joie de vivre

The joy of living is a concept that is well within our grasp, if we dare to reach for it. Seriously. We don’t have to go on vacation or wait until retirement to appreciate the comfort and enjoyment that is possible by merely embracing each moment of life.

On the darkest, cloudiest day, when there appears no hope of sunshine and the air is bitterly cold, children still laugh and play, people hug each other, and there is something to look forward to, if only the next moment. To greet each day with anticipation, wondering instead of dreading what will happen next, takes practice. And some attitude adjustment.

Perhaps it takes less effort to be negative. You are never disappointed if you always expect the worst. But it can be a real downer for you and anyone within reach.

So, look around you and search for something good. You won’t have to look far, and you won’t be disappointed, either. Now look again, and keep looking. What a great way to spend a day. Joie to you!
