“To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy…is to set our own conditions to the events of each day. To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. — Thich Nhat Hanh
Joy is your natural and native state! Your being is always trying to return to Joy. Resolve to be Joyful. You do this by getting out of bed with a smile. Finding moments throughout the day that make you smile.
You do it by contemplating the Joy you take in your home, family, loved ones, and nature. Invite Joy into your heart by imagine yourself filled with Joy! Let your life become a smile.
Reflection: When are you most joyful in your ordinary day? How can you invite joy into your heart and your life?
Affirmation: I am a joy-filled, playful, open, laughing, loving being!
