Before you start reading into this too much, it is not referring to THAT kind of bundle of joy. I’m talking about people that are a walking bundle of joy. Do you know the kind of person I’m referring to? The kind of person that is so full of life and joy that it radiates from them. In 2019, I’m going to continue to focus on surrounding myself with these beautiful individuals.
“Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home. It’s your responsibility to love it, or change it.”Chuck Palahniuk, Awaken The Greatness Within
Joy is something we all need to experience more of; life moments that bring a smile to our face and warmth to our hearts. It doesn’t have to be something drastic either. It can be something as simple as lunch together or being silent in each other’s presence. Being around a bundle of joy should not have to be lavish or expensive; one just has to listen for it to be felt.
My Bundles Of Joy
I can’t even begin to explain the biggest bundles of joy in my life. These people inspire me, guide me, encourage me, and we share such incredible moments together. Conversation flows and before you know it, five inspiring hours have passed. We talk about the good and the bad, we navigate our paths with guidance from each other, and I walk away thinking about what a joy that interaction has been.
“The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.”Charles Dickens, Nicholas Nickleby
Too often we face forced conversation with others. At work, we are sometimes stuck in a meeting with those we do not want to converse with. Other times, we are in relationships that just don’t click, and for whatever reason, the conversation just cannot flow. Those moments are what make our bundle of joys even more important in our lives.
Take a moment to think about the bundles of joy in your life…
Can you name them? Are they your best friends, your coworkers, or your partners? Do you feel good when you walk away and that you life feels a bit brighter? If you don’t have a bundle of joy in your life, I encourage you to get out there and keep looking. The best joy can come from the most unusual of places. To all of my bundles of joy – thank you. Thank you for being there. May your 2019 be as amazing as you are.
