Good Wednesday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: Living a life of courage, strength, forgiveness, love and joy is a matter of choosing to do so. When you meet people who inspire you with their lives you may find yourself questioning how they do it. Was it the family they were raised in or the school they attended as a child? Many influences help create the person you become, however, none are as important as what you choose to be. If you choose joy, you will find yourself being more joyful. No one can make you choose courage over fear or love over hate; it’s an inside job. Everyone wants love, joy, forgiveness, courage and strength, but until you’re willing to make the sacrifices required to choose those qualities, you will continue to believe it is something they have that you don’t. The light shines in everyone, but not everyone is able to see or trust it.
