YOU and keeping JOY every day
Remember that even SMILING helps keep your CELLS happy so
just imagine having JOY every day does to your health and aging.
We all go through trauma during our lifetime and hopefully, we
can go through it and come out of that tunnel as fast as possible.
I am a believer that the longer we allow ourselves to be grieve,
have anxiety, hang onto anger, do not forgive SELF or others,
then the longer, we will not have JOY. We each deserve JOY and
to have it every day, even for a few minutes every day is a
wonderful and JOYful thing.
Here from the tinybuddha.com website are some tips for JOY.
- Tell a new story change your story into whatever you want it to be.
- Feel the thoughts that make you feel good.
The sun in your face. Sitting on your deck. Being with a
Loved one. Thinking happy memories.
- Spring clean your belief system
Beliefs are only thoughts that we keep thinking. No belief is
set in stone.
- Get happy now
- get into gratitude
- create a bliss board
fill a board with [ictures, captions or words that you want your life to reflect.
- Take a lea[ of faith.

JOY is a state of mind. We are going to go through valleys and
mountain tops in our life. If you have not had those valleys and
mountain tops than I believe YOU should start a journal about
why those 2 emotions have not been in your life. But, for most of
us that have had those emotions and feelings in our life than to
find that JOY we all need for most of our life we need to:
Let go of anger
SMILE and have JOY today
