My first attempt at blogging:
I began thinking about blogging when I saw the movie 'Julie and Julia'. I envied how Julie could just sit down and click out her feelings and thoughts so clearly and openly! My thoughts are like b.b.'s rolling around in one of those little hand held games where you try and maneuver them into a hole. There's SO much noise in my head! I think the first thing I need to do is learn how to calm the playing field... get it level... and let the b.b.'s settle into their own little niches! Until I accomplish that feat, you will have to be patient with my ramblings.
I'm obsessed with joy. I love the word and the thought... I just wish I knew how to find it and hold on to it.
My office is a testament to my need to find joy. Bookshelves lined with wonderfully talented authors and motivational speakers; Joyce Meyer, Wayne Dyer, Steven Covey, the Olsteens, Eckhart Tolle, Tony Robbins... the list goes on and on.
My iPod is crammed with songs about joy, and love, and peace, and over-coming.
I have CDs and DVDs... all promising at least 90 minutes of J-O-Y! But where is it now?
Where - is - MY - joy?
*This is where I should type some deep and insightful thought... something that will cause you to want to come back every day to drink from my wealth of wisdom, and insight, and my ummmm... my joy-full-ness' ! Well dear reader, here's what I've got:
Joy won't come from reading someone's ideas about it. It won't come from listening to someone talk about it, or sing about it. Joy will come NOT as we put motion to our thoughts, but only when we put thought into our motions.
Come on this journey with me, if you too are looking for your 'joy rising'... let's test this theory together!
See you soon!
