In the Autumn 2021 edition of Connected. There is an article by Bishop Emma Ineson entitled ‘Finding Joy in Whatever Life Holds’. A truly beautiful article, all about the Joy that we can find in the bible and the Christian Faith and how we can pass that joy into other people.
The bishop’s article has inspired me to write something about the joy of happiness: So here we go:
Happy days: Do you think about the happy days you have spent in the past? Can you remember when you last laughed uncontrollably? Do you look forward to being happy again? Or are you reasonably happy most of the time? If you don’t feel very happy at the moment or indeed, if you have never considered yourself to be a happy person, but would like to be –perhaps I can help you find ways to be happy if that is what you wish! Happiness or contentment is a state of mind, more difficult to achieve if you are a natural pessimist, or one who considers their glass half empty as opposed to half full. I cannot promise that you can change the concept you have held all your life, but if you want to try look up instead of always looking down then perhaps some of my thoughts and suggestions in the next few months may help you. There has been a lot of research into happiness and why some people are generally happy while others are prone to being unhappy. Therefore, if you would like to be happier than you are at the moment. First go to Your Autumn Connected 21 – page 26 and have a read, or read again if you can’t remember what Bishop Emma wrote. Will try to write another article about being happy next month… Joan Vine.
