Finding Joy

“Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.” – Emily Dickinson

Over the past few weeks I have had discussions with friends about not being happy with different situations in life. It has been difficult for me personally because I see others dreams come true and though I am so happy for them it makes me feel sad. I have dreams too. Why are my dreams not coming together?  And then last night while talking with a good friend, she said to find joy in the little things. 

I guess I had forgotten about the small things that make me so happy. I love cooking and baking, I love playing games, I love dancing and I love quality time with friends and family. I should be more thankful and more joyful about being able to do those things. So my goal is to find at least one small thing everyday that brings joy to my life. 

Today, I found joy in getting a restful nights sleep. Praise God for good sleep and a great start to my week.
