“Joy is found with simple awareness. What does your joy look like today?”
I find it kinda funny that this is what I found in perusing the internet today. It has emotionally been a rough week. It all started last week, when I was feeling okay. I was doing yoga, like I do every morning, and got to the end and lost it in my shavasana. I cried. And cried, and cried. Since then I have felt down, more than down, negative. That feeling when even when you look for the good, it is hard to see. It scares me, having visited this place before. It isn’t fun. So I am determined to get out of Dodge as fast as possible. I am going to recognize joy.
Joy is an old friend who always knows exactly what I need to hear. She always gives me that right balance of compassion and kick in the pants.
Joy is my family who makes me laugh, even when I don’t really want to.
Joy is sunlight, and sprouting plants.
Last week, I told my husband that I was at the end of my rope, and his response with a grin was “That’s good. At the end of the rope, the only way out is up, because there isn’t enough left to hang yourself.” Oh joy.
