Last year, I created a mailing list. I even created a domain name for it, as I so loved its name: Small Joyful Things.

And then nothing happened with that initial enthusiasm. I was just too afraid to do anything with it.

All the whatifs that swirled around my head when it came to creating my mailing list.

In short, I didn’t trust my own path, my own self, my joy.

And then, Joy chose me

Then this year started with a bad pain flare on day 1. I had decided that JOY would be my word of the year the day before and I knew 2020 would be awesome!

But, it started with pain.

On the second day of 2020 I created Leap to Joy, and started a mailing list to go with it.

It still didn’t feel right.

Until I ran into the website I’d made for the list earlier this week and suddenly all the puzzle pieces fell into place.

I couldn’t stop smiling. I created the mailing list anew, and now, here it is in all its glory.

I would love it if you’d sign up. You get a free journal and I send out newsletters every Friday, and in them, I include small, joyful gifts like poems, musings, new projects, art journal pages and anything else I can think of.

I’m so happy I could dance.
