#Reverb10 - Ordinary Joy

December 27 – Ordinary Joy
Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year?
(Author: BrenĂ© Brown)

I had breakfast with an old friend the other day. It wasn't anything special... just coffee and breakfast at a local shop. We sat for an hour, chatted about life, and just enjoyed catching up after not really talking for over a year. It was pleasant. And it set me up for a pleasant morning.

I went home after breakfast, sat outside in the perfect 60 degree weather on my back porch. I wrote and read for a few hours. Just me. It was completely ordinary, but gave me great joy.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: spending time alone is one of my greatest joys.
