For the month of December, I’ll be participating in Reverb 10. Each day gives a new prompt, which is a chance to reflect on 2010 and manifest what’s next in 2011.

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: Brené Brown)

This year has been filled with ordinary joy for me, so it’s really difficult to pick just one:

  • Watching Lulu and Minnie (my sister’s dog whom I’m dogsitting for a few days) chase each other through the house as I write this.
  • Watching Minnie & Lulu play/wrestle/rough house with each other. These two play together better than they play with any other dog, and it’s absolutely adorable seeing them together.
  • I’m thrilled that they’re going to be able to play all day, every day in 2011.

  • Spending a quiet night talking to my sister about reality tv on Bravo as we watch Shep and Tiffany Watch TV. (My sister doesn’t really watch tv at all, so it was hilarious trying to explain The Real Housewives to her).
  • In 2011, LC and I will be able to spend so much more time together, and I am so thankful for that.

  • A fridge fully stocked with healthy, good-for-me choices.
  • Since I always do well on with my weight loss on the weeks that I’ve planned, prepared, and stayed organized with food, I’m going to make srue that I keep the fridge, freezer, and pantry “healthy” every day in 2011.

  • Cooking a low-calorie, healthy meal that also tastes delicious.
  • I stopped cooking much for myself in the latter part of this year, but in 2011 I’m going to strive to cook more often, even if it’s for myself.

  • Moving my body every day makes me slow down and concentrate on only me.
  • This is going to become a regular, daily habit for me in 2011.

  • Stepping on the scale and liking what I see.
  • In 2011, I’m hoping to like what I see on the scale a lot more often.

  • Taking Lulu on a walk, anytime!
  • I relish my walks with Lulu, and I look forward to 365 more of them in 2011.

What are your Ordinary Joys?
