I realized recently that I’ve been slacking in writing something in response to the blooms I pick each week from my little watering can of prompts. It’s not like I haven’t been pulling one each week, although I think I have missed a week here and there. When I received these my instructions were to use “as needed” and at the time, once a week seemed like the right cadence. However, I’m not as needy as I used to be.
This week’s bloom reminded me to “Make time for the things that bring me joy.” That’s exactly what I’ve been doing. I’ve made time for writing, reading, painting, music, yoga, sunshine, cooking, walking. As a result I’ve been laughing, living, and loving.
Here are just a few examples of the things that are bringing me joy these days (in addition to the people in my life.)
