God is the madwoman in the attic.
I'm camped out on the threshold with my journal, camera, and plenty of snacks.

welcome! to The Joy Diet book bloggers

We're starting The Joy Diet in The Next Chapter, a book blogging group hosted by Jamie Ridler Studios. This book, and sharing it with a thoughtful, creative group of folks, is such a timely gift for me right now.

I work a 9-5 office job under long glaring fluorescent lights. Not a joy-source. But I've managed to bring into this cold, beige space some of the color & signs that do mean Joy to me.

plants

photos of my loves

Choose Joy. Choose it again. And again.
It starts to show up in more & in unexpected places.


Then log the evidence, to have on hand for the days it's harder to find.

Hey Jenni, Thanks for checking out my post and commenting. It's so interesting to hear when InterPlay pops up randomly! Where do you live? And THANKS for sharing some info about your life through pictures. I love knowing the personal details of the women we're reading along with! Looking forward to more...

Looking forward to experiencing joy with you...we do choose it and I love how you've taken a place where you spend so much time in your day and added the joy!!!

I work an office job, 8:30 to 4:30, and I concur that it's not exactly boiling over with joy. I love what you've done with your cubicle, though!

Anyway, it is nice to meet you. Here's to 10 weeks of cultivating joy, with or without the cubicle!

I love the way you've taken your cubicle and made it your own, filled with things that bring you joy. I really love those prayer flags -- Especially the green one. Your space is just lovely. It made me smile :)

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a supportive comment. I am finally going to sit down and bind my first book today. I'm both looking forward to it and scared of it! I want it to be perfect. Just another example of how I need to get out of my own way and let the process happen.

Here's to joy!

I LOVE your office! I work from home and my "work space" isn't near as inspiring. I'm happy to have you as a companion on this journey. I'm off to redecorate my office.

Peace and goodness to you.
