Joy | Gratitude

📝Joy is an internal emotion it exists despite hardships and traumatic experiences. Joy is your soul foundation, that connects you to your source (God), and it helps you appreciate life’s benefits: family, friends nature, freedom, your home, your body…

🗣 I now accept my joy comes from within. Loving and accepting who I am today activates my Joy. I give myself permission to tap into my joy. #Affirmation #NaturallyACT

📖 The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. ~ Psalm 28:7

Gratitude is apart of the journey to happiness. Happiness isn’t earned, won, consumed or even given. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, consistency, and gratitude! #NaturallyACT

LEAN

Dear Insecurity, I have decided to break up with you (after listening to the podcast episode Dear consistency, I have decided to stop breaking up with you. – Tough Skin Soft Heart by Shannon Cohen.)!

Insecurity, now that we are no longer in a relationship my focus is to practice being objective, reflecting on my successes/accomplishments, learning from my mistakes, assessing my circumstances, engaging in positive self-talk. I have made a full commitment to practice Self-Appreciation

 

It takes courage to left go of old mindsets. Today, reflection “Learn how to love yourself. Process failure and disappointment as EVENTS not who you are” – quote by @myleik

I’ve found myself leaning a lot this past year. I am blessed to have amazing friends who I can lean on. I was challenged to lean further into my creativity. But this year I also found myself leaning on to my own understanding at times. There were times where I tried to take matters into my own hands and those were the times I felt unstable. Here I am. Wiser. Stronger. Better. I commit to confessing Proverbs 3:5-6 over my life and pray that my heart would not be weary while waiting.
