JOY up

I’m guilty of it too.

I found myself scrolling Facebook and feeling envious of all the beautiful families.

I love my life. I wouldn’t have it any other way.


we can all fall prey to that feeling that the grass is greener on the other side.

especially this time of year when it seems everyone is posting some holiday goodness. I’ve learned to be thankful, not just for my life the way it is, but also for my friends and families’ lives and the blessings they have.

I am thankful they are happy, healthy, and blessed.

The grass is not greener on the other side.

The grass is greener where it’s watered.

I submit to you that JOY is an act, a verb. At the very least it’s a choice.

A hard choice to focus on the things in our lives that bring us JOY

We can choose JOY. We can choose to hold fast to those things in our lives that bring us JOY.

There is abundance of JOY in our lives already.

The choice we have is whether to look at that abundance or our scarcity.

Choose JOY.

til next week
