Joy in The Journey

I just read Lauri's latest post and it has touched my heart. She quoted from Pres. Monson's talk on finding joy in the journey ..“Both abundance and lack [of abundance] exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend … when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present—love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature, and personal pursuits that bring us [happiness]—the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth.”

I love this quote and want to make it a part of my life. I usually do find joy in the journey, but it seems I do so by accident. I am going to try to consciously do this each day, no matter matter who gets in my way. So I going to follow Lauri's lead and use Joy as my word for the year. Thanks Lauri!
