The ritual of joy SERIOUSLY changed my life! So excited this is resonating! Sara--- YES! Your Saturday spread *is* JOY!! Astrid--- Let me know how it goes! (Right now I am 5 months pregnant and have been feeling very sick. Last night I felt like a day without complaining would be my very best medicine. It is so hard, but helping big-time today!!) Louisa-- Thank YOU! So happy you are here. Tea is such a unifying JOY-inducer! YES!
Louisa, You heard me right! I don't always drink coffee, but when I do, I do it up. I make this really tasty cup of pour-over coffee then let a pat of the very best butter I can find (my favorite is Organic Valley Pastured Cow Butter) melt into it. I take a good, long smell of it before enjoying my first sip. HEAVEN.
I love the idea of incorporating a ritual of joy into my daily routine. My life seems to be an endless to-do list, devoid of joy. Actively including a joyful activity will be a wonderful way to create happiness in my life on a daily basis. Thank you Kelly.
So good to hear, Kay. I FEEEEL you. There are times when I feel like I could just *work* all the time and it takes real effort not to do that. Savoring those moments that are truly full of quiet joy has made such a difference to me. Thank YOU for sharing!
