I now see this as an early way of setting a foundation of joy in my life. As I actively sought out, and said yes to the things that were coming from a place of love, I was also choosing joy. I was choosing joy and inviting it further into my life.
And this is what creating a foundation of joy is all about. It’s recognizing that you make a choice to seek out joy, and you make a choice to include joy in your life.
And why is this important?
Because setting up a foundation of joy is setting up a new kind of basis by which you can live your life.
When you’re choosing joy as a foundation, it helps build a solid base for your whole world and your whole reality. It started helping me see things in a new light. Because unlike a standard lens of judging things on being successful or a failure, joy has an application no matter your outcome. You could succeed in your goals and feel joy, but you can also fall short of a goal, and be able to find joy in your life despite the fact that you may not have met your outward facing goal.
