Each day a new Beginning

If people only knew the healing power of laughter and joy, many of our fine doctors would be out of business.  Joy is one of nature’s greatest medicines. Joy is always healthy. A pleasant state of mind tends to bring abnormal conditions back to normal.  —Catherine Ponder—
Feeling joy may not come naturally to us most of the time. We may,
in fact, have to act “as if” with great effort. We may not even recognize genuine joy in the beginning. A technique for finding it is living fully in the present and with gratitude for all we can see, touch, and feel. The open and honest expression of gratitude for the presence of the ones closest to us now creates a rush within our breasts,

a rush that will be shared by our friends, too. Joy is contagious. Joy is freeing. Joy brings into focus our distorted perceptions. Greeting life with joy alters every experience for us and for those we share it with. I will bring joy wherever I go today. I will give the gift of joy to everyone I meet.
