Day 35 – Finding Connection from a Distance

During this time of social distancing find connection to keep a sense of joy in your life. Join me for the Aravaipa Strong Virtual Race from April 17th to 26th. Let’s run ‘together’ and share our results and our joy of running.

Day 34 – Seek out the positive

This was a reminder that it is important to seek out the positive in our lives when everything else might seem so negative. Celebrate the wins. Seek out the positive. Find joy. Make yourself smile.

Day 33 – Do something for someone else

Helping out those around you will bring a smile to your face and to theirs, adding a little bit of joy is some dark times.

Day 32 – The return of the lost of art of ‘Hello’

When this global pandemic passes I’m making a commitment to continue to say ‘hello, how are you doing?’ to the people that I meet. Not only do I think it helps to knit the fabric of our community together but it also brings me joy.

Day 31 – Finding Joy in Challenging Times

I’m not pretending there is not a global pandemic, but I am going to do my part to bring some positivity to this world.

Day 30 – Finding your Mojo

Sometimes we get lost on the path of the things we are passionate about. If we’re patient we may just be lucky to find the joy again.

Day 29 – A Modern Day Smoke Break

Working and studying inside all day might be equally as harmful to our health as smoking. Taking an old habit and getting up every sixty to ninety minutes, and instead of smoking, connecting to nature might reduce these negative health effects. Plus, bring a positive health effect through joy.

Day 28 – Remembering

Death is hard, but balancing it with the joyful memories makes it just a little easier.

Day 27 – Getting Excited when it Snows

I’m heading out the door to go play in the snow creating an art through the trail I leave behind with my steps. I’m heading out the door filled with joy as I go do this workout.

Day 26 – Celebrating the Little Things

Harper’s small step in training, her graduation from puppy class, reminded me that it is important to take a moment to celebrate the achievement. Trying to get Harper to put on her graduation cap left Dax and I laughing. And really, laughing is one of the greatest expressions of joy.
