What is joy? Well this is what the dictionary defines it as.
"Joy: a feeling of great pleasure and happiness."
Yes joy is definitely a feeling but it is much more than that. It is a way of living and of being. Joy is very much a feeling, that is different for each and everyone of us. I know myself that I probably don't allow myself time to really feel joy, always busying myself with tasks, work, cleaning etc, just trying to get things done. But something I learnt recently is the simple fact is there is real joy in just completing these so called tasks with joy, by being present while doing them. Sounds strange? But it is so true.
I also get bogged down with being to serious and not allowing myself the space to just breathe and be impulsed to just be a big kid sometimes. If I want to sit and play my drum, dance around the lounge room, mess around with my paints for no reason at all but to simply allow more play time then you know what, the dishes can wait. There I said it!
So today I claim leaving the so called tasks behind and reclaim back your joy!!
Even if its just a little time here and there make it YOUR time.
Now I pose a question to you what brings you joy?
