Diversifying Our Joy Portfolio
Diversify your portfolio, the financial aces say.
The market's an unpredictable place. Don't over-rely on one investment; find multiple places you can get returns.
I've been thinking about how that relates to joy. I've got a few loyal standbys to refill my joy: 1950s country tunes, dried dates, early sunlight smoothing itself across the sky.
But sometimes, the store runs out of dates. Fog fills the morning sky. I over-listen to Patsy Cline.
So, I've been focusing on diversifying my joy portfolio. Which means I'm looking for other things - the smaller, the better - that refill my cup.
Sending short, sweet thank you or love emails, texts, notes. Asking cashiers I regularly see what their name is, then using it. Spending my money at stores owned by goodhearted people I want to support.
I'll keep on looking for more. The world's an unpredictable place, isn't it? Date-outages and fog happen. And the more diversified our sources of joy, the more likely we are to find it.
