Hi! Thanks for reading...

I started my blog to encourage people that joy that goes deeper than circumstances is possible.

I learned that it would mean I need to give thanks in all things, ALL things. It started as a daily practice of finding a reason each day to be thankful, to choose joy despite my circumstances. I did a simple exercise of taking a picture and writing a simple reason why I was thankful in that moment. In the beginning it was hard! But, as each day passed I found it easier to find things to be thankful for and slowly my joy started to come. It was not the joy I had been searching for, my circumstances had not changed, in fact, they were worse, but my joy was increasing. I do not feel like I have arrived but I do feel like I am on to something and it is exciting. I want to share with you what I am learning in hopes that you to can find joy despite your circumstances.

Choose Joy!

I like what you wrote. To be "joyful in all circumstances" is also one of my life's goals. Thanks for being an encouragement. Blessings!

i agree and i think it's inspirational.

finding joy in all things is important but we mustn't be complacent.

we should rise above the circumstances we don't find favorable

best of luck,
