"The sun does not shine for a few trees and flowers, but for the wide world's joy."
Henry Ward Beecher
Can there be a better feeling on earth than when your heart is full of happiness; when youre loving the life that you live and living the life that you love? When youve got the world by the string and everything is going your way, theres seems no limit to the amount of enjoyment life provides.
But living a life filled with gladness is not always so easy nowadays. After all, there are so many things that can steal our joy if youre not careful. The key is to not to allow them an opportunity to do so.
"Joy is not in things, it is in us."
Each of us were born to live a life filled with joy; a life overflowing with happy times and joyful occasions. Yet far too often our joy seeps away, slowly but surely siphoned off by lifes toils and troubles. In its place, a troubled heart remains; a heart that desperately searches to reclaim lifes magical moments.
We sometimes forget that the spirit of joy lies inside us, and as such, can never be taken from us. Regardless of how low we have sunk or how much adversity we have endured, a joyful heart still beats within. And it is in that joy that we can turn our lives around, making them everything we have ever dreamed they could be.
"Dont let anyone steal your joy."
You simply cannot and should not allow anyone or anything to keep you from living the life you deserve. A life full of adventure; a life full of excitement. A life turbo-charged with all of the fun, happiness and fulfillment you can handle. A life where you get to chase your dreams with all of the fervor you can muster. A life full of joy.
"Fill your life with as many moments and experiences of joy and passion as you humanly can. Start with one experience and build on it."
Joy is not an emotion that never wastes away. As a matter of fact, just the opposite holds true. Youll find that the more joy that you feel every day, the more joy you will have in reserve. And youll discover that the more joy you share and shower on those all around you, the more joy you will have to give away again and again.
Sir James M. Barrie said, "Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves." You do need to fill your life with joy. Live it, love it and then give it away to everyone you are privileged to meet. Joy truly is a gift that keeps on giving.
"Joy is the feeling of grinning on the inside."
Why not decide once and for all to live your life the way it was meant to be lived where happiness and joy are the name of the game? You can start by grinning on the inside first. And while youre at it, why not start feeling real great on the inside as well?
You should allow your heart, that heart of gold that holds so much happiness deep down inside you, to fill to overflowing with unlimited joy. Then, when your heart can hold no more, bring all of this joy to the outside and begin brightening the world all around you.
Heres wishing you the most joyous of days.
The Bottom Line: You can bring joy to the world one joyous moment at a time.
