JOY is truly one of my favorite emotions, isn’t it one of yours too? JOY is a state of happiness or an expression of delight. Kids have great access to this emotion, and as an adult, somehow JOY doesn’t always feel “appropriate”.
That’s ridiculous. JOY can be brought to everything you do throughout the day. It’s about acknowledging the well-being, success and good fortune in your life, AND it’s also about the anticipation of “getting what you desire”. Which means, that simply by anticipating what you want … you can experience JOY.
Joy is a state you can choose, just because.
- What brings you joy?
- What are you joyfully anticipating?
- What can you appreciate in your life right now?
