Finding Joy

There’s this series of pictures I took and whenever I look at them all I can think is joy.

Happiness itself is often subtle and incomplete
— Roxane Gay

These photos make me happy and I am so glad my camera captured the movement perfectly. The quote above by Roxane Gay has me reflecting on happiness. I don’t know if I could do it but I would love to have all this years self portraits reflect that quote. The subtle ways I am happy.

Things that brought me joy this week

Chatting with my mother-in-law on the phone.

A sparkly elephant gif I sent to my sister-in-law.

Chocolate sharks I picked up for my niece and nephew.

The chili I made, the cinnamon buns I burned, the bread I managed.

How this post reminds me of a post I wrote last year - This week I.

Jacquelyn Umof rise & shine morning yoga joy practice.

All the lovely snow we’ve gotten, even if it’s causing a winter weather warning.

What’s brought you joy this week?

I'm a lifestyle blogger, covering deep subjects including body images, battles with food, and overcoming how I was raised. I try to be as authentic as possible and I don’t sugar coat how I see things.
