I remember the church song, I got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, where? Down in my heart. Down in my heart to stay.
As we got older, many of us have lost that joy. The struggles of the world have affected us and we have lost that joy. We are consumed with time; getting to work, picking up the kids, catching our train, making the appointment. We are constantly on the go and even when we are stationary our mind is on the go thinking about what obligations we have.
Ask yourself the following questions:
“How often do I stop and reflect on the good things going on in my life?”
“How often do I daydream about the things that currently make me happy in my life?”
“When I speak to others do I complain about my life or do I state what makes me happy and what I am thankful for?”
Reflecting on your answers from the above questions:
Being aware is the first step to change. If you do not realize something is not how you want it, then how can you change it? The answer is simple you cannot!
The desire to change is the next step. Once you are aware of an issue, for lack of a better word, then you must reflect “I do not like this part of me or my lifestyle, but does it bother me enough to change?”
No, it doesn’t bother you, then suck it up and stop complaining about it. You just told yourself you were content with the way things are going.
Yes, it does bother you, the next step is to determine what action you will perform to change it. How do you eliminate this thing from your life?

Joy is contagious. When someone smiles at you you smile back, it’s almost automatic. That is joy. It’s in all of us, deep in our hearts. For some of us it is buried under years and years of negativity, that makes it hard to see it or even recognize the feeling of joy when it does happen.
