Once upon a time, I found out you can bottle joy…
I am so excited to be starting this project. I have a lot of “30 days” things going on as a work at home mom, but all on slightly different schedules. It keeps me on my toes, right? It’s my mission to help moms get their “momME” back and a part of that is learning to help them know when they need a little “mommy support.” That involves providing them with tools they can use and I have a feeling this will be a great one. Feel free to play along with me and join me on the journey to 30 Days of Joy!
I had the luck and pleasure of coming across Ashley of Jars of Joy on twitter (@Jars_of_Joy). I am a firm believer that things present themselves before you when you are in need of them, you just need to keep your eyes and heart open. I am one of a handful of bloggers who are privileged to have received free* 30 day challenge kits in return for writing and sharing our experiences. As soon as I saw the posting about there being a few kits left and her tagline of “Spreading the Joy one day at a time,” I contacted her. It didn’t hurt that she was from Nashville, where some of my most favorite business partners are located and in checking her blog, I discovered she is a Zumba enthusiast as well. That all equaled “I need to meet this woman and get involved in what she is doing.” While awaiting a response, I took the time to play around longer on her website, www.jarsofjoy.com.
In a nutshell, there are 7 differently themed jars, each filled with 365 colorful slips of paper with an inspiring quote and a “task” for the day. You can see samples of some of the tasks on the website and I will be documenting the ones that I received. Each jar is slightly different from the next, but each will help you discover more joy in life.
So on to Day 1:
Wow, we’re not beating around the bush here, are we? I actually pulled a different one out that was really cool, but I knew today’s schedule would have made it impossible and I want to do it to its fullest.
I love: my hair, my skin (could NOT have said that a year ago), my ability to make people laugh, my sensitivity, my musicality and singing voice, that I’m learning to laugh at myself, that I’m a really good mommy most of the time (my daughter said so, lol), and that I get to help others unmask their radiance and awaken their sparkle by finding their ME’s again. I love that today is a new day where I get to learn, to share, to inspire, to dream and if things go “wrong,” I love that I get to wake up, read this list, and try it all again.
What about you? Are you playing along? Blogging along? What do you love about you?
