Sometimes you just need to take that first step and jump in. This is MY place to start. I have wanted to do this blog for a while, but I never had the courage to do it. My family and friends have encouraged me on several occasions to start this blog as a way to help me get through those moments that are dark and not so happy. I hope in the process of sharing my thoughts on finding joy in our every day, that I can help someone out there that feels as I do. Today, I am taking my first step and jumping in.
We all have trials that we have to face, some are big and some are small, but they are ours to face. No matter what it is and what stage we are in; beginning, middle, or end, we have to find a way through. There are many ways we can get through these trials and hard times and I hope to share some of those here, and that they are helpful.
Depression is one of those things that I face and deal with daily. Some days are happy, some days are sad, some days are so bad that I want to run away and hide, and some days I am content and can function with life. This blog will be my place to get some of my thoughts out of my head and to share with you, and my hope is to help someone out there in their struggle. I have learned recently that finding joy is a choice, it doesn’t just happen. We need to be actively choosing joy. This was a really hard thing for me to understand for a long time, but I am learning.
If you’re that someone that is having a not so good day, I hope I can inspire you to find at least one positive thing in your day and focus on it. Somedays it may be harder then others to find that one thing, but there is something good in every day, you just have to know where to look.
This is my place to find happiness and joy, and to share with you the struggle to find happiness during the dark times. Together we can find that daily drop of joy that will lead us to the path of happiness and finding joy in our every day.
I hope you will have joy today, and to choose joy everyday. Find at least one thing that will make your day better. I’d love to hear what your drop of joy is today, please share below in the comments. My drop of joy today is starting this blog.
