Love Gives Joy

Written April 9, 2021:

Finding Joy
A life chasing pleasure without meaning is an aimless existence. Yet a meaningful life without joy is a depressing one.

Option B – Sheryl Sandberg

At 630am this morning, I thought my biggest achievement for the day is probably getting up and walking. I went through the plaza and I just had to take a selfie with the municipal hall as the background. I once told someone that as long as I have faith, hope and love, I will be fine. If this is true, then sometime this year, I have lost one, or two, or maybe even all three of them. I need to consciously make an effort to believe again.

On my way home, an epiphany hit me. How do I chanel all the negative energy I am feeling into doing something positive? I have had a few ideas, will sleep on them and maybe, just maybe, tomorrow, or the day after, my day’s accomplishments would include more than showering, eating, brushing my teeth, reading and trying to sleep relatively early.

Most of my adult life, I have lived an aimless existence, not really knowing who I am and why I am. I have started looking for the answers, and pretty soon I will find them, if it’s the last thing I do. But I have no desire to live a depressing life, now where do I find joy?

Update: where there is love, there is joy. I believe I am starting to believe again.
