In 2018 I tried to blog for 64 days straight. There were 64 days left in the year and I really struggle with consistent reflection on the things in life. The world needed a little more love in it and so 64 Days of Love was created.
I made it 18 days. Which, honestly, was 17 more than any previous try at blogging consistently.
I did not blog at all in 2019. My posts on Twitter and Facebook were significantly down as well. A picture here, a comment there, a lot about Houston Astros games. That’s about it though.
I have spent a fair amount of time reflecting on how I want 2020 to be different than the previous 39 years of my life and it struck me that I need to focus more on finding joy in the things around me. I certainly am not a downer by any means, and I think I bring more joy to those who know me. But there is a lot about 2020 that will be worth celebrating, and there will be a lot of reasons we will NEED to find joy in tough situations.
So my 2020 commitment/resolution/goal is simple. I want to “bring the joy” to those around me. I want to point it out. I want to tell you about it. I want highlight the joy that is surrounding me in my day-to-day life. I want to change the trajectory of my 2020 (and hopefully some of yours) in an unmistakably positive way!
So with that, I am not committing to 64 days, but to a year of documenting joy. Not just here on a blog, but on Twitter, on Facebook, with postcards, with post-its, with anything I can–I am going to #BringTheJoy.
Hopefully more than 18 times this time.
