. Not big, ambitious bucket list kind of stuff. Little everyday things that can actually be added into a person's day without a lot of trouble or expense.
This seemed like a valuable exercise for me and for all of you. I'll start us out. And then all of you will follow! Especially those of you who complain to me and others that I don't post often enough! Ok?
Some things I could do more often that bring me joy:
reading fiction - just over five weeks left in the semester until I can read whatever I want again!
doing yoga - not so much the WAHOO! kind of joy as the AHHHHH... kind of joy
drinking champagne - obviously
exploring the place I live in
flirting with my husband
cooking and baking for other people
helping kids get better at reading
spending time outside in the sunshine
hanging out with friends
writing something that doesn't require APA citations
Ok, now it's your turn. Aaaaaaaaand GO!
