A rather wonderful side effect of posting my #DailyJoy has been that people have been sharing their own with me! Last week I received a photograph of a very cosy looking vest in my DMs with the message ‘My dose of #DailyJoy. Finding a vest that I have been looking for for ages!’ I absolutely love this example of disproportionate joy – that joy that might seem like nothing to someone else but totally makes your day. The excellent Kristen Kalp says that hers is reading really crappy magazines in the supermarket without buying them. Yesterday I watched a student colouring in with a sharpie by dividing a big shape into little sections and really carefully filling them in one at a time – even just watching that was disproportionately joyful!

I would genuinely love to hear more about your disproportionate joy!
