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.

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

Have a joy-filled week!
