Thing #4: I Have Joy
Thursday, December 09, 2010
This morning as I was getting ready for work I started to dance in our bathroom, even without my clothes on. This is something I do often - dance out of nowhere (although I usually am clothed, lol).
I realized that the fourth thing I love about myself is that I have JOY. More so now that I've shed almost half of myself, but even before that. I have always been a pretty happy person. Yes, I can get down and depressed, I think we all can. But there's a thread of joy in everything that I do. Our breakfasts around the kitchen table I especially cherish, a moment with my family before I go off to work. We typically have music blasting, and all of us just get down. Even the baby. We dance, we sing, we are silly. We have JOY.
And I can't think of any other way I'd like to be.
Be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead!"
