“Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.” ~Henri Nouwen
It’s so easy to get caught up in our duties, responsibilities, and the challenges that face us every day that we miss the opportunities to choose joy along the way.
By choosing joy—choosing to watch for it, to give it our attention, to embrace it when it arises—we make space for it to blossom in our lives. It’s a choice we need to make over and over again every day to keep it from being drown out in our worries and cares.
How are you choosing joy today?
