I Feel Joyfulicious!
I celebrated Joy Rebel Day today and it was incredible!
The day started at Safehouse Center , a local shelter that helps domestic violence and abuse victims. I entered their welcoming lobby that was decorated with colorful shirts and blankets made by some of the residents that they’ve helped. I donated a big, cheery polka dot gift bag of shampoo, lotions, baby things and 2 pretty totebags that my Mom made. The staff was incredibly friendly and grateful!
With a handful of coins and my pocket full as well, I scattered change around for people to find all day. It was so much fun watching a little boy’s excitement when he found a small pile of money I’d left behind! At the entrance to a restaurant, I’d left a long trail of coins. With no one around and me watching in the car, I saw a man thrilled to collect the found little treasures!
I created a bunch of colorful joy notes to leave around here , there and everywhere! That last note I tucked in the back of this sweet, older man’s wheelchair. And, someone that I know just may find a couple in their mailbox in the morning!
I drew some sidewalk chalk messages, mailed a surprise package to a friend that lives far away and drove 40 minutes away to the shelter where I adopted Isabella kitty . There I donated a big bin full of dog and cat food and treats!
I ended Joy Rebel Day spontaneously treating myself to a pedicure and sharing my day with you!
~ It was a wonderful, joyous time ~
