As I continue on my second week of consciously living a joyful life, I find it interesting that the same things that I am grateful for are the ones that also bring me joy. I love nature and I love looking at the sky and trees. It has been rainy and cold here for quite awhile. The other day when the sun came through the clouds and lit up my living room I realized how happy I felt seeing the sunshine. It was a moment I will remember. So for me sunshine equals joy.
While I agree with the quote above that I would like my life to be filled with as many moments of joy as possible, I am not always sure that I can create those moments. I would like to try but I also want to celebrate the spontaneous moments that are unexpected and unplanned. I want to celebrate the sudden burst of sunshine that fills a room, the shared cup of coffee with a friend, and the laughter that always comes with a visit from my grandsons. I believe that awareness is the key to living a joyful life. Recognizing and celebrating the joyful moments that come with each day is the first step to building a life that is filled with joyful experiences and moments. So for now I am going to live more mindful of what is bringing me happiness and joy and slow down enough to truly enjoy those special moments in time.
