Day 2875: Getting my joy back

After dealing with many setbacks, losses, scares, pain, and disappointment over the last four years, I am finally getting my joy back.

Can you see my joy in any of these images?

The best way to get over someone

who uses their energy to destroy

is to build with joy.

Last night, while I was getting my joy back, I heard this old favorite, which always gives me joy.

In “Love is the Answer,” Todd Rundgren asks, “Are we alive or just a dying planet? What are the chances?”

With joy, love, hope, clear vision, trust, good enough leaders, and a commitment to the hard work ahead, we now have a chance.

I’m getting my joy back with gratitude, so thanks to all who help me create these daily posts, including YOU!

    Ann, please help me understand the meaning of the crab, and what is written on its mask? Thank you. I’m glad you are feeling more optimistic. Have a nice week-end.

    • I would be happy to do so — the crab is a door knocker I see on my walks, and “VOTE” is written on its mask. I’m always glad to see you here.

  16. Little things can really lift me up. Your video from the Mike Douglas Show made me smile. I used to watch that religiously. LOL! I think we rally must reach for joy sometimes. It is easily robbed from us, but most of the time we can “get it back” with some reflection. I have felt depleted, but I can feel the joy, too. ❤
