Perhaps you can relate?
The pursuit of joy is certainly no fairy tale. It is a knock-out, drag out, fight that lasts a lifetime. It is disciplined reflection on beauty, blessings and bounty, and a decided rejection of all that is not, never was, and may never be. It is not for the faint of heart, or the weak-willed, or the easily satisfied.
And me? I'm just a girl on a journey to joy. Committed to wholeheartedly pursuing it every day and wrestling it to the ground until it says uncle. Doing my best to enjoy life as it truly is - without exaggeration, unedited & unscripted.
A good friend once told me, "if everybody else is zigging, you need to be zagging." All my life I've been a zagger trying to zig. Thankfully, with age comes wisdom. And my years have taught me well - outliers are strangely beautiful, brave even.
This Joyous Home is me, zagging. It is a constant reminder to abandon all society tells us will bring us true joy & contentment, and instead choose to draw from a well of endless joy that never be depleted.
Thanks for tagging along and enduring my random, repetitive rants. Good friends make the bitter sweet and the burden light.
