Joy is only a thought away. I choose joy.

As I look back on my life, I may notice how my spirits have ebbed and flowed. I may remember days of deep sadness and days overflowing with laughter. There have been periods of optimism and passion, and times of sorrow.

Awareness of my emotions creates an opening for change. As I connect with Spirit, I feel peace, love and happiness flow through me. I notice that when I change my thoughts, my emotions change.

When I am feeling sadness, fear or anxiety, I remember that the choice is mine to keep my mind and heart attuned to Spirit. My every thought, word and action is an expression of the Spirit within.

I choose joy right here and right now.

The kingdom of God is not food and drink but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.--Romans 14:17
