Go, eat you food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do.
– Ecclesiastes 9:7
There is no greater feeling in the world, than having a heart full of joy. When you are joyous, you have a light about you that shines in the darkest of corners. Your spirit is noticed everywhere you go, and people continuously flock to you. We are each capable of being that happy. We just have to change our negative thoughts into positive ones, and find that glorious place of delight! If you are holding on to anything that is troubling you, discouraging you, or holding you back, let go of it! Go out and seek your peace!
Use this week, as a week of self reflection. Seek out the areas of your life that are holding you back from your joy! Find some positive affirmations and repeat them to yourself daily. Your joy is in your reach!
Today I chose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain……To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I chose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but to embrace it.
