    "Make JOY your compass today."
    As I read The book of joy, I am reminded of all the simple ways to uncover joy...

    What brought you JOY: Week one
    What brought you joy is my weekly inspiration to infuse my ONE LITTLE WORD in 2017. Like gratitude, I believe joy is a practice that is often neglected.

    "In order to succeed we must first believe that we can" ~ Niko Kazantzakis

    ~John Bingham
    The courage to start

    "If you can't find joy in the path you are on and what you are working towards, how do you expect to find joy once you get there?"
    Joy beneath the fog
    On my early morning run the fog moved in blanketing me with an eerie feeling of unknown as it smothered my view. Like the anxiety that often complicates the future, delivering a sting of doubt while searching for stability, forcing admittance...
