Choose Joy!

Hello. I know that it can very difficult for many people right around now before Christmas. It can make depression worse.

It can magnify anything that you are going through. The upcoming holidays come with some expectations of good times and when we do not foresee this happening, we can feel even worse than an average bad day or days!

During these times, it is difficult to count your blessings and to feel any joy.

I also know that it can be irritating to hear people say that feeling joy can be a choice when you are feeling low.

So, how does someone do this then?  How does someone feel true joy? How do they choose joy?

It is choosing to mentally let go of what you do not have control of- and getting professional help when need be to do this. 

And- it is choosing to look at the blessings in your life and to choose to focus on the positive.

What you choose to focus on influences your feelings and your actions.

Choose joy by making an effort to do so, to not let difficulties take you down.
