A story of joy

A story of joy

The one thing, for me, that blocks the joy on your journey is worry…worry about money, worry about security, the need to protect yourself. Yet, the funny thing is, you can choose … to worry, to doubt, to get stressed or, find joy in life… no matter what’s happening.

Even if you’re grieving for someone you’ve lost, you can feel sad, and, feel joy internally in the fact that they are now at peace. I experienced that recently when a dear friend died.

Of course, it’s not easy to stop worrying about not knowing this or that if you are a bit of a control freak! What you can do, however, is manage the things you can that will give you a sense of comfort. So, if you’re travelling, for example, carry with you your favourite sweater, music that you love, your journal, a photo, a candle….

Then…imagining your life as a book, look at what the adventure is all about for you, take delight in life, in the little things, and enjoy being you. The more you choose to to see the beauty in yourself, others, the world around you, the more your life becomes a source of joy and you can be at peace with who you are.
