Joy has never been something that I've had to work hard at. My personality is one that delights in the little and searches for ways to make others smile.

I'm annoyingly bubbly. Like, seriously.

But lately it hasn't come naturally. At all. I've found this critical spirit creeping around my heart. Stealing my joy.

When people come to my mind I'm no longer soaked with empathy and compassion, but judgment.

This has got to stop. It's exhausting. And I'm tired.

I'm tired of being critical, of the negativity; the sharpness of it all. I want my words to uplift, my mind to focus on the positive.

I want to be joyous. I want to inspire joy in others.

Maybe I won't be blessed with a nature that effortlessly is joyous, that's fine. I can always choose to put on joy. Each day. Just like deodorant - essential yet easily overlooked. =)
