This post was written in May, 2011 when I was having a difficult time Finding The Joy in my Life. Recently I have been trying to find the Joy in my life. It feels like it is hiding from me or that I need a secret code to discover the joy. Joy is elusive on a good day. String a few bad days together and Joy is impossible to find. So, I am on a mission. This is Mother's Day and it should be a joyous day. For some it will be the celebration that they had hoped for in their heart. For others it will be just another day of disappointment and failed expectations.
So what keeps me from finding my joy. The answer to that question is simple....Me. I keep me from finding the Joy that is waiting for me. I want to make a distinction from Joy and Pleasure. I think that Joy is something deeper than Pleasure. They do have some things in common. They can both be transitory. So what would my life look like if I could find the Joy in life.
