" Nem todos os dias terá sol.
Nem todas as rosas terá perfume.
Nem todas as pessoas serão amáveis.
Nem todas as respostas será "sim".
Nem todas as lutas serão vencidas.
Eu sei que as vezes não será fácil,
que nem tudo será como eu quero ou espero,
mas será como Deus quer, e tenho a certeza de que o querer de Deus é o melhor para mim.
Isso é Deus, me ensinando a viver"

Sometimes we can stop ourselves from experiencing joy because some part of us believes that it's dependent on something else. Another moment in the future, moments in the past, a lover, a dream coming into physical reality, money, time with friends etc. The key to life is remembering joy is experienced when you choose it to be. It comes from within you, It's not dependant on anything outside of you. It is a choice you make. There is a magical experience to have everyday on this planet, It's up to you to allow yourself to experience it, no expectations of how your joy will come, choosing to feel the joy NOW. - crazy anxiety today but I made myself get out of the house and go for a walk🙏 it's okay not to be okay be easy on yourself please 💖
When assessing any given situation, the picture we create for ourselves is never the whole picture -- it's usually made up of some facts we know for sure, but the rest is made of impressions and judgments we've slapped together based on our own past experiences, insecurities and biases.⠀
We can't help but bring ourselves into every situation though. Our past experiences have shaped the way we look at the world. But it's dangerous to think you know everything you can possibly know about any situation and make a judgment based on that. It's usually the things we miss, our blind spots, that end up causing us unnecessary pain. Pain that could have been prevented if we allowed for the possibility that there's something we're missing -- and there's always something we're missing.⠀
Instead of coming at a situation with judgment and certainty that it's what you think it is, try infusing some curiosity into your state of mind. Curiosity softens the rigidity of judgment and allows room for the unknown. When we admit that we don't know, we open ourselves up to the opportunity to learn and grow. It allows new experiences to come into our lives and gives us new perspectives on life. At best, it can also contribute to the healing of past wounds.⠀
