Joy comes from within

Finding inspiration in everyday life

Joy comes from within

 

Happy thought provoking Thursday. Our positive quote of the day states: “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself,” by Jim Rohn. Happiness and joy are not necessarily synonymous. Our happiness oftentimes depend upon our circumstances. If the stock market is thriving or if we’re excelling in our careers we’re happy. We are relying upon outside forces for our happiness. However, joy is more internal and not as likely to change with our circumstances. There is joy when we wake in the morning and see our partner next to us, when we see our children, or speak with a loved one. There is joy in pursuing our talents and realizing those skills are a gift from a loving God. There is abundant joy in knowing that because of Jesus, no matter the ebbs and flows of our happiness we can still find joy. #Beinspired #Joy #LuminousQuotes
