Choose JOY!

Happy Tuesday, friends! I am overwhelmed with the responses from my post yesterday. Truly overwhelmed. Thank you for making vulnerability seem so natural and responding with such grace. I wanted to wrap up yesterday's thoughts with a mindset of choosing joy. Joy is a choice. It's one of the many things I've learned over the past year. You can choose to use your story and be a light in this world or you can let your story isolate you and cause you to feel more alone than ever. I challenge you today to let a struggle that you've been dealing with come to the light. With that, joy will be a natural result because you will no longer feel chained to the problem. Everyone has something beautiful to contribute to this world. Let your impact be one that no one ever forgets. Maybe that's standing up for what you believe is right, confronting a problem you've been avoiding for months or even years, or maybe that's just flat out telling a family member or close friend, "I'm struggling." Like I said yesterday, struggling is OK. Let your joy be bigger than your hurt. Start a gratitude journal, maybe start a blog, go for a walk, talk a swim, do something spontaneous. Do what makes you happy. Don't let the chains of shame, depression, fear, and worry take away from the true joy each of us have! I hope this inspires each of you in a special way..
