Life is not always about puppies, hugs, and an unlimited supply of my favorite tortilla chips! There are times when “embracing my joy” eludes me. The challenging times. The moments that are often most memorable but I’d rather forget. But this is the essence of life, isn’t it? This is what makes us who we are. And it’s the multitude of these experiences that allow me to feel this life I’m living.
As misery breeds only sorrow, so does joy inspire moments of peace, snippets of laughter and, simply put, a more pleasurable life. As I move forward in my life, I do so with enthusiasm for more and everlasting hope. I’m grateful for the joyful moments knowing it’s only the beginning. There’s more to come.
And through it all, my faith is unwavering.
