“Joy is a decision, a really brave one, about how you are going to respond to life.”
With all that is happening in our world, it may be hard to find the joy within it. But it is there. And, as Weiss Stafford puts it in today’s quote joy is a decision and one that is how we respond to life. I think this serves as a reminder that we can not control what is happening around us and also to us but we can control our response to it. We decide this. we decide to choose joy which can really be on of the hardest decisions anyone can make. But I believe in life we must find the joy in order to overcome even the worst circumstances. When we don’t, we have chosen defeat. We have chosen to be miserable or sad. It doesn’t mean we should never feel or experience those things but we must not let them overshadow the joy that can be that light that we all seek. Be brave. Be bold. Choose joy.
