Now if everyone in politics and every CEO in Big Business would read this, think how much people would quit hating their jobs, their bosses and their politicians!


From Denny:  Have you ever noticed that when you are filled with Joy that your whole world is suddenly harmonious and everything just falls into place?  Joy is contagious too.  When you feel good, everyone around you feels good too!

While not everyone is called to enter into the decades long rigorous training to become a mystic for the benefit of humanity, a lot can be learned and practiced in everyday life to better enjoy life's journey.  Practicing Joy is practicing healthy spirituality, regardless of religion or no specific religious preferences at all.

Joy is a central principle for the human spirit.  Joy sustains us through life's sorrows and disappointments.  Joy acts as a counter balance while climbing out of depression or grief, dealing with past trauma and the ensuing PTSD, keeping us from sinking down further into negative emotions and thoughts.  Joy is important to safeguard not just our mental, emotional and spiritual health but it has a direct positive benefit upon our physical health too.

Adults often develop habits that steer away from Joy.  Babies laugh hundreds of times a day.  How much have you laughed out loud today?  How much have you laughed in the past month?  Do you find your world crumbling around you, feeling out of sorts and grumpy, thinking limiting thoughts, focused upon how little is going your way? ...

Start practicing Joy today.  How do you practice Joy?  Start by appreciating the Beauty around you in your environment.  You might enjoy the scent of the fresh Spring wind, the gentle feel of a Summer breeze, the fluffy white of snow falling in Winter or the eye candy of leaves turning crimson in the Fall.  You might enjoy beautiful artwork, architecture, furniture design, sports statistics, an inspiring movie, a walk with your pet, a romp in the snow sledding down hill with your kids.

The all time crowd favorite is to lip sync to your favorite music and dance like no one is watching.  Well, that's just what this police officer did inside his police cruiser as he drove on his watch, providing security for the Dover, Delaware neighborhoods.  The cop lip synced to Taylor Swift's song, "Shake It Off."

How appropriate is that?  Police officers tolerate a lot of negative emotions from the public, and, being human, they too have to figure out how to get their Joy back up.  Well, singing inside their police cruiser is one remedy.  OK, this guy crushes it, and, even Taylor Swift tweeted how much she enjoyed it as much as the 28 million who viewed his performance on YouTube.

First the three great quotes on Joy and then on to the viral video.  Taylor Swift's official video for "Shake It Off" follows too.  Start practicing your Joy today and every day!
