Finding Joy and Leading Well

“You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted.”- Ruth E. Renkl

I read this quote and could not resist writing about it. I is such a strong message to hold onto, especially in our world today.

We can be unhappy, but when you allow your unhappiness to ruin your day or influence your relationships, then your time is officially wasted.

Don’t fake being happy, but truly seek out ways to find joy.

Think of the laughter of children, sunshine, waves at the ocean, a vacation memory, etc. Basically anything that will bring you back to a happy feeling. Being active might even be a way to jumpstart your joy.

May we find a better use of our time. May we be able to find joy in our lives, even the little things, and focus on them in order to avoid unhappiness infiltrating our hearts and destroying our spirit.

Peace and blessings friends.

QUESTION: What are the little things that bring you joy?
