Joy and Twinkle Lights

This is a timely re-post for the Holidays. Whenever you see twinkle lights, let your joy in that moment come to life … and share it βœ¨πŸ™βœ¨

“Twinkle lights are the perfect metaphor for joy. 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 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.”

What a lovely reminder to find some twinkle today ✨

    It’s so easy to get caught up in a hectic whirlwind of activity at this time of the year, but I’m hoping you have plenty of time to ‘Smell the Roses’ and just live in the moment – enjoying the small simple things which make your day restful and relaxing πŸ™‚
