just a quick reminder that if we put forth the effort, we can be miserable no matter where we are. 😂
however, the opposite can also be true! 👍🏻
as my friend, Marty Martin, always says – “Choose joy!” 😁
choosing joy doesn’t mean we won’t have challenging, crummy things happen to us, or that we won’t have difficult times in life. choosing joy, is choosing our perspective, our lens through which we view life. there’s no dark cloud over our lives, there’s no bad luck. there are life events, there are challenges and difficulties – all of which are opportunities to learn, to grow, to practice our love, our compassion, our kindness, our patience, our healing. life is always moving and changing so there is opportunity for newness, for freshness – after winter, spring. 🌻
we get to experience this precious life – that’s something to be joyful about.
