Some days JOY is a gift. Other days it’s an all-out BATTLE. – Unknown
Let’s keep it real.
Yes, we can choose to be joyful. We appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. We are grateful for all of our blessings. We smile bravely in the midst of struggle. Somedays.
But somedays – we do all of these same things and do not FEEL joy.
I forge ahead – complete chores, get my body moving, eat well…
On days when JOY doesn’t overwhelm us, we press on with confidence that like the sun on a cloudy day, JOY is with us – we just can’t feel it.
That feels a bit cliche but JOY is more than a feeling – joy is an attitude, a state of being rooted in hope, an acceptance of the dreary realities of life.
What do you do on days when choosing JOY feels like an all-out battle?
