About Joy

She’s neither tall nor short. Hip nor smart. Fast nor slow.
Joy is an emotion that rests in all of our hearts.
Over lunch today I heard the all too often worried conversation from one of my classmates.
“What happens when we finish school? Will I get a job?”
That would be perfect. Complete this monumental investment in ourselves and get a lucrative seat somewhere that jived with all of our learnings and creative juice.
The harsh reality is, that there are no guarantees.
Then one of the administrators sitting with us chimed in and got me mulling.
“Don’t kill the joy,” she said.
The way I heard that was, stop worrying. Keep going.
How very true.
So about that joy...
