Joy (ish)

Updated: Nov 26, 2023

When was the last time you felt real joy and actually recognized it in the moment?

I think it's been a while for me.

I get to do some really awesome things and visit amazing places too. But when I'm prepared to feel something big, something overwhelming, I just feel a little bit of something not big, something not overwhelming. It's quite anticlimactic.

I have a good life and I try my best not to take it for granted. I feel good most days with moments of sadness, anger, or frustration. But I push through, letting them fall behind as I keep moving forward.

But when talking about joy, like real overwhelming pleasure and happiness, I'm not sure the last time I felt it. The last time I felt great vs. good. The last time I felt more than just okay.

So what does that mean?

I haven't thought much about it until recently and now it's like a high I'm chasing without actually doing anything to catch it. Talking about it isn't enough, but I don't know what else to do. I have some nerve wanting more than I already have. Seeking more than what's already in my grasp. But I do. And if I'm being honest with myself, I think I will for the rest of my life.

Or maybe, it's close. Intense, unmistakable joy... Maybe.

I'll keep you posted.
