I have always lived life with the perspective of the glass being half full. Living with this mentality translates into many more moments full of joy that may look otherwise if my perspective was different and the glass was half empty. You can’t always control your situation, but you can always control your perspective!
In Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV) we are encouraged to be always be joyful:
“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Sometimes circumstances in our life can make it hard to find a way to embrace joy. With constant comparison, unexpected challenges and the yearning of always wanting more, how do you find ways to embrace joy in your life? I have found that it can be fairly simple, but you have to be intentional with reminding yourself of the blessings you have and embracing each moment and exactly where God has you.
I am loving embracing this stage in my life and living it up with my family and friends while enjoying so many new experiences. I am so happy and content with where God has me right now, and it’s an amazing feeling to soak up every moment instead of waiting for the next big thing to come. Over the past few months I have learned to dream in color once again, and honestly, it feels absolutely incredible!
I haven’t been able to blog consistently lately, and quite honestly, it’s because my life has been so full of so many wonderful things…all the while fully embracing the joyful moments in my life!
Check out the photos below for the ways I have been embracing joy!
All of these photos make me feel so blessed and so full of happiness. Regardless of what you may be experiencing in your life right now, I hope you are finding ways to embrace the joyful moments in your life!
