Let Joy
By Ralph S. Marston, Jr.

Somewhere in this very moment there is joy.
Choose to let it touch you.
You do not have to arrange for joy to appear, or coax it out of life.
All you have to do is allow it, and jo will be.
Joy does not need a special circumstance or elaborate condition.
It only needs for you to let it arise.
In the tiny, unremarkable moments, joy is always read and waiting.
In the magnificent , dramatic times it is there as well.
Joy will be if you will let it.
Think back, and you'll see how often you've know this to be true.
Relax your defenses, openand expose your most authentic self to life.
Joy will surely reach and fill you.

Great article Fran. We tend to forget that we only have to allow ourselves to feel joy. There's no secret. It's how it works :)

Thanks Val! :o) Being happy or otherwise depends on which way we choose: the positive way or the opposite.
