Fill the cracks with joy.

If I were my own best friend I would suggest to myself to…


fill the cracks with joy.

***Life gets really busy and sometimes it seems as if there is no time left for anything fun or joyful. The minutes, hours, days may stack up and start to look like a solid brick wall. But even the most solid brick wall has cracks. And that is where joy can seep in and take root. 

Maybe it is only for two minutes or maybe it is for twenty, but I bet you could find just a little more time in your day to fill with joy. And once you do, on a regular basis, it is amazing what that little bit of joy can become… 

Similar to water running over rocks, the bricks of life erode and slowly there is a little more space and a little more time for joy to seep in on a little more regular basis. 

Simply put: en-joy life! 

Find a spark.

If I were my own best friend I would remind myself to…


…find a spark.

***Sometimes life is scary. It’s overwhelming to look at everything and figure out how to balance it. Sometimes it feels like a house of cards that could topple at any time. And that is when it is most important to find a spark. 

Find that intangible thing that keeps you focused. Keeps you going. Keeps you sane. Find that thing in the midst of life’s chaos. And hold on to it. Keep it alive. 

That way, if the house does topple, you still have the spark. You still have the essence of that thing that means the most. And from there you can rebuild or start over.
