“It’s worth realigning our doing, to whatever degree we can, with our joy. Even better, find your joy in the act of being. And almost all doing can become joyful as a consequence.” — Neil Strauss
There is plenty to be unhappy about in the world. Circumstances aren’t always optimal for joy. But let’s be honest, life is rarely optimized for joy. We must focus on collecting the bits of it together and build our own joy nugget. This isn’t delusional, it’s purposeful living.
We all know people who find no joy in anything. We all know people who find joy in everything. Which do you suppose is the better way to go through life?
Be joyful. Enjoy being. Simple? No, but deliberate.
