Choose Joy

Choose Joy

Ya know what’s fun?

Being happy.
Choosing joy.
Even when darkness creeps in, choosing not to let it stay. Honoring it, looking at it, but letting it go and doing whatever it takes to choose happy again.

Happiness truly is a choice. One you get to make every morning and then a thousand more times all day, every day. Continue reading “Choose Joy”

Falling In Love and Being In Love

Falling In Love and Being In Love

There is a difference between falling in love and BEING in love.

Falling in love is easy. People do it all the time. Sure, it can be scary sometimes but it’s not a hard thing to do.

But being in love is a totally different animal. I don’t mean the difference between having loving feelings for someone and “being in love”. I’m talking about the day in day out activity of being IN love. Choosing it consciously every day. Working at it. Talking about what you like and don’t like. Listening. Forgiving. Understanding. Standing still. Going crazy. Climbing high. Diving deep. Building empires. Taking down walls. Supporting. Encouraging. Compassion. Honestly. Continue reading “Falling In Love and Being In Love”

I Choose You

I Choose You

“I choose you”. A friend and I were having a conversation today and this came up and it instantly became so apparent to me that people do not put enough emphasis on that statement.

Sure we love each other and that’s great and it can be powerful but what about the fact that you CHOOSE that person?

I don’t know about you, but to me that almost holds more precedence than saying I love you. In romantic relationships I don’t think you can have the commitment of “I choose you” without the foundation of “I love you” but I do believe that you can have the “ I love you” without the choosing.

Start Choosing Love

Start Choosing Love

People die unexpectedly every day.
People who were perfectly healthy yesterday drop dead with no warning. It makes me a little nauseous just thinking about it sometimes but it’s the truth.

What if someone you thought you had more time with turns out to be one of those people?

Would you have words left unsaid? feelings left unshared?

Don’t be the guy who walks around the rest of his life saying “I wish I would have said ‘this’ when I had the chance ”.

That line right there is a heavy one to carry.

And why? Because being honest is scary? Or maybe your pride gets in the way so you don’t say what you feel?

Ask yourself: Will that pride or fear be worth it if tomorrow never comes?

Speak your words to the people in your life. Tell that person how you feel. Chances are, they have NO idea.

Look, I’m not trying to be morbid. I am trying to prevent the large group of people who live with regret and guilt everyday because they simply don’t tell the truth or share their feelings.

Because they let fear win, no matter how much they don’t want to ever admit that that is the case.

That voice that stops you from sharing what’s in your heart? That’s fear.

That feeling you feel that makes you want to share in the first place? That’s love.

Start choosing LOVE every time and lighten your own load .
