Things that Brought me Joy, Vol. 7

Things That Bring Me Joy, volume 7

I want to identify joyful things in my life because joy keeps me sane. For me, joy includes things that make me smile or laugh, as well as things that make me feel seen, appreciated, accomplished, present, and connected. I easily forget about and gloss over things that bring me joy, and I don’t want to take those things for granted anymore. Hence, this feature.

This Comment from a Friend

I cannot tell you how much this made my day, possibly my week. If you see sex toys and think of me in a non-sexual way, I’m living my best life. (Click that link, use the code WHOLEDAMNWOMAN5, and you get 5% off!)

This Space Brought Quadruple Joy

This is Zenko Tea in West Des Moines, Iowa. I love the space. I love learning a friend works and sells her macarons there. I loved the bubble tea. And I loved meeting a different friend and chatting for a few hours for a wonderfully brain-stimulating conversation.

The Joy of Writing Erotica

I purchased How to Write Erotica by Rachel Kramer Bussel, and I’ve been doing a prompt a day to get me back in the habit of writing fiction regularly. I lose myself when I play with writing, and I hope you’ll be able to see some finished stories soon!

The Joy of Introducing Hubster to the Reverse Dictionary

I’ve been using this for years, but somehow I’d never mentioned it to Hubster. So, if you’ve never heard of it, I want you to know it exists. Anytime you can’t think of a word, try it. Seriously saves some brain energy and introduces you to new words.

Your Donations

My sister’s GoFundMe is just over $3,400! She has a long way to go, but someone donated $200, and I could not be more grateful. I’m considering a giveaway if you donate, so please let me know if you want that! I’m not asking you to donate, but I am asking you to share the link, please.

The Joy of a Smiley Kyle

Baseball season is getting even closer, and that means I got to see my favorite player do an interview. Kyle Hendricks gets shit for being emotionless. Yeah, I’ve never seen him smile this much!
