Looking at art that I like is another thing that brings me joy.

Whenever you find things that make you smile, make note of them. If it’s an entire category, really make note of that. Then seek it out, spend time with it. Life is too short and too hard to not have moments of joy when you can find them or even arrange them for yourself.

A few things that have made me smile lately:

  • Reading Bex Burgess’s Pauper’s Prince, Vols. 1-3. I can’t wait for the rest of the story.
  • Spending time with my family history. It makes me feel connected to loved ones and to the past.
  • Helping to celebrate some friends’ 50th wedding anniversary. They’ve been married almost as long as I’ve been alive.
  • Finally being able to open the windows and doors. It’s occasionally cool enough for us to do so.

Think about what brings you smiles, makes you happy, even for a moment.
