What Gives You Joy?

Posted by admin on July 15, 2013

What gives you joy?  This may sound like a basic question and it really is quite a simple one.  The answers though are where the profound wealth is discovered.  What does give you joy?  When are you joyful?  If you were to create a day filled with joyful experiences, what would you be doing? 

The second question may be even more revealing for you:  How often do you experience joy?  We have each set goals at some point in our lives to achieve something we desire.  What if you were to set a goal to experience more joy?  What would you be doing if you were experiencing more joy?

I must say just writing this blog brings me joy!  The idea that someone’s life could change for the better is what motivates me to write.  I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love and for that work to have positive influence on others.  If I were to design a day of joy-filled experiences, sharing information and insights with you would be towards the top of my list.

Recently I’ve been reading the book, Flow, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (please don’t ask me how its pronounced).  One of the insights I’ve gathered from reading this incredible book, is how we often focus on what we think will bring happiness (e.g., a new car, a vacation, a piece of jewelry) and yet what truly brings happiness and creates “flow” is the impact we have on those around us.  When people are experiencing flow in their relationships with others, they are not thinking about time, other tasks, or really anything else.  They are enjoying the moment to its fullest.  It is in these moments of flow, when we experience joy.

What gives you joy?  Make a list of the things that are the most joy-filled activities for you.  Choose something from that list every day.  Do something you LOVE and something that brings you JOY every day.  What would life be like if you did that?  Let me know!  I’d love to hear from you!
