“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”

~Marianne Williamson

Most human beings suffer from a tendency to see the negative in people, situations, and most damaging – themselves.  If you remember a moment of joy in your life, you will realize that your joy stemmed from noticing, accepting and embracing the good around you.  Joy is a choice:  choose to see the plentiful examples of good in you, in your life and in the world; embrace it with gratitude, and experience the joy.  As joy begets joy, you will impact not only yourself but those around you.  Choose joy.
