Creating Joy as Your Life Unfolds


This is about responsibility ... your responsibility ... in creating joy in the way your life unfolds.

No, I can't do that. My life is not unfolding to plan. My life is not good. I don't like my life. Under such circumstances how do you expect me to create joy in the way my life unfolds?

That is, however, precisely it. Most of our lives don't always unfold according to plan, or in the best way possible. Most of us get hit - sandbagged, you might say - in the most unexpected ways from the most unexpected quarters numerous times in our lives. That's the reason why we have to take charge about creating joy in the way our life unfolds.

If we do that, we begin to see joy appear in the most unexpected ways and in the most unexpected places. Once that happens, we are well on the road to experiencing joy in our lives at will, no matter what the circumstances.

How can we create joy? Begin with gratitude for the simple things in your life such as the beauty of nature. Be grateful for a child's infectious laugh (even if you only hear it from your neighbour's garden). Begin by practicing mindfulness (click on the label below for more about this), which also implies creating joy by being aware as often as possible throughout the course of your day. Part of this awareness is the acceptance of the fact that your joy is your own responsibility.

How can we create joy? How can we become responsible in creating joy in the way in which our life unfolds? By deciding to do so. and as you create this daily habit, new neural pathways are formed in your brain and it becomes - as I have said in other places - background music to the tapestry of your life. It's a choice. So simple. Start now.
