How our days are for us depends on our perspective. It is so easy to fall into the trap of negativity, but to find joy in life, we must change our perception … we must refocus our minds to see the positive things that happen each day in our lives.
I’m not saying to put on blinders and not see the sad things, but when you focus your mind on simple joys like the person who held the door for you, the person who smiled and said “have a nice day”, or the “thank yous” – over time you’ll find it easier to notice the positive in life and find more joy. Let go of the negativity … experience the joy in life … find happiness.
Once you do … Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really area. – Marianne Williamson
