While I was walking home I was feeling down. I called on Joy but it didn't seem to be working. Even when I was walking by the canal, which I usually love, I felt empty inside.
I figured I would stop off at this library for my weekly guilty pleasures to browse through their glossy magazines. Maybe, that will cheer me up. It didn't work. Happy people in their happy homes with their happy families only made me feel more miserable.
I then had an idea to wish the people in the magazine happiness and joy.
The moment I did I felt something shift in me and all this happiness gushing out. I continued to flick through the magazine and wishing all happiness and joy. By the time I'd finished browsing through those three glossies, I was as high as a kite.
I had the Joy in me all along I just needed to bring it out by giving it away.
Joy to all!
