This post is a little early. I know it’s not quite August yet.
This is the second to the last edition of Quotables. There will be only one “Quotables” post for August. This is one of two! I hope you have enjoyed July with all the different surprise editions. I tried to make it fun and keep it interesting. I wanted to keep it light because September/October will be a bit deeper with focus on mental health during a pandemic.
This post and the next will have quotes from different people about joy. Joy is a topic I love so much. I feel like people don’t discuss joy enough. We all need more light and love right now. 2020 was a tough year for a lot of people. 2021 has been a tough year as well. We are not back to normal yet. My hope and prayers are that 2022 will be a better year for people. I am trying to spread as much joy as I can. I have days when I’m not feeling my best just like everybody else, but I keep going. I try to smile and laugh as much as I can.
