Joyfulness is an inner sense of peace and happiness. You appreciate the gifts each day brings. Without joyfulness, when the fun stops, our happiness stops. Joy can carry us through the hard times even when we are feeling sad. Joy gives us wings.
You are practicing joyfulness when you:
– Look inside for happiness,
– Enjoy whatever you are doing,
– Feel good about doing what is right,
– Find creative ways to enjoy your time,
– Have a good sense of humor, and
– Feel an inner peace even when things are tough.
I am thankful for the joy I feel inside. I enjoy my work and my play. I appreciate the gifts this day holds for me.
The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.
One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.
The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
