Happy New Year!

Wishing all of you a very Happy New Year!  

This past year seemed to be a tough one for many of us.  I saw many comments (in fact, I made some myself) that expressed relief that the year was finally ending.  As I started thinking about these feelings, it surprised me because I don't usually wish my life away.  Each and every day is precious to me.

I also have been thinking a lot about writing.  I was going to participate in NaNoWriMo where you write every day during November to create a novel.  I totally bombed!  I realized that, while I LOVE writing, I don't have a compelling need to write a novel.  However, I DO need to write.

Many of you know that I believe in positivity.  I strive every single day to find joy in my life.  Sound easy?  Well, some days it's really hard.  However, I have committed to finding joy every single day; so I work at it!  I have used Facebook to try to spread joy and positive messages-to lift people up or make them laugh.  It's been great!  However, I want to do more.

So I have decided to combine all of these things.  I am going to try writing this blog more.  I am setting a goal of posting 3 times a week.  While I am hopeful that 2017 will be a fantastic year, I believe that this may be a difficult year for our country irregardless of your personal politics.  However, I don't want to buy into the negativity.  I want to write about finding joy even in the midst of struggles, disappointments, and troubling times.

So, if you want to join me in my journey, check out my blog posts for 2017.  I have a strong belief in respecting everyone's right to their opinions.  We may not always agree, but I am always open to new and/or differing viewpoints, so feel free to comment. I will try to share my joy and will always ask you:

Have you found your joy today?
