"Remember Joy and Find Hope"
Joy brings hope and hope
brings joy. Imagine joy
as a memory dwelling within you - a bird perched on
your soul singing a song of hope.
Let yourself know it is always there. Sometimes
we lose contact with that voice and feel despair. In
those times, if we can remember that the potential
for joy lives within us, we may regain hope and find
the strength to take steps to improve our lives.
If you feel
down, blue, depressed, or tend to be
hard on yourself, take time to remember the good
things you have done for yourself, the tasks you have
accomplished, the ways you have survived.
Remember times when you experienced content-
ment or joy. Then hold these images in your heart
and tell yourself you can re-create them. You have
the power to create happiness in your life - the
potential for joy is within you. You might ask yourself
what in your life right now blocks you from feeling joy,
and consider what you need to do to get on a path
toward greater happiness.
The bird of
joy that "perches in the soul" never
stops singing - we just stop listening. When we can
hear the promise of joy within us, we have more
power to come alive to our desire for life.
Joy is a
source of personal power. Joy awakens
as we open ourselves to the wonder of the universe
both inside us and around us. As we allow the
expansive power of joy to flow through us, a world
of love, creativity, and wisdom opens to us.
