Feeling Joy

Feeling shiny this morning, and I hope you are, too! It’s a beautiful day here at the barn watching Brady ride.

I’m enjoying loving on this little orange kitty, too. (His name is Chip. His buddy running around here, the white kitty, is Queso. So cute!) Breeze is keeping a close eye on them. A moment ago, they were frolicking and jumped…and Breeze jumped! Scared her! Too funny!

A friend posted this morning that she was working on a few projects for work, loving life, and doing what she wanted to do. Yes, Girl!

Doing what you want to do is everything. In the midst of praying for an end to my funk, I’ve been super diligent about praying for anything (or any person) bad for me to be removed from my life and anything (or any person) that is good to be added.

It’s been pretty awesome to watch people go, to watch things fall away. Any other time, I would be fretful about a dancer leaving the studio, worried over why a “friend” won’t respond to my text or call. I would be “spooked” over little things, like Breeze was by the kitty. Not anymore.

It’s been miraculous to watch people show up, to find joy and peace in new things. Happiness is temporary and dependent on circumstances. Joy is the real deal, a deliberate effort, and recognizing that I am blessed.

I hope today YOU are able to do what you want to do. Make it happen! I hope you’re surrounded by good and that the bad falls away. I hope this cool breeze is blowing on your face, you get to feel the warmth of this sun, and you have real joy.

It’s soooooo good to be out of the funk… and with kitties. 💜
