Share the Joy: Joy and Frustration

I thought I'd have a photo of me 
with Brené Brown
to share this morning,
but I'm still waiting for the camera pics
to show up in my e-mailbox.

Brené Brown's talk on Daring Greatly

gave me great joy -
she's warm, funny, grounded,
and one of the world's best story tellers.
Plus I happen to agree with her
about vulnerability
down to
"If you don't do vulnerability, 
then vulnerability's going to do you."

If you haven't discovered her yet,
you're missing out.
You can remedy that by watching here

What I don't enJOY
are the vagaries of sending camera pics
and wondering where in heck they went.

Found the ones I thought I'd sent from my gmail account
sitting unsent in my drafts file
even though I clicked the send icon.

The ones I sent via my Yahoo mail took over an hour
to finally materialize.
What's THAT about?
I thought the internet was all about
instant gratification.

And I'm the original
"God grant me patience and I want it now" girl.

What's your source of JOY?

Share it.

1. do a post that tells and shows what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post and paste it into 
the Mr. Linky box along with your info.

3. Visit other players and let their joy infect you.
Leave them a comment because everyone
 enJOYS getting positive feedback.

Let's keep the epidemic of JOY going!

oh yes I remember this video now... I'm all about vulnerability:-) It is the most loving way to meet ourselves and others in the world... and I really don't have a choice any more... I could harden my heart I suppose, but my body is vulnerable anyway, so I choose to just be real in my heart as well.
