Many of us have noticed it while looking out the window of a plane: Once you break through the clouds, the sun is always there on the other side. The metaphor here is to ask yourself: What’s blocking your light? What’s in the way of your joy?
So, why is this so incredible? Because, as simple as it should be to allow joy in, most people go through life allowing darkness to cloud their light—when they just don’t have to. To be joyful is your true and natural state, just as the sun is always shining brightly, beyond the clouds.
Want to know something else kind of cool? Joy is contagious. Spread joy and your own happiness will expand and grow. Try it!
