“Man is fond of counting his troubles, but he does not count his joys. If he counted them up as he ought to, he would see that every lot has enough happiness provided for it.” Fyodor Dostoevsky 1821-1881, Writer
I am declaring today a national holiday for counting your JOYS! You woke up today- let’s start there. As humans, we may feel the need to complain because we want to be validated by others. We need our life experience or story to be heard so that our pain or troubles are recognized. We may think that we may get more in our life if we follow the victim role than if we are seen as strong. In many ways, we have this all wrong. Life is meant to be happy and filled with joy. The laws of attraction says what you give out you get back. So if you are concentrating your time too much on what is wrong in your life, you may get more of the same. Imagine, if you make a shift and thought that if you concentrate on what is going right in your life, all the good would multiply – wouldn’t you rather have that! Just take a look at your life and notice where your joys are and talk about that- your energy will change and your life could just turn around- so start with today, maybe take 5 minutes and count your joys and have a great holiday from your woes- it may just be what the doctor ordered- sharing a smile with you on this beautiful Friday for those who may need one, a little brightness if you day is otherwise!
