Hello and happy Friday and last day of January! In case anyone does not know, the handsome Foxhound above is JoeJoe, best friend and therapy, or therapeutic, dog.
He brings me and many others great joy! Focusing daily on finding joy in life is a choice and a mental activity. Positivity over negativity, optimism over pessimism, a smile on your face over a frown. It actually can be that simple.
The point is that you make it your own. Define it, what does being joyful mean to you? What brings you joy? Who brings you joy? Instead of pushing your daily joy aside and back burnered, make it a priority to choose it by being in positive, healthy relationships, getting some daily exercise of any kind in, and keep mindful of the bountiful joy around you.
Last, be connected to others, both people and our loving pets. Happiness is a very good thing!
