joy – from brene brown

I found this inspiring quote over on Ordinary Courage, a blog by psychologist/author Brene Brown.  I think it fits in well with my recent post on believing in good things to come:

I think the beauty of twinkle lights is a perfect metaphor for joy.

Joy is not a constant.  It comes to us in moments – often ordinary moments.  Sometimes we miss out on the bursts of joy because we’re too busy chasing down the extraordinary moments.  Other times we’re so afraid of the dark that we don’t dare let ourselves enjoy the light.

A joyful life is not a floodlight of joy.  That would eventually become unbearable.

I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude, and inspiration.

– Brene Brown

Isn’t that lovely?
