Excellent day to all the members of the beautiful community of @Holos-Lotus 💮. I haven't posted here for a few days because the mood to write was lost in me 🤭.
Today I come back here and join you, although I do not know if I'm on time, I do it anyway with the intention of participating in the initiative proposed by @mariannalis, which I found very nice and in which I take the opportunity to wish you a Happy Birthday 🥳(even if it's late 🤦🏻♀️).
This time, she invites us to talk about The Joy of Living and although this initiative already has three (3) questions to answer, I ask myself another one: Do we even know what the joy of living is?
Well, I don't think so! Actually, it's not that we don't know it, it's just that we let joy pass us by looking for it somewhere else where it may not exist. Because that's how we human beings are, we always look where it is not until we realize things.
I don't think any of us have a clear concept about what is the Joy of Living, however, I think we can try to explain it 🤭. For my part, I think it is based more on how we feel and deal with each situation in our life, it is about the mental capacity we have to face life in the best way, accepting what we can't change and changing in the best way what we can.
We must keep in mind that joy are ephemeral moments, it is not something that we will find and we can save and use every time we need it, that is why to enjoy it we must enjoy each of the moments that life gives us and treasure them in order to feel the joy of living 🌈.
To experience it, we don't have to go very far. I can find it in me day by day, when I wake up and see the beginning of a new day of life, in which I am healthy, all my senses in full function, my family and friends, with the simple fact of being alive. I find it and experience it fully in those moments when my daughter smiles at me and tells me that she loves me, in those little moments shared with my family, in a simple conversation with a friend with whom I had no contact for a long time. It is in the little things that we sometimes take for granted that we can best experience the joy of life.
As I have already mentioned, the simplicity of certain things is what makes me feel joyful. To know how to value certain moments in life, to go through situations that upset us and that everything makes sense again. That someone values me, loves me, gives me importance at least for a few moments, also gives me joy. But above all to enjoy the moments, nothing gives me more pleasure and happiness than this, of course there are times when joy seems to be far away, but it is enough to change the perspective a little or leave behind the negative for it to arrive.
I think it is also important to mention that we must differentiate between the fact of being alive and the fact of living. Because we are all alive but not all of us are living because unfortunately there are people who are bedridden, alive but not living, people who are consumed by depression and are alive but are letting life go by without living and so many more examples. That is why we must live in order to experience what is The Joy of Living☺️❤️.
See you in a future post, friends. A strong hug full of life and joy 🤗.
