Random Thing That Makes Me Happy

A Blank Slate

Since this blog exists in part to chronicle my attempts at expanding my joy, I thought it was appropriate to take time once a week to identify something specific that makes me happy.

One of those things is a blank slate.

I get excited by new beginnings.  Everything is possible when you have a new year, a new month, a new day.  I rejoice in the ability to recreate myself each morning.  I’m calmed by the fact that when I screw up, there’s always a chance to start over.

We can always start fresh.  For me, that is definitely something to be happy about!

And for a lighthearted moment, Jeremiah’s “Conversation with my 12-year-old Self”

If I could talk to my 12-year-old self, I think I’d tell myself not to worry too much about the move.  It will take a while, but eventually you’ll learn to love that place.

Anything you would tell your younger self?
