~~Notice when your heart leaps up in joyous exuberance....in those moments, the voice of your spirit is speaking directly to you.~~ Justine Willis Toms
I love feeling 'joyous exuberance'!! I love feeling warm fuzzies, overwhelming love, calm acceptance, and quiet peace. Focusing on these positive emotions brings...well, more joyous exuberance and warm fuzzies :) While I also have negative emotions....fears, anger, frustration, etc.....those are small, quickly over with, and forgotten as my brain goes once again towards the positives.
Why would anyone choose to dwell....to live....to wallow.....in negative emotions? I don't think many do. I think that we sometimes lose our way and can't see our way out. That's why we need those helping hands, those heartfelt hugs, those kind words. What you say, what you do, what you touch.......they all have the power of turning a life around. The miraculous ability to help heal. The gift of giving hope.
I can't change anyone's life path. I can't take away events, situations, or even words spoken. But I can and I will use what I have inside me to maybe teach someone relax just a bit. Help someone find that faith they have buried inside. Or even, perhaps, spark hope in someone who has lost their way.
You can quit smoking you know. You can be happy. You can forgive. You can.....do anything you chose to do and be anything you chose to be. You have the talents, the gifts, the lovely light that shines for others to see. Maybe you just need a kind word to bring it forth.
I believe in you. Sincere hope that you believe in yourself as well and see yourself as I see you....as we here see you....you are precious. Enjoy the world today...it's full of beauty!!
