Goodness I love that quote. It struck a chord with me. But the bottom website needs to be changed. Well, at least in my opinion.
You see, I think it should be www.livelifejoyously.com instead of happy. Happiness is a feeling that is so fragile. It comes and goes like a wave of womanly hormones. Up one minute and down the next. Haha.
But JOY… Joy is an appreciation of life. It’s a feeling of blessed awareness. It’s seeing the day moment by moment and embracing it.
I will admit, for the past few years we have been chasing happiness. Grabbing on to a moment of it here or there and then feeling empty when it is gone. A glimpse of hope, a touch of healing, a moment of success. Yes, that happiness is fragile. We can feel happy about what is to come, but then that moment passes and we’re almost at a loss.
Like that euphoric feeling of crossing the finish line. Happiness. A feeling of accomplishment, strength, and determination all played out. Wow, pretty amazing. But that happiness fades like the sun and we’re left with that “what now?” feeling.
I’ve been there, I’ve done that (I still do that at times). But then I realized I wanted more. And I think God made it very aware that HE wanted me (us) to have more as well.
I heard HIM whispering… “Lindsay, stop worrying about the future, seek ME NOW. I will give you JOY!.”
Be thankful…. NOW
Don’t fear the future…
Don’t regret the past…
Chase JOY…Not Happiness
Don’t waste another moment… enJOY NOW!
No rhyme or reason to my post today. Just some Cotter Corniness Oozing out of me. Must be hormones. haha!
What are you chasing NOW?
Hoping to throw in a life/training update soon. Still waiting on test results and some other things to pan out. BUT… We’re focusing on the NOW! Right?
