Hey, y’all. Happy December 1st. There is an entire month of merriment waiting for us!
The theme of December’s NaBloPoMo is JOY, and it couldn’t be more appropriate. Sometimes, however, joy is hard to realize. There is a lot of negative nonsense all around us, every minute of every day, and trying to find joy might be a more difficult task than usual. I mean, it’s a fact of life: with the good, comes the bad. What makes the difference is what you choose to focus on and devote energy to.
Admittedly, I’m one who can get easily caught up in negativity. It sucks me in; I fixate on it, dissect it, try to make sense of it knowing full well that I can’t, and then when I realize I can’t make sense of it, I go into some kind of rage spiral.
BUT, maybe NaBloPoMo will be a good thing for me this month. This month’s writing prompts focus on, well, JOY! I think taking a few moments out of my day to write something positive will do me (and everyone else for that matter) a world of good. This month’s collection of posts will be a mixture of prompts and a number of personal updates. And in true Leila’s Mixtape form, most posts will include a track or two for your listening pleasure.
Let the blogging begin!
