Because It's All About That Joy



Today I decided to give everyone the reasoning behind why I chose Joy Through Life as my blog name. I wanted this blog to be an uplifting score for all readers, and one thing that came to my mind was how we often focus on all the negative situations in our lives. 

There are so many moments of pure joy we miss out on because we are so consumed with the negativity that occurs in our everyday life. You see, joy isn’t just an emotion that is felt, or an experience waiting to happen, it is an action that you partake in. Joy can be given and found in day to day interactions if we just take the time to open our eyes. The reason why I chose “Joy Through Life” as my blog title is because so many times we miss valuable opportunities to simply experience joy. 

 I know within my own life, it can get so chaotic and overwhelming, I forget to see all the beauty surrounding me. Trust me, I know how hard it can be to experience joy when the dryer quits working, the kids will not stop fighting, or that nail decided to make your tire go flat as a pancake... I have the tendency to focus on the negative and rush through life without taking the time to actually enjoy it. So, this is what my blog is all about. Waking up every day no matter how bad the situations may be, or how crazy my schedule is and truly experiencing joy. 

For Example...





                                                   The smell of fresh coffee in the morning



                                                             Sweet hugs from this little cutie 


                                                                 Lazy afternoons with family 

                                                             
                              Putting on my make up while watching reruns of Arrow and Once Upon a Time


Beautiful fall days



                                                                    To puppy snuggles

These are just a few things within my own life that bring me joy. So I challenge you, Find some things that bring you Joy in your own life and soak them up. For all my Instagram users and Facebook junkies, take a few pictures of moments, people, or simply whatever brings you joy, then post them for everyone to enjoy. I hope you all have a blessed day!
