Love. Joy. Happiness.

As we enter October, which is always one of my toughest months, I want to start off by saying something simple, but positive.

I love. I experience joy. I seek happiness.

There is nothing that keeps me going more than reminding myself of those three things.

“Joy comes from the heart. It is not relative to the happenings or events of life, but rather to one’s deepest desires. As they are fulfilled, the heart opens, and true joy is experienced.

True joy can’t be managed. Only experienced.

It is a state of being.”

Love is who I am.
Joy is my state of being.

6 months after this post went up, I finally got my Happiness tattoo.

April 2022. Took the photo before it was fully healed. But, Happiness is one of my most powerful motivators.
