The Plot To Steal Joy: Day 11

Day 11 Unfolds:

What you want isn't what you want.

What you want isn't shiny, expensive or showy.

What you want doesn't yell for attention.

What you want isn't the social commodity of cash, credit and career.

What you want doesn't shout from the mountaintop.

What you want is something deeper.

It's a still, quiet voice that nudges you gently; so still and quiet you often overlook its importance.

What you want is a deep connection with people that loves and a community that cares.

No amount of cash, assets, riches, fame or success could replace the innate desire within each and everyone of us for love and community.

I've been there. I've groveled in lack. I've found comfort in abundance. Yet I found no joy in either.

Instead, I've found joy in a purpose-driven life surrounded by a healthy, sincere and caring community.

The score today?

Joy: 1. Purpose: 1

My husband and I visited a sweet tiny model house (640 sqft) built by BluHomes on Mare Island, Vallejo, CA. What captivated me about the model house isn’t merely the quality prefabricated build and exquisite interior finishes; rather, it is that inexplicable sense of peace and joy that transcend understanding. It’s almost as if the house is beckoning you home, literally. I turned to my husband and asked him, is it at all possible that living in a home like this, a couple would quarrel less often, because the atmosphere in the home promotes harmony and tranquility? He was at a lost for words. I think he agreed with me.
