Food for the day.

Friends,

Remember that joy is not dependent on your circumstances. Some of the world’s most miserable people are those whose circumstances seem the most enviable. People who reach the top of the ladder career-wise are often surprised to find emptiness awaiting them. True Joy is a by-product of living virtuously and serving our fellow man.

Therefore you can experience Joy in palaces, in prisons … anywhere.

Do not judge a day as devoid of Joy just because it contains difficulties. Instead, concentrate on living little Virtues that will add to your eulogy instead of your resume.

Most of the problems that scream for your attention today will resolve themselves. Let them go.

Some matters you must deal with, but virtue will always help you deal with them.

If you make problem-solving secondary to the goal of living with virtue, you can find Joy even in your most difficult days.
