Live With Joy
Joy. We are in constant need of it. Inside are a few original poems celebrating Joy, happiness, love, and all sorts of other things.
What's the meaning of life? I'm not positive, but I think it has to do with Joy. Everyone's life is even more meaningful if they can find Joy and happiness throughout it. How do you find Joy in your life? It's all about perspective. An optimist can find Joy and happiness in practically everything because that's what they focus on. Pessimists tend to be more realists, and that's okay, but being happy doesn't mean you live in an alternate reality. Change your point of view and how you perceive things, and try and look for the Joy in life.
"I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel so bad." -The Sound of Music
"...Find out where joy resides, and give it a voice far beyond singing. For to miss the joy is to miss all." -Robert Louis Stevenson
Find the joy in your everyday lives, even if it's hard. Then write about it. Keep a gratitude journal or something along those lines to help focus your perspective on Joy. Then live it. Live with Joy, don't just notice it. Live it. Make Joy become your habits, your everyday lifestyle. It will reap plentiful rewards.
Next few subjects I'm thinking of writing about, camping (campfires to be specific), sunlight, and kindness. Thanks for reading, have a fantastical day, and #spreadthelove.
