Simple Joy in Life
Life indeed has many obstacles that makes it hard to find simple pleasures in life. There are a lot of difficulties to surmount in this world. Some are big issues which are hard to manage, while some are very light but still we see them as troublesome.
It starts when you wake up in the morning. It is not comfortable to get up too early, right? But instead of giving thanks that we get another day to live, we find it as the first challenge to handle in the morning. How about preparing your breakfast? You might think that it would take lots of time to do it, and that same thing would cause you to stress then. So you have decided to just grab a cup of coffee and go to work. While going to work, here comes traffic! Well, it is something that is not very surprising. Upon arriving in the office, you find a lot of paperwork to do. After that, you are now confused about where to start first. Not to mention the colleague who won’t even throw you a line when you are in need.
After a day of work, you will be very excited to come home. Haven! But is it for real? On the other hand, some people are facing difficulties of many kinds like problems in a relationship, finances, and even misbehaving children. Well, welcome to the club! You are not alone. These are some of the minor issues we are facing up to the most complicated ones. Most often than not, some people claim that they are fine. However, as they go to their rooms, there they could hear themselves weeping.
You don’t feel that your body gets tired, but your soul is, and that makes you weak. It is alright to cry and then wipe your tears after. It is alright to move to your bed and find comfort in it, then get up. Sometimes, it is okay to eat the dish you fond the most, go to a coffee shop, and drink the best latte macchiato in town. Get your most astounding dress, wear it, and treat yourself for a movie. The feeling of emptiness always takes its toll. We have no control about it as it happens no matter how successful a person is. You might say, I have done all the ways to find joy. I have traveled almost everywhere in the world but I still feel empty. Well, maybe you missed doing the simple things first. That is to say, starting with the means you have at hand. For example, having a good sleep, listening to music, watching the sunrise, or diving into an activity which you always hope to do but can’t find a chance are some of the things that you can start kicking off.
Most importantly, spending a quiet time with God would be the best way to find joy. Make it a part of your life as praying without ceasing brings the greatest joy.
Not all of us have everything. But all can have joy if you let it grow in your heart. In this blog, we are going to explore the ways to find simple joy in life.
James 1:2-3 ” Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.”
