Joy is in the heart and eye of the beholder. When joyful moments or people present themselves to you, it is necessary to recognize them. Often times, they go unrecognized and become discounted in your experiences.
Seeing and validating each joyful moment, whether it is as small as noticing the first beautiful blossom of spring or larger such as getting the promotion you’ve been waiting for at work, will allow each moment to be catalogued in your mind and heart as happy times.
Having the ability to fall back and remember these happy times is a must when you are also being presented with more challenging moments. Having the opportunity to pull up past joys at a moment’s notice is a tool for remembering that all difficult times are not everlasting. Difficulties will come and go, but the sheer joy of beauty, love and abundance may become etched in your memories forever. It becomes your choice to commit to your history that which is joyful or that which has created much angst.
It is always your quest and journey in this lifetime to see and feel each and every joyful moment for it is then a clear memory of your time spent with spirit before you arrived in this lifetime. The choice is yours to make.
What is one joyful moment from your past that has been etched for a lifetime?
