A puppy always has a way of giving anyone a bunch of JOY. There are programs that make a profit from or volunteer their dogs to work with wounded soldiers and kids in hospitals because they bring on the JOY!
Visiting with a compassionate friend can give someone a ton of needed JOY. But why? Is it because they soothe our soul, listen to us without criticism, and give us unconditional love? We say all of the above.
Singing Karaoke gives many unlimited JOY. Imagine taking the opportunity to go on stage and singing your heart out? For many- it is an opportunity they just can't pass up! They love the opportunity to entertain themselves and possibly others without feeling like they have to try and be Elvis. They are filled with JOY.
For many, running miles after miles gives them bountiful JOY. It gives them a sense of ecstasy and a rush of Life!
Where does JOY originate from? If you said, "Your mind of course!" , then you would be right! There are many stories of POW's who used their mind to think about what gave them JOY while in captivity in order to help them survive. Can you do the same? Absolutely!
You can do the same thing when faced with a heavy problem or challenge. Search deep inside for those moments that made your soul dance, your heart pitter patter, and your dreams seem real. This will help you stay in a state of meditation, helping you to focus on preserving yourself for more challenging issues that may come your way. JOY is the eternal fuel that no one else but you can control at any time. It is you that has the power within to live your life based on what your JOY can give you.
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
