Joy is usually reserved for the ‘big’ moments. Moments like a new car, house, engagement, pregnancy, job and the like.
It’s also solely thought of as something that is given to you, rather than something you can cultivate for yourself. This is where Little Pockets of Joy comes in.
I believe in en•joy•ment of the mundane, typical, everyday stuff. Because if one day, those things ceased to exist, you’ll quickly realise how much of a gift and a joy it was to have.
Enjoy– ‘in joy’, i.e to be in the joy, to be present with it, to recognise its beauty and what it is to you.
I experience joy when I get underneath my duvet and to express this, I starfish like a maniac (you should try it), simply because I can.
I experience joy when I make a coffee or one is made for me. That first sip is pure pleasure–A hug in a cup.
I experience joy when my partner buys me baked beans from M&S in Central Paris, as it’s not really a thing here. I get to have an English breakfast.
I experience joy in solitude. Quiet time for me is where my energy bar is recharged.
I experience joy when I receive pictures and videos of my nephew. To see him grow is wonderful!
To put it plainly, joy is wherever I set it. It’s available to me and you, at any time and anywhere.
As you continue your week, e(i)n-joy what seems normal and ordinary, and you might find that it’s anything but.
