What is your definition of true joy??? What makes you feel happy??? To me, it’s spending time with my loved ones, having great conversations, laughing uncontrollably, & just enjoying the moment we’re in!!!
In today’s society, it is so easy to get sucked into all of the junk that they are always shoving in our faces. They seem to promote that the expensive cars, huge houses, and designer clothes will make your life “worth living”, that the bigger is better, you have to “Keep up with the Kardashians” to be happy. Don’t get me wrong, those are all wonderful things, but none of it really matters. In the grand scheme of life, material things don’t matter because they don’t last. Make memories with the ones you love, invest in giving & caring, invest in being a better person. Those are the things that matter, those are the things that bring true joy. Not only to yourself, but to others!!!
Something else to be mindful of; is the fact that people spend so much time trying to capture the moment that they forget to enjoy the moment. Now, with that being said, I am all for capturing those memories so they can be enjoyed later, but don’t forget to participate in the process of making them as well. Put the phone down, disconnect after you got your photos. Live in the moment. I promise that Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, & all of the other dozens of sites will be there a few hours from now. They aren’t going anywhere.
Basically what I’m trying to get across is that there is more to life than material things and social media. Even though those are the things that our society seems to focus on, they don’t really matter. Don’t live your life to impress other people with fancy things and status updates, live your life to be happy & fulfilled. Live your life and make it so beautiful that it’s all worth remembering in the end!!!
