You might know that I’m quite a Brene Brown fan. I was reading The Gifts of Imperfection and made this image after reading the chapter on cultivating gratitude and joy. Brene wrote:
Joy is not a constant. It comes to us in moments–often ordinary moments. Sometimes we miss out on the bursts of joy because we’re too busy chasing down the extraordinary moments. Other times we’re so afraid of the dark that we don’t dare let ourselves enjoy the light.
A joyful life is not a floodlight of joy. That would eventually become unbearable.
I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude, inspiration, and faith.
