She would not allow herself to be defined by the struggles in her life. She chose, instead, to amplify those things that gave her great joy — and that list was very long. – Queenisms™
Did you ever meet someone who wears their story like a heavy wet blanket? We have to admit that there have been times in our lives where our “story” felt so soggy and heavy we could not shed it. We’d like to suggest that the way to slough off that wet garment is to amplify those things in our lives that truly give us joy. Make a list. Color it brightly. Hang it at eye level in a place you’ll see often during your day. Read it aloud. And add to that list often. Your struggles may not magically go away, but we guarantee you that your ability to see a way forward, to enjoy your life journey more and to be move away from the oppressive feeling of being stuck in your difficult moments will lessen. What’s on your joy list?
