Express Joy!

large tulip symbolizes expressing joy and the renewable nature of joy

Springtime is perfect for inviting us to express joy! Just think of the beautiful warm colors in this tulip bloom for perking us up after a long winter. Just as spring is renewing the cycle of life, so is joy renewing. In fact, let’s think of joy as a renewable resource!

  • Spring’s greatest joy beyond a doubt is when it brings the children out. Edgar Guest
  • Joy can be found in the simplest things: watching a robin build her nest, receiving a dandelion bouquet from a child, taking a walk on a summer’s eve, or feasting on a home cooked meal. Anne Costa
  • A flower blossoms for its own joy. Oscar Wilde
  • You have to sniff out joy. Keep your nose to the joy trail. Buffy Saint-Marie

Spread Joy!

In order to spread joy, we need to share it with others. This helps to renew joy, not only with ourselves, but with the world as well.

  • Spread joy. Chase your wildest dreams. Patch Adams
  • To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with. Mark Twain
  • Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joy, and dividing our grief. Joseph Addison
  • The simple presence of a pet can offer lightness and a joy, a sense of connection, and an invitation to be uninhibitedly ourselves in a way that is both unique and priceless. David Michie

Feel Joy When You Express It!

  • When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. Rumi
  • Joy is the feeling of grinning inside. Melba Colgrove
  • She found joy and wonder in every little thing. And joy and wonder always found her. Katrina Mayer
  • Joy is to fun what the deep sea is to a puddle. It’s a feeling inside that can hardly be contained. Terry Pratchett

May you express joy, spread joy and feel joy! If you’d like a little more encouragement to bring on the joy, check out Speaks with Sunshine. It is in the sharing of this precious renewable resource of joy that we plant these seeds!
