17/100 of JOY
“Sometimes your JOY is the source of your smile, but sometimes your SMILE is the source of your JOY.”
-Thich Nhat Hanh
In other words, fake it til you make it.
I started #the#the100dayproject as a way of of documenting my joy, but also knowing that I need to look for the gratitude in every day. Some days don’t have as much sunshine or magic as others.... but those seem to be the REAL days when I need to look for it. It’s there.....we just need to open our eyes. This perfect lotus, right on my school campus. Blink, and you’ll miss it. But it’s a reminder that even in the toughest times, I can fake it til I make it. Just smile, and the joy will come. I promise. 🌼
