My dh asked me what it was for (I guess it IS kinda small!) --- but I had a good answer ready!
As I mentioned in another post, I've been noting the lack of joy in my life -- not because there's no source of it, but because I haven't been claiming it or practising it. I also mentioned that the theme for this month in the Creative Every Day challenge happens to be "bliss," and in the context of the challenge that word is used interchangeably with the word "joy." Also, yesterday I was absorbing some motherly encouragement at Sally Clarkson's blog, "I Take Joy" -- and then this morning I was reading Psalm 51 about joy being restored -- and I just knew I was meant to reflect on this theme pretty seriously.
Sooooo, I created this little notebook to document all the reasons I have to live a joyful life. That's what I want to live, and that's what I know I CAN live, but I have to choose it. As Sally Clarkson says, I have to "practise" it.
So I'm starting with this little notebook.
What about you? How do you practise living joyfully? Is there any creative, artful thing that helps you to do so?
