What Brings You Joy?
By Laura Kelly-Pifer
Have you ever thought about what brings you joy?
I’ve been doing A LOT of thinking about it lately, especially in the wake of so many things that are going on in our world that are so tragic. I think that far too often, we get too busy to enjoy the little things in life. It happens.
When I look up the word “joy,” Webster’s Dictionary defines it as a feeling of great happiness.
For many people, the thought of being happy is just a dream. But, it doesn’t have to be. Joy can be found all over.
It’s another person’s smile.
It’s your little pup who fighting falling asleep and looks so darn adorable as he tries to keep those heavy eye lids from closing.
It’s the first bite of an AMAZING meal that you just made.
It’s your child telling you that YOUR homemade soup is better than canned soup.
It’s seeing a far away friend’s little one in your facebook newsfeed.
Or, coming across this random video when searching online earlier.
All of these are examples of joy. And they are things that personally have brought me joy over the last few days.
While life is never going to be 100% joyful, we can embrace the little moments and allow them to give us the happiness we deserve.
So, my friend, what brings you joy? I’d love to hear back from you.
