Movin’ and Groovin’ Monday: Joy

I know I just brought back Movin’ and Groovin’ Monday but it is going away again and tomorrow’s post will explain my change in plans.

Until then get your boogie shoes on and get dancing or should I say hoppin’. Today’s song will certainly pump you up so you have the necessary energy to tackle your grief, unemployment or any one of life other journeys.


Movin’ & Groovin’ Monday – I Know I Love You

(Author’s note:  Welcome to those of you stopping by from WordPress’s Blogging 101 and/or Writing 101 Challenge.  

JoyReturns is about my adventures through widowhood which includes unemployment and underemployment. Unemployment started 1 year after my husband Joe’s passing.  

Monday’s are not good days to contact people about anything career related.  It is a day for planning your week and endorsing your LinkedIn connections.  

Monday’s are the start of another lonely week for those traveling through grief.  They have to go into work and act like they are alright when they are hurting inside. 

So the “cure” to the grief and unemployment blues…become a dancing machine!  (Disco is one of my joys in life.) That is what Movin’ and Groovin’ Monday is all about – shaking off life’s negativity and getting pumped up to take on the week.)

More David Cassidy and “Family”

C’mon…after last week  you know I had to have you dancing to this song. Now get up and get movin’ and groovin’ so you can tackle whatever journey you are on this week.

During the week remember – I KNOW I love you my dear readers.

Movin’ and Groovin’ Monday – “C’mon Get Happy!”

Movin’ and Groovin’ Mondays are back.  The goal is to get you in the mood to take on the week whether you are on a grief, unemployment or another one of life’s nasty journeys.

So get dancing and then go spread a little love everywhere you go this week.

Movin’ and Groovin’ Monday: Nights on Broadway

I am movin’ and goovin’ and little slower today.  Normally these posts are done a day or two in advance, but life has been anything but normal the past week. You will read all about it starting tomorrow through Thursday.

But in the meantime here is one of my all time favorite BeeGee songs.

Enjoy and then seize every day this week.  Don’t let grief or unemployment stand in your way.

Movin’ and Groovin’ Monday: “You’re a Superstar, That’s What You Are”

Welcome to another Monday, a day filled with possibilities that is the beginning of a week filled with possibilities.

Madonna is here today to get you up and on the dance floor.




“Beauty’s where you find it.”  So where will you find beauty today?

Here’s a hint – look in the mirror.

Whether you are grieving or unemployed, you are beautiful and a superstar.

Now get out their and seize the week.


Movin’ and Groovin’ Monday: “C’mon Shake Your Body, Baby Do That Conga!”

“Everybody gather ’round now” it’s Monday and that means it’s time to get your adrenaline going by movin’ and groovin’. Shake off the grief and/or the unemployment negative self talk.  Remember, “Once the music hits your system, there’s no way you’re gonna stop.”

Enjoy this week’s video by Miami Sound Machine.
