It's a mantra that reminds me to focus on what is life-giving.
This doesn't mean ignoring what's wrong. This isn't about pushing aside the uncomfortable feelings. True joy doesn't work that way.
It means attending to personal growth. I notice my grief and my hurt and I work to transform it through self-compassion.
It means being deeply engaged in the issues of the world. I commit to learning how others experience pain and listen for how my gifts can be of service to a broken world.
It means expanding my understanding until I fully embrace unconditional acceptance.
This is choosing joy.
How are you invited to choose joy today?
A nice light-weight everyday earring featuring my signature organic element. All aspects of these earrings were handmade by me in my studio. They are fully sterling silver (no nickel).
They are 3cm long from the top of the hook. They are 1cm wide.
