Mondays full of Joy...


Happy Monday dolls!! I hope your weekend was grand. The weather certainly picked up here and was so sunny and bright, I loved it. Though, the wind is still rather brisk, I did need to put on a different jacket to keep from roasting. It's so great to see the sun and flowers trying to grow through...though I know we are still on our way to full blown spring. The days won't seem so long and tiring now & we can spring into action and feel happier. Sometimes we find it hard to find joy in things, we let other's negatives bring us down and steal our joy, but we must keep joy close at hand, because sometimes it's our own joy that gets us through. I hope you find joy in every day from something....joy is a precious thing, that can be found in the smallest places, but bring the biggest outcomes...I hope that happens for you! Have a great Monday!

  3. "Find the joy in the ordinary" - Haven't seen that one before, that sure is a good one!

    I've just found a little joy in reading this with my cup of tea though I woke up feeling poorly and powerless, so thanks x

    Happy Monday Kizzy, lots of smiles and happy thoughts to start off the week xx

  6. Inspiring post! I love the quote about dishing talking about our problems and sharing our joys instead. That's one of the reasons I blog and it really works, as it makes me happy to remember nice traveling moments :)

    Have a great Monday you too!

  18. Sometimes I get SO tired of those kind of people who only complain about things all the time...It becomes like a habit if you do too often. It IS good getting to ventilate bad things that are happening to you, but when your done complaining for a few minutes - move on to better conversations! :) There ARE more good things happening around us than we think, just because we're so busy being grumpy about the bad stuff...I managed to make people smile last Friday - with the good old glitter-method! I did a burlesque performance in which I pour glitter over myself in the end. Even if I tried to get most of it off myself before I changed to my normal clothes, you could still see which people I had hugged afterwards. Haha! But when they saw they were sparkling with my glitter, they ll looked so happy! :D xx

  36. Kizzy, this is right on girl! There's too much negativity, negative people, and negative vibes in this world. Girl, I try and look for something positive every single day. Some people try to steal your joy! Always be strong and say you can't affect me. HAHAHAHA Loved this!!! Come to think of it, I haven't made a root beer float in a long time either. HAHAHAHA It's a HAPPY drink!
