Share the Joy Thursday: Being Brave With Hard Big Changes

Writing a post about joy first thing on a Thursday morning sets the intention for joy for the whole rest of the day. It is a beautiful spiritual practice, and I'm grateful to Kim and Meri for thinking of it. 

Today I opened up and trusted someone.

Today I started making Two Hard Big Changes...changes I will tell you about later, when I am ready.

Today I truly am filled with joy, and even happiness as well.

As always, this Thursday I share the joy of:

Being alive still another day
Anticipating the day as being "good" :)
Being able to see
Feeling like we are all connected (because we are)

If you are reading wish you JOY!

Had an enJOYable evening. We picked blueberries and then met friends at a winery we like and listened to the guitarist/singer who was there entertaining everyone during Happy Hour.

When you're ready to tell about your changes, I'll be ready to hear about them.

I'm signed in from my other blog but it's still ... ME! :) xo

Thank you, each and every one of you, for your support and encouragement. I so want this to be real, so I'm going to wait just a big to share this with you when I'm sure--absolutely sure--that I can stick with them--that they are real! I think they are, but I don't KNOW they are, so we'll see. I have belief and faith in myself.

That saying that "the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior"--I don't know how I feel about it. I know it's true in so many applications, yet it seems stifling at the same time. Many people DO change. I know I have and I want to continue to. I need to believe in myself in order to do that, to believe that I can do things I have never done, things that no one but me might think I can do.

I will blog about this. Again, your support means the world to me. Peace and love and a wonderful weekend to each of you, xoO
