J-O-Y: Don't Let Anyone Take It Away



  1. a feeling of great pleasure and happiness: "Tears of joy" synonyms: delight · great pleasure · joyfulness · jubilation · triumph · exultation · [more]

During these trying times such as rising inflation, daily reminders of social issues and the pressures accompanying our responsibilities - our air is tense. Whether I am visiting the grocery store or speaking with people I am gathering that so many of us are on the receiving end of unearthed tension. Is it me to blame for another feeling angry or redirecting negative energy?

To be honest I am fighting each day to protect the joy I feel. I am blessed to be able to have a healthy mind, body and spirit. I am blessed to have the wherewithal to take care of my family. I am blessed to remain calm, respectful and motivated although the waters I am in feel testy.

Despite whatever you may be going through please remember to take care of yourself. Set aside time to meditate. Set aside time to get centered. Set aside time to devote improving yourself.

We cannot control others. But we can control how we react. Negative energy is toxic so decide to rid it out of your space. Remain respectful and keep focused on your purpose.

They may be "BIG" mad but we're not. We're blessed with JOY!

"The joy of the Lord is my strength” (Nehemiah 8:10)
