Let the happiness in...

As I did for 2009, I've chosen a word to symbolize my touchstone for 2010. It was harder this time narrowing the word...I had it down to "JOY" & "PLAYFULLNESS"....but it wasn't until I was flipping through magazines for my dream board images that I realized JOY was speaking to be heard more. Here's the top of the canvas that I plan to turn into my new header:


In keeping with the JOY theme, I've joined "The Next Chapter: The Happy Book" offered by Jamie Ridler, our guru of on-line inspirational book clubs and all around creative coach. I just received the email confirmation today that I'm 23rd out of 27 in my group (the Glee Circle), and while the suspense is going to drive me batty, I can't wait until I receive the book, it's going to be busting with all version of happiness from everyone else before me (it's a mail-around group, go check out the link for more information)! And by then I hope to have a firm grasp on how playing = joy in my life!

All these versions of JOY are very serendipitous on my journey this year...I feel my heart open more and more with it all.

In keeping with the theme, here is one of my fave musicians singing about his version of happy (listen to the song, forget the video):
