Fight Back With Joy
I’ve never described myself as joyful and I doubt that others would assign that attribute to me either. I suppose I thought joy was reserved for the more light-hearted and fun. Joy felt like a privilege I wasn’t intended to possess.
These were all self-conscious assumptions. In fact, if probed I would agree that joy was a fruit of the spirit I should be seeking but it seemed unattainable and not fitting for who I am – one who is known to be a serious, contemplative type.
So when my friend Margaret Feinberg chose to fight back with joy while battling the toughest experience of her life, I took note. How could she choose joy when her world was so dark and difficult? How could she choose joy with unknown outcomes? How could she choose joy when what she felt was despair?
“We don’t just sense joy; we embody it by how we respond to the circumstances before us.”
Margaret has modeled what it looks like to fight back with joy and we’re the beneficiaries of her fight.
