I choose joy.
It's so simple. It's so complex. It's a choice. My thoughts have wondered back to this so often in the past few weeks. My little corner of the universe was painfully rocked a couple weeks ago. I decided in just a few hours that I was still going to have my Best Year Ever. I chose joy. Was I happy in that moment? Nope. Did it feel good? No. But I chose joy.
Are there variables in life we can't control? Absolutely! I'm still choosing joy. Sometimes it's really just a subtle shift that pops us right out of the negativity. Am I always joyful? No, and that's OK.
How do you feel when you choose joy?
