Be a Trailblazer: Part 4 on Your Path to Joy

Choices exist in this world. Do you know what your choices are? Your path beckons.*

First is your choice to either keep living as you are living or move toward freedom and change.

If you continue to follow your routine in a life that is unhappy, neglect your yearning and fulfill the expectations of others you will maintain your status quo and gradually feel worse. If you can’t find your way to change you may try to distract yourself with activities and substances or temporary and short-lived thrills. When you emerge, you see nothing improved and your life may have disintegrated more during your absence. 

Rally Yourself to Move Forward: Part 3 of Path to Joy

A quiet self-talk statement to keep yourself centered and awake is this:  I can find my path to joy.

Bored? Restless? Lonely? Feeling guilty about wasting time? Overeating? Starving? Numbing yourself in bars? Sex becoming dull? People uninteresting?

You weren’t always like this.

You want to feel alive again. You want to wake up in the morning with a smile. You want to be eager for the day and what you will experience.

“The ultimate measure of a person is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
- Martin Luther King Jr.


And when is it not a time of challenge and controversy? When we are in moments of comfort and convenience, aren't we focusing on what's pleasant in our lives and disregarding pain in the world? We can't focus on pain all the time. That's disabling. We need to nourish ourselves and each other with love and support.
