Joy. I strongly believe in the power that being joyful brings to life. If I wasn't joyful, I don't know who I'd be. Joy is life for me, and it's my goal to help everyone find the same peace and comfort that I do through God and Christ, and the joy that the gospel brings to me and my family. 

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, happiness, and God 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 how you perceive things, and try to 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 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.
