Joy: (noun) A feeling of great pleasure and happiness.
When it comes to finding your own joy -as with everything else- balance is key. You don’t want to be so self sufficient that you forget the joy that having people around adds to your life, but you also don’t want to be too people dependent that you lose your space and self.
Yeah I know how that sounds but everyday I’m closer to attaining balance.
The way life is setup, finding your own joy is imperative to not only surviving but thriving. This is something I’ve had to learn the hard way.
Find your joy, seek it out. Be happy, be happy for you. Be happy because of you.
Some days are clearer, it seems so visible, like you can almost reach out and grab it. Other days it seems like it’s an illusion, like you are on a wild goose chase. But that is life, continue to seek it still.
You will find it and when you have found it, hold on to it. Because life is too short to let anything or anyone steal your joy.
