River of Joy

When you do things from your soul you feel a river moving in you, a joy.

– Rumi –

When I read this quote it reminded me of the ebb and flow of life.  Every individual experiences ups and downs, good days and bad days, emotional highs and lows.  There are people and obstacles in our lives that trigger or create stress, anger, hurt, sadness, and many other emotions.  It is during these times especially that we need to take a look within ourselves and search deep down for joy.  The joy that is within each one of us deep in our souls.  The joy that is rooted in the positive thoughts we have, the wonderful people we have to support us and uplift us when we are down, the gratitude we have for the blessings in our lives, large and small, our faith. The joy that enables us to dance when life is not going as we would prefer it to go.  Joy moves us as the water moves with the current.

I wish you joy.
