Quotes to Start Your Week with Joy




Here are a few quotes that I thought could help you to be joyful now, not at some nebulous time in the future.  Now is all we have so let’s fill it with moments of joy!


Watch the sunrise at least once a year, put a lot of marshmallows in your hot chocolate, lie on your back and look at the stars, never buy a coffee table you can’t put your feet on, never pass up a chance to jump on a trampoline, don’t overlook life’s small joys while searching for the big ones.  ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


I’m beginning to recognize that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead, but something small, numerous and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row.  ~Beau Christopher Taplin


The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives.  ~Russell M. Nelson


Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.  ~Joseph Campbell


Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.   ~Henri Nouwen


Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.   ~Helen Keller


Perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall. It’s the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events. Joy comes in sips, not gulps.   ~Sharon Draper


Have a joy-filled week!

  1. Thanks so much for your comment, Julie!

    I’m glad the poem helped you!

    I enjoy Edgar Guest’s poetry. Although he may not be considered as talented as Longfellow, Emily Dickinson, or Robert Frost, his poems are infused with common every day wisdom that is as relevant today as it was back in the early 20th Century when he was writing.

    Thank you again for your comment, Julie!

    Your Friend and Pep Pal,
