Coaching Corner: Joy: Make It Yours!!
By "Coach" Marilou Butcher Roth
The subject of joy has been coming up a lot for me lately--some feeling it, some seeking it and some with no idea what it even means! In which of those categories do you find yourself? Joy is something I believe we can easily take for granted. In my experience, most of the time we come upon the experience of joy by default. Something occurs that generates a lovely feeling--how wonderful! I certainly do not want to negate the experience. However, have you ever given any consideration to the idea of seeking out the feeling of joy? Most of us do not.
Yep--that is exactly where we are going today. Find your joy!!! Seek out the experiences, conversations, activities and even memories that get those joy juices flowing. When we are only experiencing joy by default, you may find that those moments become illusive.
We all deserve to experience the best of life...and if you are just going about your day, perhaps grumpy, complaining or blaming, your joy window is SHUT! Open it up. It’s spring and beautiful, let as much joy in as you can! Go and find it for yourself. And, the more your look for joy, the more you will begin to find joy! And dare I say it...Enjoy!!!
