It is an honor and a privilege to once again connect with my readers. A lot of things are happening around the entire world. The 2016 election is upon us, the Olympics are in full swing and the summer is slowing winding down. There is a lot of violence and sadness taking place in the world. Even as I am blogging I am hearing on the news that a 10 year child was shot today. Enough is Enough. One reason we have so much hatred in the world is because people don't have joy on the inside. If people can find LOVE, PEACE and JOY in their souls, their actions and reactions would be different. I would like to share this message with you about CHOOSING JOY. My hope is that you will breathe it in and as you blow the breath of rest out, PLEASE pass it on to someone else. Let's spread Love one to another so we can rest in CHOOSING JOY.
Ironically, the more we try to control others, the more we are controlled. Our emotions become reactions to others rather than reflecting true choices. Joy, to us becomes no more than fleeting moments of relief tied to the moods and behaviors of others.
Joy is a choice. We can choose to let go of attempts to control people, relationships, and situations, and thereby free ourselves from their control. We can choose to let go of anger and resentment when others don't fulfill our expectations. We can choose to live our own lives and work on our own growth.
Joy isn't having everyone and everything go our way. It grows out of a quiet choice to accept the things we can't control and concentrate on changing what we can-OURSELVES.
I CHOOSE JOY BY ACTING ON MY OWN BEHALF RATHER THAN REACTING TO OTHERS!!!!!!
