When you finally allow yourself to trust joy and embrace it, you will find you dance with everything. — Emanuel
This quote is here today because I had a recent peek at what someone’s life is like when even the most joyful experience is turned into something to be ruined and discarded.
If you do this to yourself and others, stop. As soon as you notice yourself experiencing joy — relish it! Embrace it! Capture a piece of it in a jar to be pulled out when joy is not readily available!
In the book, two of the verbs of Happiness are Remember (remember your joyful moments, don’t let them escape forever) and Reward (reward yourself and others for finding happiness). When you reject joy as it naturally comes to you, you destroy any chance at lasting, permanent happiness. Trust joy. Embrace it. Dance with everything.
