Shot of Joy

These are little love notes to the universe. Our energy has a way of shaping our experiences. If we give our positive energy then our experiences tend to be more positive. The same for negative energy. Every convinced yourself that a situation was going to have a negative outcome before it happened and when the situation happened it did? By encouraging happiness and love the universe, the Earth, will send that back to you. You get what you put out there.

Stairway to Bliss

~ Waking up the birds singing in the morning ~ Having warmer days ~ Glimpsing the sun between the showers ~ The pink blossoms on the trees ~ Portland in the Spring, even if it’s muddy ~ Farmer’s Market bounty ~ Tulips are in season ~ Having tea most mornings

~ My weekend brunch tradition with Vahid ~ Finding the best hot chocolate in town ~ Frequenting Powell’s Books ~ Reading so many good books ~ Learning, I’ve really missed it

~ Trying to focus my day on being happier ~ Knowing that it’s okay to fail because tomorrow is always a new start ~ Letting the frustrations about my current employment go ~ Knowing that new things are coming

What is bringing you joy lately?


  1. What a serene view that is of the beach and ocean.

    What is bringing me joy? Counting the days until my first vacation this year. Taking Reba to San Francisco (her first time in the city)

    1. San Fransisco is one of my favorite cities! You guys will have so much fun! Yay to Reba getting to visit it! If you can squeeze it in go to Golden Gate park, there’s a herd of buffalo (maybe bison) that roam around there. I’ve never been myself but it’s high on my list of things to do.

Let me know what you think!
