This world can seem like a dark and scary place. Sometimes, it's all too easy to focus on negative things, filling our minds with an endless supply of sadness and fear. Why do we do that to ourselves? It's like we forget to pay attention to the good things life has to offer. The truth is, in spite of the challenges and heartbreaks, this world is an awesome place! Wherever we look, it's full of things that bring us beauty and joy.
To combat the negativity, it's important to spend time celebrating the things that bring us joy. That's why I love Christa Avampato's new podcast: The JoyProject. In each episode, Christa has a conversation with someone about something that brings them joy, whether it's a hobby (like fostering rescue animals) or a fictional character (like Winnie the Pooh).
Not long ago, I got to talk with Christa about something that brings us both joy: The Great British Bake Off (my favorite reality TV show). We talked about our favorite parts the show, and also about the joys of baking. Check out the podcast episode here. I hope it brings you joy!
Thanks for stopping by!
