I’ve been laying in bed for the past day or so with a bad cold. I haven’t done an outfit post in a while so you may not remember that I always wear a necklace that says “choose joy” on it. I need that reminder every. single. day. whether I’m healthy or sick, happy or sad, busy or bored. Often times I forget that joy is a choice and I don’t have to be sad or depressed even though a situation might lend itself to those negative emotions. It is now in the hard place that I need the joy that comes from Jesus the most. This morning I started thinking about how God uses so many little things to bless us, and if we aren’t looking for them then we will probably miss them. I challenged myself to start looking for ways to be thankful and joyful while I’m sick.
