Are You Joy Watching?

Amid turbulence and uncertainty, from the lingering effects of the pandemic to global strife and tension, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Yet, amid these challenges, there are still moments of joy waiting to be noticed and embraced. Joy makes life worth living. By actively seeking out and acknowledging these moments, we not only lift our spirits but also create ripple effects of positivity that can support others in navigating their journeys.

Much like birdwatching, where setting our intention helps us spot elusive creatures, intentionally seeking joy allows us to recognize and appreciate its presence in our lives. Despite its fleeting nature, joy serves as a messenger, offering glimpses of what truly matters to us and guiding us toward fulfillment and purpose. When we consciously try to notice, savor, and nurture these moments, we cultivate a more profound sense of integration within ourselves and the world around us.

Personally, I’ve found joy in simple interactions, like sharing a smile with a neighbor or completing a project that brings a sense of accomplishment. Even taking a walk can be a reminder of the gift of health and strength. And through practicing gratitude, we amplify the vibrancy and meaning of these moments, deepening our connection to the joy they bring.

I invite you to join me in this practice of joy-watching. Take a moment today to experiment with noticing the small moments of joy that arise in your life. What do they reveal about what you value and cherish?

I would love to hear about your experiences and how embracing joy enriches your journey.
