Today I learned...
Joy is a choice.
I could write an entire series on this - and who knows, maybe I will, I still have 342 days to do it.
It's a seed you might want plant in your brain early this year and see what grows by spring.
You choose your mood. Choose a good one. In fact, choose joy. No matter how painful your joints are, what bills are due, who is sick or dying, who won the Superbowl (go Hawks!), where you live or what you're afraid is coming around the corner, you can choose to be joyful for the blessings in your life. Heck, you can choose to be joyful for no reason at all. I won't tell.
Why not? What's the worst that could happen?
