Sidenote: This was actually yesterday’s prompt. I had it ready to go last night, but due to technical difficulties couldn’t post until today. Nice one, blog.
Today’s prompt: 5 things that bring me joy.
When I started thinking about this one I realized that a lot of things bring me joy, so this was hard to narrow down. I wouldn’t say these are necessarily the top five things, but they’re the first that came to mind so I just went with them.
Cake – I adore cake. I’m trying not to eat cake, though. Life is sad without cake.
Books/bookstores/libraries – Books and places I can find books have always been my happy place. I could sit in a bookstore all by myself for hours and hours.
Journaling – I’ve always wanted to journal but never kept up with it much until the past year. It’s my new fav because it’s memory-keeping, a creative outlet, and my sort-of daily planner all rolled into one. I wish I would have started years ago.
My girls – It seems a little crazy that one of my biggest sources of frustration can also be where I find the most joy, but I guess that’s kind of normal for kids. I really, really love the age my girlies are at right now. They’re still in that everything is exciting and silly phase, and it’s so fun to do things together.
Traveling – Because seeing new places is just fun. I think I’m even converting Jerm into a traveler because he keeps talking about where we’ll go/what we’ll see next. There’s something magical about visiting a new place (or even re-visiting favorite destinations), right? Traveling with Jerm is one of my favorite things to do, even if it’s just for a few hours.
So, there you have it. Five things that bring me joy. What brings you joy?
