"Bundle of JOY"

"Journey Of YOU"!!! Cindy Lake
What is the true definition of Joy?
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines joy as, "feeling of great pleasure, happiness and understanding.
The moment we made our appearance here on earth there has been Joy!  "Bundle of Joy", our birth, brought happiness, love and great pleasure to our parents and throughout our life to many others. Our journey to this point may have masked or perhaps hidden the qualities of expressing or even feeling joy and love in life or perhaps the joy in ourselves!
Joy and Love are so often blended together that there seems to be no separation of these two emotions. The past several years it is real clear to me that Joy and Love are two totally different experiences.
Time for me now to explain my definition based on my experiences and what these two emotions mean to me. This may shed some light in supporting your journey to JOY
Joy is Unconditional
Love/Happiness is Conditional (can evolve with change)
Look in the mirror, the reflection of you, is a reflection of pure JOY and LOVE. 

Each of us is our own pillar filled with strength, love, courage, grace and joy. The reflection looking back is a reminder to really see you! Remember the occupation and material stuff is not who you are rather a byproduct of all your efforts. These are conditional and can change at any given moment.
The key is to maintain love and happiness in times when external change rocks our world.

How to do that? Accept self! Accept and acknowledge the person standing in front of that mirror. Accept your likes, dislikes, little quirks, habits, beliefs and everything that makes you -you! Acknowledge that you are a gift of love with brilliant bright energy to live life with Joy.
Yes, there may need to be some healing or alignments that need to take place, but the first step is in feeling pure unconditional joy for self! Allow for those tears of joy to trickle down!
Despite our ages, we are all still "Bundles of Joy"! Time to shed the shields and be wrapped in swaddling warm joy!

Next step when walking away from the mirror?

Shift perspective in everything seen, experienced and in every situation.
Navigate each and every minute of the day from a place of strength and appreciation.
Each day enjoy you for you knowing that you are pure joy
Sometimes it is the smallest of things that bring us joy like how I started my morning.
This morning I felt pure joy as I sat on my back patio drinking my morning coffee. My attention was drawn to the bird feeder and bath. There were six birds, flying back and forth from feeder to bath to fence. Listening to the sound of birds chirping and watching these birds enjoy their morning too.
Relaxing, Soothing, Calm and Peaceful were all that I experienced during this time. The overall emotion was JOY. Why joy? There were no conditions, nature was doing it's thing, I was doing mine.
When feeling joyful those conditional emotions are much more in your control!
