Finding the small joys in life is not as easy as it sounds. We get caught up in our daily lives and sometimes miss the little things. We are always waiting for those milestone moments to give us happiness. Maybe it’s a promotion at work or a vacation we have planned for months. If we look hard, we will find joy in everyday living.
We find joy in the kindness of others. Maybe it’s from the support of our friends and family. It’s the kind words someone offers to you at work. It’s the smile and hello from a stranger. We in turn can also do the same. When is the last time you told someone how much you appreciate them? We assume people know how much we care about them, but that’s not always the case..
We find joy with the ones we love. A hug from my husband and how was your day. The words, I Love You, sometimes become a routine. Really think about the words you are saying and those being said to you. We are blessed everyday to have someone in our lives that fills our hearts with happiness. The joy of grandchildren, that fill our hearts with the purest love. Every time I hear my grandchild say they missed me or that I’m their best friend.
We find joy in the things we do, not just in the epic adventures we take. Small things like sitting outside with a good book, A beautifully prepared meal to share with friends and family. Listening to our favorite music and yes dancing around the house. Taking a long drive, music tuned up as loud as you want and yes rolling all the windows down.
What will you find, when you really start looking? What joys await you? Have you had them all along, but just got to busy to look.
