This Year I Choose Joy
Life is too short not to be happy. I know that letting things get to me is one of my biggest weaknesses. I worry about the future. I mull over the past. I stress over small stuff and fail to take time to enjoy life in the present. Despite my "dreamer" mantra, I am quick to forget that life is good right now.
So this year I choose JOY to inspire me to live a happier life. I will find joy in the little moments. I will start each day fresh, hopeful and full of joy. I will be joyful for the numerous gifts of love I am afforded every single day and often overlook. I will take joy in the fact that I am an artist and I have the support of my family and a wonderful creative community. I will take joy in little laughs, blue skies, paint, meals together, stories shared, hard work, opportunity, a pillow to lay my head on, and those who watch over me. I will be joyful because there is no reason not to be. I choose JOY.
What will you choose to guide you through 2014?
