Day 3369: What brings you joy?

In my Coping and Healing groups (which bring me joy), people have been talking about being overwhelmed by the news, fears about the future, loss, medical issues, grief, uncertainties, tasks, unknowns, obligations, other people, and possessions. Regarding the latter, several people have brought up Marie Kondo and her advice to keep only the things that bring you joy.

During these anxious and depressing times, it can be very difficult to focus on the things that bring us joy, but I’m doing my best to bring it, every moment.

Do any of my images today bring you joy?

No matter how I’m feeling, Joan definitely brings me joy (among other things).

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “what brings you joy.”

I am grateful for all those that bring me joy, including YOU!

  1. Your photos of Harley and Joan always bring me Joy in my pre-work mornings, Ann! Thank you again.

  2. Luis Del Castillo

    My family, my job, my hobbies, music and your blog

  3. Joan with her catnip mouse definitely gave me joy.

  4. I love the cat joy, food joy, flag joy. so much joy here.

  5. Being alive, and a small part of something much bigger, brings me joy!

  6. I think that in turbulent times right now I’m finding joy sitting outside under the trees and birdwatching. It’s so simple, but the birds are building nests and going on with their instinctual daily duties without being brought under the stress of the daily news. There’s a lot to be learned by watching them!
