Repeat after me: I am alive, not simply surviving. I find joy in each day.
To be alive is different than simply living. Living is quite simply a state of not being dead yet. To be ALIVE is to be active…lively…spry.
Simply waking up is NOT enough. Do not let this be enough for you. Wake up and create an awesomely full life. Despite your circumstances, there has to be something you can find some joy in. Life can get redundant. Your issues and obstacles will never quite go away. Bc just as soon as you navigate one thing, a different thing pops up. So the trick is learning to put things in their proper perspective. Recognize a test is simply in this moment. And anything (outside of death) is overcome-able.
Sometimes you have to put on some new lenses to adjust your perspective. Sometimes you might accidentally overlook some possible happiness by simply not seeing it. Perfection is a terribly high standard to base your happiness on. But as you progress thru your life, something is going well. Take some time to relish in the process of life…the small things. Many times the small pieces of happiness that you find, will add up to a bunch of JOY! Just look for it! And make it a good one…on purpose!
