Years ago, I purchased The Joy Diet and it's been sitting on my shelf ever since. I've read parts of it from time to time. But recently, I listened to Martha Beck's Finding Your Own North Star and I was really impressed with so much of her approach. When I saw that The Joy Diet was up next for book blogging, I knew immediately that I wanted in!
In March of this year, I married my North Star. Every day feels joyful with my husband. Life wasn't always this kind to me though. As I continue on this journey of joy and self-discovery, I think it's well worth while to participate in this group. My experience in my blogging community has been so amazingly supportive and uplifting. As a group, we can get through this book together with so much love and support!
Joy is a choice; so is anger and self-defeat. It's obvious which is the better choice and yet, we spend so much time bashing ourselves. We owe it to ourselves to live life fully. I'm learning to "take the high road" and walk away from situations that have traditionally zapped me of my joy. You know what? It feels so damn good to let nasty things go and shift my focus back to the joy and beauty around me.
I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
