Find Your Joy
I was listening to someone speak the other day about what’s important in life and what’s not. Something was said that really stood out to me and made me want to remember. It was: “Go find your joy. Whatever that is, go find your joy. Because it’s what you’re going to remember in the end. You’re not going to remember how you worried, the what-ifs, the whys, or who wronged you. It’s the joy that stays with you.”–Sandra Bullock
I’m sure by now you know my joy. I love being home with my family taking care of my house. Homemaking REALLY makes me happy! Andy keeps telling me that I was born in the wrong generation because people don’t care about homemaking like they did 50 or 60 years ago. That doesn’t bother me in the least because I love it and I always have! When I was newly married, I discovered Martha Stewart when she wasn’t very well-known. I thought what she did was so AMAZING, and I hero-worshipped her. I bought every book and magazine she was in and printed out every article I could find. She popularized homemaking again and I loved her for it. I wanted to be just like her.
Birth of Wilma
Fast forward a few decades and life lessons later, and I still love homemaking. It’s because I found my joy that I decided to do something crazy and start a homemaking magazine, Wilma. Who does that? I know it’s not the safe or risk-free thing to do, but it’s my passion and I’m determined to make it work. For all of you who have supported me and encouraged me and better yet, subscribed, I just want to say THANK YOU! Thank you for supporting someone find their joy!
What’s your Joy? I want to hear all about it!
