Don’t let life kill your joy.
Joy is such a wonderful thing on this earth. It basically keeps you going day to day.
There are things on this planet that are joy killers and we create them in our minds most of the time.
Let’s take a look at a few joy killers.
This is one of the worst killers of our joy. It creates a false picture in your mind. When you compare your job, house, cars, body, and life to someone else’s…you’ll never be at peace or satisfied with yourself or your life.
Strive to be a better person and never stop working hard…but don’t compare to others. This I’ve found is my number one killer of my peace and joy.
Overthinking and over analyzing a situation can kill your joy so fast it isn’t even funny.
When you overthink through a situation you may create a problem that isn’t even there. I know from personal experience that this can be both challenging and near impossible. When you are an over thinker like me, you have to try extremely hard not to do this. It’s almost impossible at times to not do. It just happens. I promise you can overcome this overthinking process. I’m learning.
Lack of communication.
Having a lack of communication can lead to the above, overthinking and over analyzing. It can create problems that don’t exist. Have communication with those around you. Speak. Let your thoughts come out and make them known. I promise it will help the overthinking. I promise.
I am the queen of all these things. I have them down to a T. I am so good at killing my own joy. I am so good at creating problems that aren’t even there. I’m so good at killing my own joy.
It’s such an easy thing to do. It’s so easy to let these small things turn into big problems.
Take a few deep breaths.
When we step back and look at our lives…if we put things into perspective…we have so many reasons to be so filled with joy.
With the attacks over the weekend…that’s something to think about. You could of been there. And you weren’t. For that alone, be thankful.
Keep positive. Keep joy. Life is short and you deserve it. I promise.
