Day 7 – Daddio + Daughter Dinner Time

Over delicious food and wine last night I had one of those simple but magical nights – you know the ones that make you smile in the morning and remind you how much joy there is in your life.

Day 6 – Satisfaction from Hard Workouts

Working hard is one thing, working hard with your coach along side you is another – joy^2.

Day 5 – Catching up with Friends

For a blissful 45 minutes we chatted like no time passed. Back in our groove we celebrated moving freely. No better way to start your day than with joy.

Day 4 – Searching for Magic

The way the branches of the old tree protect the new tree. The reflection on the yellow brick wall. The window into the world of convocation hall. This is a place that brings me joy.

Day 3 – Catching a glimpse of sunshine on a rainy weekend

Being outside when Mother Nature shines her light on you for the briefest of moments on a rainy weekend – joy.

Day 2 – Watching Kids do stuff they love

Wide-eyed and eager for the day, this smile on Ella’s face says it all – pure joy.

100 Days of Joy – Day 1

Seeing the love Harper has for Dax, now that is joy.

Playing to your Strengths and Weaknesses

We live in a culture that likes to point out our mistakes, that tells us to be better we need to ‘fix’ all those things we aren’t good at. While fixing our flaws is part of the puzzle, I don’t think it should dominate your story.

We got a puppy!

Meet Harper. I got to thinking that Harper is going to teach me the virtue of patience. She’s going to chew things, probably my running shoes. She’s going to barf, poop and pee on rugs, couches, my bed if she’s really mad!

Goal Setting: Putting Your Events into Effect

It is one thing to have these resolutions and events and another thing to put them into effect, to operationalize what you have set out to do. It’s time to write out your goals for 2020. Play to your strengths, find your weaknesses and work to improve those weaknesses, figure out what makes you jump out of bed in the morning.
