I will not get my new cast wet for 14 more days. Good lord. I will not stop wearing the orthopedic boot earlier than I am supposed to. I will not whine about sponge baths. I will rejoice in hot water from a basin, a lovely loofah, and orange and honeysuckle body wash. I will cut my hair very short if I have trouble with it for the next few weeks or so (sponge bath = bad hair).

I read an article on yoga.com about joy is found within, not from what is going on in your life or health: joy in spite of your situation or condition. It really inspired me. I intend to meditate towards joy from within more. Pray more. Give of myself more without having to be asked. Do little things that make other people smile or feel special.
