Contemplating Joy and Happiness

See that smile? It's a moment of Joy.

My wish for you is that you feel joy and happiness, that you feel at least feel a little bit everyday. Sometimes, it's hard to find joy or happiness. Sometimes it feels like the joy and happiness is hiding and you might not even have any idea where to look for it.  The consistent bleating daily grind can feel like it's beating you down (I know), but try to find the moments to stop and feel truly present.

Where do I find moments of joy?  Last night for instance, in a warm tiny room full of yoga students, getting to lead them through sun salutations, helping them get a little more in touch with their bodies.  Reminding them that there is joy in the moment, reminding them to smile.  That was my moment of joy yesterday.  Going home at lunch time and giving my dogs little scratches as the wagged their cute tails, that was my moment of joy.

Where do you find moments of joy?  Do they make your gratitude list?  Tell me about what brings you joy.
