My recent blog post on being There are difficult times shirt has reached far corners of the earth this week. I’ve heard from many people who are struggling. Late on Tuesday night, the desperation in a woman’s message compelled me to ask her to try something. This is what I suggested: Tomorrow I would like you to keep a sticky note in your pocket. Make a tally mark each time you notice joy – meaning, when you see it, feel it, create it, or choose it. Notice it, and make a mark on the paper. Do it not for anyone else to acknowledge, do it for yourself. Do it because noticing joy makes you feel better inside, no matter what anyone else is doing or not doing.

Joy is yours for the taking. We all have a There are difficult times shirt. What we do with them is up to us. My goal is to seize as much joy as I can and let no one sabotage it, especially me. At the end of the night, look at that sticky note. If there is only one tally mark, that is still a success. You noticed joy. It exists. Your day had a moment of joy, and that is worth celebrating. I would love to know how this experiment goes. I would love to know about your moment(s) of joy. You are not alone. I heard back from her yesterday, and she has given me permission to share her results with you: Today was a good post-it day! I kept track of joy, and it started first thing when my almost 4-year-old daughter climbed into my lap for a morning snuggle.
