Some days are harder than others. On those days, it's important to find and embrace joy wherever it might be hiding.
It's usually hiding right in front of you.
I watched our cat play in a paper bag until he was exhausted.
I listed the irrational dangers of guppies and ducks to my giggling daughter.
I drove home with the windows down, blasting Born to Run.
I watched a student dance riotously in a cafeteria without any music.
I listened to my five year-old son try to explain quasars to me.
I held my wife's hand while watching a movie on the couch.
I try to find joy in my everyday. Little things. Minuscule things. Then I write them down - every single day - so I never forget them.
Sometimes you can find joy in big things, too. Things like the Moon.
You should watch this video. It's pure joy.
