As a gentle breeze softly touches our faces with warm sunshine, some Kingos might feel relaxed by the refreshing air of spring and enjoy the gorgeous weather. However, at the same time, there might also be some Kingos feeling too stressed out or concerned about the passage of time to enjoy April. There may be uncertainty in minds questioning if they are on the right track. As such, time surely flies, not giving us a moment to put our minds together or relax in this busy life. Time flows the same for everyone, but some would spend days with a smile and some without a smile. So, I want to ask a question for those who may have lost their smiles. What is your joy in life?
Joy is like twinkle lights, as the American professor Brené Brown once said. It usually comes to us unexpectedly to brighten up our complicated and, perhaps, dark minds. And like twinkling lights, joy is not a constant feeling. I think we miss many of those lights, for some are not too bright to be recognized or for other brighter lights cover a faint glow. When people think of a joyful moment, it is likely to be some special memories with lovers, friends, or families. However, more than that, I think there is definitely joy in our everyday life that we easily miss out on for chasing down a busy schedule. Eating chocolate when getting up in the morning, listening to music when working on assignments, or drinking cold water after exercising gives joy to me. Perhaps, reading the magazine of the Sungkyun Times (SKT) might liven up your day, too. As such, these trivial things can be another joy easily found that can brighten up our minds. For Kingos who may have lost their smiles and happiness, I hope you find joy in the little things in your everyday life.
