**As a belated 2015 New Years Resolution, I decided I would write a daily (or, almost daily, I know some days I just won’t be able to find the time) blog answering a thought provoking question from a long list of questions I found here in a quest of self exploration.
Today’s Chosen Question :
What does your joy look like today?
Today is definitely a day to take pleasure in the small things. I get to start my dream job in a few days and I am so unbelievably excited, and so beyond lucky that I stumbled into this at literally the most perfect time in my life ever, a time when i really needed something like this to happen for me.
I take joy in going out to grab a bagel and coming back in the door to have my dog crying and jumping all over me, having missed me horribly in the ten minutes it took for me to get a bagel. Dogs are amazing that way… how much they love you and how they just want you around literally 24/7. They don’t judge you, they don’t take advantage of you, they don’t stab you in the back, they don’t trash you, you are perfect in their eyes and they don’t care what dumb mistakes you might make or anything else. I look at my sweet puppy and I am so grateful that if people can’t be like that, at least she can.
I take joy in the people I am allowing in my life. I am a bit hyper-vigilent right now because after what happened with my ex-roommate, I am ten thousand percent done with dealing with people like that and I don’t want any of it in my life. I watch how the people I interact with speak about others because that is definitely how they will speak about me when I am not around. The friends I am surrounding myself with now are smart, kind, put together people and frankly… you as a human being adept to your surroundings. I hang around people who are the kind of people I want to be, which is something that I haven’t done until recently. I am meeting up with one of them to co-write a screenplay we are working on and thats exciting to me, thats joyful.
I am really embracing the small blessings that come into life just by being positive and realizing you deserve good things while refusing to allow negative people to effect you or bring you down. So yeah, my joy today looks pretty awesome!
