Please join Bertha’s Joyful Jubilee Facebook event friday, July 25 at 6:00pm - 7:00pm in CDT
Bertha's at it again...hopping on her soapbox...harassing the cat...talking to the flamingos...and spreading joy. Join her for the release of the latest offering in The Bertha Series...Where the Joys Are: Bertha's Guided Journal.
If anyone knows how to inspire, Jane does. She has a way of brighting my mood no matter how dark and frayed. She makes me want to do better and be better. This uplifting journal brings a smile to my face and a definite spring to my step. Jane Carroll and Bertha are liquid joy.
Describing joy brought a joyful feeling to my day. EVERYDAY. It reminded me to look at the bright side rather than going to the dark. This was a pick me up that I did with complete pleasure. The simplicity of it made it an easy task and once I got into it I felt myself relaxing.
There is something soothing about journaling and expressing the good that is just waiting to be discovered. I will continue with these exercises just like doing yoga. It’s in the doing. Actually, putting pen to paper and focusing on what we are grateful for. Bertha and Jane bless us with a better way of looking at life.
Driving up, I couldn’t help but notice that Bertha was rearranging her flamingo display. I mean when someone is in your front yard, wearing lime green spandex capris and a purple tube top, with matching high-heeled sandals and moving big pink plastic birds around, you do tend to pay attention. The last time she had done this, she was coming out of a ‘blue’ spell. I’d been out of town on business for a few days, so I didn’t have a clue what was up. Shifting into park, I opened the car door. “Bertha, what are you doing?”
