Day 23, Joy, 30 Days of Creative Expression

Day 24 JoyToday I drew Lance Secretan’s Joy SPIRIT@WORK® CARD, again.

Mary Poppins told us that “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down” and in the same way joy is the spice that seasons life.  

My art journaling piece says, “Everyone dreams of flying, but only those joyfully given to the flight ever do.”

Joy isn’t merely arrived at by joyful circumstances, but rather by the way  we view the world. Some people view the world as a party and turn ever circumstance into an opportunity overflowing with joy. I am drawn to those types like a moth to a fire, because their joyful wind always fuels my flame.

It’s not always easy to feel joyful when life’s got you down, but we can never forget that joy comes from the inside out and not the other way around. A grateful heart is a joyful heart. There is always something to be grateful for; therefore, we need not look far for joy to erupt within our being.

How do you nurture joy in your heart and life?

Joy in insides

 

Do you ever feel like you are on a different track? Everyone else seems to be joyfully racing ahead while you’re in the midst of transition and feel like a deflated tire?

Once when I was in a particularly difficult season my son Gabriel encouraged me with a true story about a man that forfeited his treasure due to his own weariness. The man had been digging in hopes of finding valuable gold reported on his property.

Discovering no such treasure the man sold his land and lost his fortune. The new owner began digging where the previous owner stopped and struck gold!

Let’s be honest, there are times when life is intense. We can learn to change our perspective, move forward or be crushed under the weight of weariness. If discouragement is weighing you down here are 5 tips for joy in the midst of transition.

Screaming Under the Underpass

Kimberism: Every obstacle holds opportunity. Recently upon my morning walk I discovered a route that takes me under the most wonderful underpass. Normally I wouldn’t have considered this brief part of my trek scenically delightful and could have missing its value. However, I have discovered the most glorious part of my walk is when the traffic blazes through the underpass creating a thunderous noise. It is the perfect opportunity to scream, sing, or shriek at the top of my lungs! Then I continue my enthusiastic theme for the rest of the walk, whatever it may be. This combined with this season of artistic expression create the perfect vehicles to enjoy the scenery of life. What a delight it is to let all of my pent up emotion come howling out from the depth of my being. My beautiful jaunts, vivid with California vegetation, sunshine, and concrete overpass creates fodder for some of my best ideas, now enhanced with screeching at the top of my lungs under the underpass. What ways are you finding to scream under your own underpass? I would love to hear how you creatively let off steam and navigate through your own passage ways of life!

Choosing a New Reality

Kimberism: Perceived obstacles are matter of interpretation.  I took off for my morning walk feeling little energy or joy surrounding the task at hand. As I contemplated that reality something rose up in me and I began to command my body to agree with the choice I had made. I said, “You are strengthened in your inner man. You will be joyful” and suddenly without thought I began to sing about the reality I had chosen for myself. By the time I returned home to my doorstep I felt energized, joyful and full of gleeful expectation. Are you choosing the reality you want or letting your current situation dictate your reality? Begin today to choose your reality and then sing into it!
