So, my point is that I try to surround myself with reminders that will point me in the direction of finding joy. There are days that are still pretty tough, and I’m not sure I would climb out of the low places on many days if I didn’t have all the sign posts of joy around me to re-focus my perspective.
Yesterday was sort of one of those low days. It was a typical Monday, but added to it was the fact that I traveled over the weekend. That always puts me a bit behind. Hence, I not only couldn’t get my “normal” accomplished yesterday but I didn’t get caught up either. Yet, by days end, I had prevented myself from falling into a “pit of despair ” 😱 by making conscious choices to purposefully focus on the good, plus (and most important) I prayed a lot (let’s be real, without Jesus, I wouldn’t be able to find the will to look for joy because my main reason for any good in life is God).
