Finding Joy is Like Mining for Gold

Finding Joy is like Mining for Gold
Looking for a bit more joy? I believe in small steps. Each day, we have a choice, a moment where our thoughts can lead us downward. The negative momentum can be like quicksand. The best way out is to reach for one small thought that feels just a bit better than where you are. Finding joy can be like mining for gold. It’s there, buried within the rock, hard sadness. It’s always there and it’s worth finding. For me, it’s about being right here, right now, in this very moment and in this moment, I know I am ok. Sometimes just being OK is enough. From there, that small lovely ray of light can be seen. That ray of light is called hope. With hope, you are on your way to joy. There are always nuggets of joy to be found, so keep “mining”, keep looking for it! When you find it, share it with those around you. They may be looking for a few nuggets themselves.

“The standard of success in life isn’t the things. It isn’t the money or the stuff — it is absolutely the amount of joy you feel”. ~Abraham
