I had an exhilarating Anusara inspired yoga class on Sunday. The teacher used this quote by Joseph Campbell to open class: “find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.” The lesson of the class? Finding your joy takes effort but it’s important work.
I have been working on finding the joy in my life: taking on less projects(many of which don’t pay enough anyways) and trying not to over extend myself. It is so easy to bury oneself in projects and work, without asking what do I really want? How do you find time to work on yourself in this mad world we live in? Sometimes I wish I could be more like my dog Max. He finds joy in the everyday.
