It's a phrase that has been popping up in front of my eyeballs on reader boards, holiday gift wrap and Christmas newsletters. When the Universe chooses to send me messages, I know enough to listen!
I love the fact that each time I saw "bring joy" (or a variation thereof) it resonated so strongly with me. I feel like it chose me rather than vice versa.
Two separate words. It's the "bring" that inspires and challenges me. I have plenty of internal delight in my life and I need to externalize it.
My brain is already whirling with ways to fulfill it: extra-clean surfaces to delight my poor long-suffering husband who lives with my enthusiastically creative messes, small birthday treats for friends near and far, spreading random acts of kindness in unexpected places, fluffing my home and my workplace to provide a nourishing environment, disciplining my inner life to match the outer. Or should that be making my outer jive with my inner? So many possibilities!
So I'm on a mission for Twenty-Thirteen. What a challenge to live up to! Wish me luck.
