SWDesertHomes in Tucson, Marana, Oro Valley, Vail & More!: Making Every Day Better As It Goes

Making Every Day Better As It Goes

Making Every Day Better As It Goes


This has been a lovely week, and for some reason, with the start of my "leaping son" blog I refreshed on Facebook, to this sunny Saturday...a feeling of well-being and joy has been uppermost.  


It is interesting, that "Law of Attraction" thing  Long have I learned, and ever do I practice, to surround myself with positive, productive people.  I do my best to be one myself.  I think it works.  I know it works better than being a "sad sack".

I remember a wonderful sermon by a dear Pastor some years ago.  He talked about happiness and joy, and his interpretation and application of the two.  According to him, "Happiness" is largely based on what happens to you.  "Joy" is internal.  Because...we all know, bad things happen to good people.  To paraphrase: there are those in our sphere that whatever rainstorm comes their way, they are out splashing in bright shiny red boots making it joyful.  So, "rain" happens, but we can choose "joy".

I envy those who are, and I strive always to be...a joyful person.  I've found kindness and joy and positivity to be simply contagious.

Deeper into my thoughts this week came a song I've long loved.  It's a love song entitled, "How Do You Keep The Music Playing"  The song's last stanza goes,

"If we can try with every day to make it better as it grows
With any luck than I suppose
....The music never ends"

I think we should definitely try to make every day better as it goes.

Good evening  Cara. I love your attitude and this post. It always pays to be positive and it can be healing too.

Cara- i love what you have to say about happiness and joy.  I have always tried to be positive and to try to find any bit of happiness or joy in whatever happens.

Wonderful words to live by, and that is so 'you' Cara Marcelle Mancuso!!  At work you are always the "Yes, I can help!" person, and that alone, makes you stand out, a head above the rest of the room . . .  very nice!  I really love the definition of 'Happiness' and 'Joy'.

And I think you're absolutely right. Although - I think we can choose to be happy through a conscious effort to focus on the things we love and appreciate.
