Did you know that joy is the most vulnerable emotion we feel? Those who are able to be vulnerable rather than staving it off, do so because they practice gratitude.
I was reminded of this fact when re-watching a short Brene Brown video that I sent to my client.
This piece of data kept rumbling in my mind and is the context of my journal entry today.
I want to keep choosing joy. Keep choosing gratitude. Keep choosing. I am not the victim. I am in control of my life. It might be true that having too much time on my hands doesn't work in my favor. Could I trust time? Something to consider. I'm grateful for how things are working out. I'm grateful for every single thing on my calendar. I'm grateful for my life. I am learning and up-leveling and growing my capacity for more. I'm here for it.
Uncomfortable isn't a bad thing. Actually it's a wonderful thing.
I can be uncomfortable and nothing has to be wrong.
I can feel down and nothing is wrong.
I can second-guess myself and nothing is wrong with me.
I can feel sad and nothing is wrong.
Here's my reminder today. I can have all of these feelings and not need to change a thing. In fact, I have all of these feelings and I believe everything is as it's supposed to be.
I'm with you.
