for the joy

So this lovely post landed in my mailbox yesterday and I just had to share.  I’m thinking this weekend may need to include a trip to the Container Store , the Boston Temple  and a trip to the Ocean/Fuller Gardens.  Joy…

Dear Incredible Girl,

One of the best ways to nourish your soul is to seek out and do the things that totally absorb you in happiness, things that call to you…things that you are naturally good at and things that fill you up.

It’s important to balance your life with the things that MUST be done AND the things that we do simply because of the joy that comes in doing those things.

Life is meant to be enjoyed and not merely endured. There are simple and small things that we can do that will refuel our souls. We all need to make time to do these sorts of things if we want to live meaningful lives. We will be better at everything that we MUST do if we take time to do what we LOVE to do. We will be better wives, mothers, friends, daughters, sisters, aunts, partners and coworkers…….and we surely will FEEL better every minute of the day.

Please don’t get sucked into the falsehood that taking time to nourish your soul is selfish and futile. It is ESSENTIAL. It doesn’t take anything away from anyone…it only adds to the goodness that you already have inside of you.

Be brave today and do something that puts a smile on your face…just for the sake of doing it. Little miracles will happen….you will see.
xoxo
