    What brings you joy?

    From Merriam Webster:

    Definition of JOY
    1 a : the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires : delight

    b : the expression or exhibition of such emotion : gaiety

    2 : a state of happiness or felicity : bliss

    3: a source or cause of delight

    So, what brings you joy?

    For me it's my work, both at the clinic and the court. Both aspects of my job, bring me great satisfaction.

    Also, my grandchildren. From the oldest who will be 13 in December to the youngest who is 8 months (I have 5 grandchildren) they are all awesome kids!

    My marriage of 35 years and counting. The ups, the downs, and all the phazes in between, its been a great journey with a great partner.

    My hobbies, they give me peace when life it chaotic and a great feeling of satisfaction to share the by products from them and to teach others the joy of doing them. Whether it's knitting, weaving, sewing, metal work or bead work, they bring me joy.

    So, what about you?

    Gosh darn you Yawn, everyone tells us money does not bring us Joy.

    Yep I have to agree, seeing that green brings a lot of joy to me too.

    I'm happy to have the money.....but usually disappointed by what I buy with it....

    But never learn to just hold onto the money! :spin2:

    If I had a million, I'd definitely figure out a way to invest the greater portion and make it go to work for me....then enjoy the fruits of that on a smaller scale.

    After giving some thought to the word joy and it's meaning I'm really not sure what I would categorize
    as bringing me joy.
    Pleasure, Enjoyment, Delight, Joy refer to the feeling of being pleased and happy. Pleasure is the general term. Enjoyment is a quiet sense of well-being and pleasurable satisfaction [like contentment]. Delight is a high degree of pleasure, usually leading to active expression of it. Joy is a feeling of delight so deep and so lasting that one radiates happiness and expresses it spontaneously.

    I'm thinking by the definition I just posted it would be the things very very dear to me that bring me joy. My husband, daughter and them being content and happy bring me joy.

    This is something to give some thought to.

    I agree. Money doesn't really cover it...

    Must look deeper.

    You got that right brother.

    Having money is like having a bottle of Female Viagra .......

    It is the perfect aphrodisiac.

    It works every time I have used it.

    This reminds me that I spend too much time working, not enough with the things I enjoy. Don't get me wrong, I love my job, I work toward more balance in my life.

    I'm a beginner at crochet and knitting. I appreciate the beauty of others' work. When I'm in the crafts store, my eyes are always drawn to the yarns, beads and books on beadwork.

    I love to get into a good book. To be able to settle into a comfy chair and read on a quiet day is one of my favorite things.

    So many things out there to experience and enjoy, so little free time!
