The Joy Diet - Week One

The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely, aware.
(Henry Miller)

Today marks the beginning of The Next Chapter: The Joy Diet. I am excited to join this online book club of courageous, artistic and thoughtful bloggers. It may be obvious since this blog is still a baby, but this is my first undertaking of the sort.

Over the summer, I admired my friends in the Wreck This Journal group from afar - partly because I was blogless, but mostly because the idea of destroying my neat and tidy journal did not appeal to me.

I am looking forward to seeking joy while exploring Martha Beck’s concepts. I hope to share my thoughts and learn from the amazing community Jamie Ridler has fostered. As we embark on this journey, I am really looking forward to sharing a new vision card for each week and diving deeper into my relationship with joy.

I am a very upbeat, positive and fun person overall. Of course I have moments of dramatic despair, but I recover quickly. My goal is to seek a more stable and blissful internal temperature – a constant state of the childlike joy that lives within all of us.

I cannot wait to jump into the first menu item: Nothing. More updates next Friday! It’s never too late to join in on the fun, click here to get started.
