One of the most rebellious choices one can make in this day and age is joy. Joy is a revolutionary act. Too much of our culture gives the spotlight to those who are miserable and we can all sense the discontent in the air. It’s a shame that the world works overtime to squash out our humanity and tries to make us cogs in a machine.
If you are going to say yes to joy, it may also mean you have to say no to something else–feeling sorry for yourself.
You might feel like you’re done, but the truth is you’re not. Not yet anyway. Don’t let the culture change the fact that life while a struggle is also beautiful too.
