Change occurs drop by drop, by doing small, repetitive activities.  If you want to infuse your life with joy, then you’ll need to take it one appealing step at a time.


My daughters tease me when I crack myself up with some stupid joke.  Well, this time I’ve inspired myself!  Thanks to the encouragement from others seeking joy too, I’m creating a page of magical droplets to help us all.  Let’s get started.


Marla reminded me of the silly and entertaining movie, Elf, starring Will Ferrell as Buddy.  In the movie, Gimbel’s Manager asked him, “Why are you smiling like that?”  Buddy responds, “I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite!”


Are you smiling?  What makes you smile?  What makes you laugh?


Lighten up and let delight in.

    Watching the wonders of the world makes me smile. I must have been ignoring it lately as I’ve been in a funk and sick lately. The other night something went snap. I’m on my way back. Change is sometimes frustratingly slow. I really need to practice patience. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

    Sometimes change just seems too slow, unless it is in the form of a major unexpected, life-changing event. Then it’s hard.
