"THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, BUT THERE IS THE DISCOVERY OF JOY". joyce grenfell. Searching for happiness can be a life long process, one that keeps the self so busy that happiness can be overlooked in the search. I've spent many a wasted moment thinking that the feelings had to be huge and over powering to be worth something. It was when I quit the busy crazy search for the perfect something I discovered a well of goodness in my life I had never known before. I realized I had discovered joy, that feeling of delight a source of pleasure. These past weeks I've lived without my joy but rediscovered it on my morning hike. I was awake and alert to my surroundings. I noticed with keen pleasure the sun on my arms, the birds sweet songs, the fresh scent of pine, the babble of the brooks. It was little things but I was aware of them and I knew my joy was back for a moment and that my life was good.
