In the intricate tapestry of life, amongst the vast landscapes and towering peaks, often it's the delicate threads of daily delights that paint our days with hues of happiness. Moments, fleeting yet profound, waiting to be noticed, cherished, and remembered.

This ritual, combining age-old wisdom with a gentle daily practice, aims to celebrate these moments.

Through the act of noting down the moments of joy we encounter throughout our day, we weave together a narrative that honours the beauty in the ordinary, the magick in the mundane.

Let's step into this journey of daily recognition, capturing the subtle symphony of joy that plays in the background of our lives.

What You'll Need

  • A journal or notebook, dedicated to this practice
  • A pen or pencil
  • A quiet moment each day


Ritual Steps

Choose Your Journal
Select a notebook or journal that speaks to you, one that feels special and inviting.

This will be the container that holds your daily delights, so choose one that resonates with your heart.


Set a Daily Reminder
In our busy lives, setting aside a regular time each day ensures consistency.

Whether it's the morning’s embrace or the evening's sigh, find a quiet moment to reflect.


Tune Into the Day
Close your eyes and replay the day in your mind.

Look for that moment, no matter how small, that brought a smile to your face or warmth to your heart.


Note Down the Joy
Write down the moments of joy you experiences.

It could be a sentence, a paragraph, or even just a word.

Let your heart guide your hand.


Feel the Gratitude
After writing, take a moment to truly feel grateful for this instance of joy.

Let the feeling wash over you, reinforcing the beauty of the moment.


Monthly Reflection
At the end of each month, revisit your entries.

Immerse yourself in the accumulated joy, appreciating the tapestry of happiness you’ve woven with your daily notes.

This Joyful Journal ritual serves as a gentle reminder that happiness often hides in plain sight, waiting to be acknowledged.

It's not just about creating a list, it's a practice of recognising, cherishing, and celebrating the many, often un-noticed, moments that brighten our days.

So, open your journal, let the words flow, and let every page be a testament to the joy found in daily life.
