When you’re full of joy, give it away and it will be returned to you when you need it. Share your smiles and hugs and words of encouragement, and feel the reflection of these sunny thoughts and feelings shining back on you. Remember that when you sow seeds of optimism in someone else’s life they will bloom for you too, someday.
If you keep recalling painful or hurtful memories realize that you’re only punishing yourself. Don’t get stuck on a treadmill in your mind that takes you round and round but get you nowhere. Let that hurt go, just as you would untie a knot.
God is always present with us, let us take the time to notice and thank God for all the gifts given us.
