Finding Joy in difficult times – Read my guest post at Sizzling Towards 60 & Beyond

Guess who’s guesting over at Sue’s blog today?

Today it’s me as a guest over at Sue’s Sizzling Towards 60 and Beyond, as part of her Ageing Well, Living Well series. Thanks for having me Sue!

I always enjoy being a guest and this was no different, except I wrote this post a few weeks ago before the COVID-19 pandemic was rampant across the world, and the fact that my words are so timely today is really quite serendipitous.

What did I write about?

In my post I shared my thoughts on a range of issues but mainly the need for balance in our lives and finding joy.

I talked about love and the tributes to a friend’s mother at her recent funeral; sadness at how people are mean in sharing their thoughts in comments on social media and about how ‘haters gonna hate’.

I also shared my concerns about becoming a grumpy old lady but have managed to find, and embrace, a new acronym of JOY – Just Older Youth!

Here’s a short snippet:

I know I’ve been upset lately at injustices, discussions on the changing climate, local government issues but I don’t want to become a grumpy old lady, so I have to balance this out with some fun stuff. 

That’s where my quirkiness comes in. My love of jumping in puddles, jumping for joy, telling funny stories but laughing before I get to the punch line, blogging for fun and sharing inspirational quotes, wearing lots of orange, being excitable and enthusiastic!
