Joy is getting lost, being late, giving yourself some slack over it and telling yourself ,”It’s O.K. Happens to everyone sometimes.”  (Really beats having an anxiety attack.)

Joy is also using all the energy you once used to beat yourself up over getting lost and being late and instead using it to attack the ice median in your driveway that has made you park on crazy angles for the last few months.


If you’ve never tried this you probably don’t live in Canada.  If you do live in Canada and still have never given this a go, please go for it.  It’s so intensely satisfying to smash something that’s been annoying you for months and not feel bad about doing it.  Now to get outside and watch those pieces die slowly of heat overdose* –  BWA, HA,HA…

*It’s a balmy 3 degrees Celcius today!
