Reflection in a Koi pond
The work I do often reflects the inner workings of life.
It shows nothing of the complexity and hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make it.
Just like life.
We all have inner and outer struggles. Events that, if we allow them to, could bring us a life of anger and bitterness.
Life can be hard and difficult things happen to everyone.
We have a choice though.
For me I chose joy.
Even when choosing that seems impossible.
How to find it?
Reflect on all those past things that brought you happiness.
Reflect on all the little things that you are grateful for.
Look at the small things and smile each and every day.
Grateful for the family, friends, flowers, trees, a smile, the sun and delicious food.
Just be grateful for something small!
By the end of each day, you'll be amazed at how much you have to be grateful for!
You'll feel happier.
Don't look for big things to bring you your gratitude and joy.
It is the totality of those moments, those little things, of noticing, finding gratitude and joy that add up to the sum of our day and ultimately our lives.
Take a moment each day for Reflection💗
