In Write Yourself Happy the next topic is to write about something you’re looking forward to. Hard to do when everything is so chaotic and you don’t know what the new normal will look like, or when, yet but I’ll do my best.

Just yesterday I thought back to a monthly smoothie date I had with a friend. We never knew how we would fill the time or what we would chat about but it was natural and fun and we always filled two hours with stories and laughter. That’s what I am looking forward to. Being able to sit across the table from a friend and try a new smoothie, or maybe the usual, but always with spinach.

And to travel to New Brunswick to see family again to catch up. To roam the stores and shop for deals on things we don’t really need but bring a smile to our face. I will feel joy when I can meet up with a good friend and give her a hug.

Joy has always been found in the little things, the brief moments that seem to last forever but once this is over with, joy will be found in everything. In the freedom of going up the aisle at a grocery store without having to look at the ground for directions and buying craft supplies without having to plan in advance and knowing what you need instead of browsing and being inspired.

Joy will be the new normal, whenever that may be.

Thanks for reading,
Sarah Butland
