The Joy Diet - Week One
The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely, aware.
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.
