Yesterday on Your Caregiving Journey, Holly, who cares for her husband and I had an interesting discussion about joy. We wondered if, in a tough situation like caregiving, you can move from sadness to joy? (You can read more about our show and listen to the podcast here.)
Holly and I will continue this conversation during our next show (September 15 at 10 a.m. ET). In preparation for our next show, we’d love to hear your definition of joy. I thought it would be fun to create definitions in six words. A six-word definition of joy could be:
The kids laugh, my heart sings.
I write and forget time ticks.
Eyes closed, dreaming of next begins.
The release of grudge allows joy.
Your definition can focus on caregiving or not–it’s about when or how you feel joy. You can use your definition to begin creating your vision board of joy. (Read ejourneys’ post to see the vision board she created for joy.) And, be sure to send me photos of your vision board which I’ll add to Pinterest.
I look forward to reading your definitions of joy.
