Thanks for that info! You can't see in the photo, but I did staple it to the joist just on the other side of the light fixture, which is certainly within 12" and might be more like 8" (the fixture is maybe 4" across at the base plus about another 4" gap between it and the box).You need to better secure the romex coming from out of the junction box. I believe you need a staple within at least 12" of the box. You can't just have romex floating in the air like that without anything securing it.
If need be I guess I could add a staple in the side of the joist right above the box...
