Opening A Window

I needed a quote about joy this week, about how if you persist you can get it back if you’ve lost it. I thought this quote said what I wanted to say perfectly.

“…keep knocking, and the Joy inside will eventually open a window and look out to see who’s there.”

Rumi

Hope you have a week full of open windows and Joy….

  2. Hi Selma
    as you may know, I am a great quotes fan – I love Rumi but had not come across this one before. Thank you – and may Joy visit you again before too long….it has its own agenda, and arrives, in my experience, when and where you least expect it.

  3. Never say die, try try again, never give up. It’s there we just have to keep at it til we find it.

    Great quote to start the week. πŸ˜€

  4. I thought the quote referred to joy that was inside you, that needed to have a window opened to get out and see who to share it with. If my interpretation is valid, you have that in spades, dear Selma!

  5. Excellent quote, Selma, and one we all need to remember! I tell people I care about every day… “hang on… tough times don’t last”. You know it, I know it. We are stronger than we ever knew, and most amazingly, joy can and does return! Beautiful, uplifting post, thank you dear sister!
