Joy Bombs Volume Tre

My optimistic nature is something I love about myself. Sounds conceited, but it's the truth. When life gets tough I cry, wallow and then turn to the good as quickly as I can. I try to find the happy and J O Y in the every day and count my blessings. Ninety-nine times out of a hundred my mood changes, my outlook gets brighter and I realize life is pretty freaking great. I wrote this post last week after my tough news because I needed a refresh.

Current joy bombs at the moment:

.:. freshly hung paintings bringing a sense of home to a house.

.:. the smell of flowers after the rain.

.:. faux flowers in crystal vases adding a pop of color.

.:. surprise days of no humidity and 80 degree sunshine.

.:. the unexpected compliment from a fellow instructor about my class. #smilesohard

.:. penpal letters in the mail.

.:. FaceTime with family.

.:. finding extra money in old jackets, jeans and shorts.

.:. DMV visits which last less than thirty minutes.

.:. favorite show marathons on a lazy, rainy weekend.

.:. having your ideal teaching schedule line up for the next quarter at the gym.

What are joy bombs in your life right now?


  1. Send some of those no humidity days my way please!!

  2. It's so easy to find joy in the present moment but too often, people overlook them because they're so busy looking in the past or worrying about the future. My current joy: being able to stay at home and relax all day if i wanted to!! work f*ckoff time rules :D

  3. You need to add this to my Thankful thursday - all the JOYOUS things - much to be grateful for.

    YEP - I'm with you 100 on the tv marathons on a lazy day. Being a human slug is wonderful sometimes

  4. NOTHING beats FaceTime with family. Well... maybe actual face time! ;-)

  5. FaceTime with family is amazing! I always look forward to that.

  6. Joy bombs haaha I could use a few those and on that note three days ago I found $10 in the pocket of a pair of jeans!

  7. Love all these things - especially that no humidity thing!! That's a blessing in June! I need to get to my joy bombs. I've been so stressed out lately that I just hate myself.

  8. A good old summer thunderstorm is making me happy right now. I love when the days are bright and sunny but when it gets dark and thunders when I'm cooking dinner? I love it.

  9. All things rain & thunderstorms make me happy.
