    Adventuring and trying new things. And of course trusting the universe enough to let people in.

    I feel more alive when my children or grandchildren have something to smile about, those smiles are priceless (worth more than gold).

    I must say though, I am a push over for compliments.  When I am complimented or my work is complimented, I get that wind under my wings, feeling.

    I am Alpha and I am Omega. The first and the last. The beginning and the end.

    Not to be a downer, but it has been a very long time since I felt any zest in life.

    My joy is traveling around the world meeting different people and learning about their style of living. It is through communication with them and knowing their culture has injected my soul alive.

    When you listen to them and sometimes their frustration, you will realize that you may have better joy in life. We tend to feel that our lives are no better than anyone's else but when you travel and seeing what is going on else where, you will discover that the joy we are receiving is making us alive.

    I love the experience of seeing things differently and it makes me feel alive.

    Seeing others happy brings me joy, the relationships I form with others (friends, family, etc) also bring me joy.

    When I really figure out what I want..

    Some times I crib for things unnecessary and get stressed over a lot of problems. Those are the most difficult moments for me. Then, I will try to come away from all that into a different world - like going to a new place or going for a walk/run, etc. Then slowly I realize that I detached from all the problems, and then I will start to feel that they are not problems at all. At that moment, I realize joy in me for I am ready to give a damn to all of it and move away. Then I slowly realize what I really need and that fires my soul. I remember all the instances from my past that make me proud and it makes me feel so alive!! This is pretty repetitive with me, but helps me a lot!!

    A multitude of things do this, but specifically, the elements (earth, air, fire, water), music, animals, and just being alive. Realizing and remembering all I have achieved and who I have become.
