Hello November and welcome back to Collectivitea! I took a few days off after the 21-day gratitude challenge to mull over what I wanted to do next. Keeping a gratitude journal and completing the challenge was both enjoyable and motivational. It was almost as if taking the time to write about what I was thankful for doubled my happiness. It also brought home that I love to write and take pictures. Taking time to do either makes my day more joyful and on the days when I just move from one to-do after another, I feel cut off from this source of joy. I believe that this joy is really where the secret to a happy life lies, and I want to explore and learn more about it every day.
We all have things to do on our daily lists that are non-negotiable like going to work or taking the kids to school. I am adding and committing to a new non-negotiable item on the list- to engage with my creative side for 365 days in a row and to share it here. 365 days of creativity! That sounds like permission to have fun! Yay! Read more.
