Grasping Joy

“Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.”
Carl Sandburg

In January we spent a lot of time talking about joy.  Why?  Because the quality of joy is missing from many lives and a new year is the perfect time to learn what role joy plays in your life. This month we’ll talk about love, both in line with Valentine’s Day and with learning to love ourselves.

What I love about this quote by Sandburg is that it’s exactly the attitude we should all have towards life: life is full of opportunities just waiting for us to grab them.

My question for you today is why don’t you grab those opportunities? 

There are many things that can hold you back from grasping the fullness of joy, love and life that is available to you.  The good news is that you can have what you want in your life. You just have to be willing to reach out there and get it.

This year I’ve changed my theme from “Sharing Hope in 2011” to “Hope in Action”.  Why?  Because I believe that not only is hope essential for getting us through the situations we’re in, but we all need to do our part to make the necessary changes.

What are you wanting in life?  If it just seems out of your grasp, I’d love to talk with you about how you can get there.

What in your life brings you joy?
