“Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day. ” – Henri J. M. Nouwen
Joy can just come out of the blue and be a pleasant surprise but it can also be a habit that we choose, to look for joy when it doesn’t just appear easily.
” Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” ~
It’s possible to choose our general attitude and to pro-act when things aren’t that good.
Scars are beautiful too.
All is merry. All is bright.
What is your instant happiness?! An uplifting song? A delicious drink? Crunchy, colorful leaves on the ground? Warm, sloppy puppy kissies? A cup of coffee at a sweet cafe? A chat with a friend? A funny tv show? A beautiful stranger? A midnight sky full of silvery stars? Early morning meditation? An amazing book?
Eye contact with a beautiful person? A random message?
So much to be Happy about! 😀
” When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” ~

My friend gave me this for Halloween! His niece made it and it was delicious like cookie dough! :-p
“Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home… it’s your responsibility to love it, or change it.” ~
