Living with Joy. Hey everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing my thoughts on Living with Joy. I think we can all agree that living with joy can sometimes be a challenge. When things appear to be going against our will, we tend to experience this as pain, suffering, or that we’re having a bad day. Recognising that we control our feelings and choose to live in joy or fear is the first step to creating a life full of joy and positivity.
Living with Joy
We all need to acquire one principle: seeing all situations, people, and events from a positive perspective. Instead of viewing bad things in life as a prompt to get upset and angry, try to view the “bad things” as lessons that are helping you grow, allowing you to become as a whole of an individual as possible. We often think that the outer world, the physical reality, is creating our day, causing us to be sad or unhappy; however, it is the opposite. We start our day, and we make the circumstances for joyous living.
The most important lesson is that “beingness” precedes experiences. To be happy, we first need to “be happy” inside. This internal happiness radiates outward through every cell of our bodies and creates the outer experience of a smile, or a laugh, or an intimate connection between two people. In this “beingness”, we can see and choose our feelings, desires, goals, and dreams, enabling us to manifest an outer reality based on our true selves.
We create the reality in which we experience joy, anger, love, and fear. Because we have the ability, the free will, to choose our existence, we can make that conscious choice to try to be happier, more grateful, and more sensitive. This happiness, though, will never come if you are looking outside of yourself first. We just learned that to be happy, we have to have the internal feeling of happiness to create that happiness in our daily lives. Remember that your beliefs about reality create your experience of it.
So, start changing your negatives into positives, gain clarity, and open your heart by looking inside yourself. When we start changing ourselves from the inside out, the universe will respond to us in ways we could never imagine. The ability to start manifesting your goals and dreams is already inside of you. Leap to begin living in joy today.
I hope you enjoyed that.
finding the happiness in the little things everyday helps when things look bleak

I agree with you that the decision to live joyfully rests solely on us. However, it can be a lot more complex these days because of so many negative things happening around us.
Oh wow! Such a great blog to read! The topic is really good and it gives us inspiration. Thanks for sharing this!
The post is incredible and insiring. Ihave shared it with my family!
I am sharing this with several people I know! Thank you, this is great!
Joy is my word of the year. Always looking for little moments of joy each day!
I love the encouragement from this post! Positivity is everything!
I agree positivity can greatly increase the positive life you live in.
There are so many reasons to see the joy in our everyday life.

I think it’s unrealistic to be happy all the time, but I do have a gratitude journal that I have been writing to remind me there is still some good in a bad day.
This was beautifully written, it made for a sweet morning read thank you for writing this.
I have to deal with a lot of pain issues every day, but I still am a positive person, always have been 🙂
So true. The more we practice finding the good, the less the bad will even have a chance at destroying our mood/day/relationships/life. My mother always says “I don’t own that.” or “Get back devil.” A mantra reminding you that the negative is present but you refuse to accept it, is not a bad way to start stopping it in its tracks.
Thanks for sharing this. Even in the negative and craziness right now, there is joy to find.

It’s so hard these days coz there are too many deaths left and right but I do my best to focus on the good and live life with joy.
It is very important to live your life with joy most of the time, because you only have one life, so it’s good if see the bright side of things most of the time!
I’ve been really struggling because I haven’t been sleeping. This post was needed, thank you.
It serves as a reminder to everyone that in order for us to be happy we need to be real happy inside and we need to throw away all the negativity in life.
It is great to try and find joy in daily life, the sun, the blue sky, nature and good company all bring my joy. I love this piece.
This was exactly what I need to hear! Thank you!
I totally agree. We need to be happy inside first! But, we also need to take into consideration that there are external forces. Trauma. Other not so positive forces at hand. We can’t simply ignore them. We need to work through it.
Love this! The message at our church this past weekend was about joy! My favorite topic!
Such a great reminder to have a positive perspective and to choose joy.
