Doing What Gives You Joy

It would be a blessing for everyone if they are able to do what gives them joy. To have your heart sing every day because you are able to do what is right within your soul. The difficulty is not only allowing yourself the freedom to what is clearly what you would like to do, but finding exactly what gives you joy. For some, this may mean a career, but not necessarily so. Joy is found within who you are. It is a feeling that stays with you throughout the day because you are content with what you are doing and the person you have become. When you find joy within yourself, it doesn't matter what you do in life for it remains close to your heart. Think about all the things that make you smile and brings laughter to your spirit and you will have found your joy. Today, give yourself a break. Leave the chaos of life behind and find peace in your day. For it is in quietness that you will find your joy. Don't look too hard, for it will come to you. You deserve to be joyful in life.
Things that are made with love bring the most joy...
(These musubis (rice balls) may not be perfect, but they gave me joy because my daughter made them with love. She and I had a picnic on the beach and made dinner to bring with us. It was the most mismatched food, but we had a great time because we spent time together. If you think about it, there is so much joy in our lives, we just have to remind ourselves that it's sometimes the simple things that bring us the most happiness.)
