How do you find and celebrate the joy in your life?

Each day is a new chance to find joy and to dance. If you let it pass or think it useless, the chance is gone and you'll never get it back. When was the last time you played? Or just did something for the sheer fun of it? Joy is not found in the world around you, it's within yourself. You can make your own joy, especially during those dark times when you need to really feel alive again. Fun and play are healthy antidotes to taking life--and ourselves--too seriously. They're proven boosters of immune systems and mental health and make life worth the trouble. So do the twist. Sing in the shower. Learn a magic trick. Watch a cartoon. Challenge some kids to a game. Don't let a single day go to waste.

I find it and stay with it and when it gets dull I go to something else.

How do you I find joy in life: By suprising myself every day over and over, being crazy, just dance with people you dont know on the streets, just having fun on the simple things in life. Talk with new people as much as I can, find something to loose the boringness like this site which I just discovered about 1 hour ago :), Now I finally can share my thoughts in on the internet and this is an really active site;) .

I don't take anything for granted. I try to see the positive lessons in the mistakes that I make, and I enjoy, celebrate and appreciate all that goes well in the lives of myself and my husband.
