Day 9: I love doing laundry and clearing my stuff and space up. I get a chance to reflect and realize that throughout life, there will always be something or someone that will try to take our joy. If it’s not a grumpy sales person, it’s a family member aggravating you, traffic jams, your flight got delayed, or your BFF is taking too long! I have declared that is best to “Not go the next 30years allowing the same people and same circumstances to frustrate you. Change your perspective. What’s upsetting you now doesn’t have to upset you anymore. You can choose to keep your cool and stay calm and steady. Remember, a relaxed state of mind is going to lengthen your life. The next time you’re tempted to be upset, ask yourself, “Is this really worth me giving up my joy?” If you’ll make this decision to not give away your joy, to live each day happy, God promises you’ll be strong, you’ll have better relationships and you’ll accomplish way more in your life. A joyful heart is good medicine! Hold on to your joy and move forward into the abundant life God has waiting for you! How about you? Do you have a special Saturday ritual?
