Blogging my “J” is for “JOYFUL” Alphabet Story! What do you do JUST for JOY?

When I feel joyful, I uplift myself and others by “paying it forward”…it’s like giving the best unexpected present ever! Paying for food for the car behind me at a fast food drive-thru or for the car behind me at a bridge toll booth! Or giving someone a gift for no special reason!

When I feel INSPIRED, I think of cool things to do like sharing the fun I had hiking up Sugar Loaf Mountain, posting it as “30 Days of Sugar” on Facebook, and then being joined by my Facebook friends from around the world, who were inspired to post their own “sugar” photos of fun!

Blogging my “D” Alphabet Story! Dive right in and share yours!

When I feel daring, I snorkel far out into Kealakekua Bay with my Hawaiian friends to swim with wild spinner dolphins! Yes, and when I feel daring, in the open waters of the Great Barrier Reef, I ask the Australian captain of our sailing ship whether I can take the helm…and he says, “Yes!” And, I do!MHS_Page_06

YOUR TURN!  DIVE RIGHT IN and share your “D” story!
