What is behind you? What is the anger festering inside of you? What fuels your dislike of a situation or a person? Do you really think you were created to live this way in your earthly life? Do you realize you have the power to be chose to be happy and not angry at the world?
Make a joy list this morning. Focus on the happy things, the simple things and the things you do have. During the day make a point to shift your focus when you encounter pain or frustration. Put on your favorite music, or start singing your favorite song in your head. Make yourself go in a different direction. You do not need to fall into the pain or frustration. Begin a new habit to focus on things that bring you happiness, things you enjoy.
Learn to allow pain or negative emotions to pass through you. Acknowledge them and then let them go. Make way for joy to come in. Accept what you cannot change and move on.
Tomorrow try something else. What would it take to bring joy to you right at this moment? Can you do that special thing for someone else in your life? Make it happen for someone else and then surprise... the joy will come to you.
Forgive others and learn to ask for their forgiveness. Put it all behind you.
" For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins." Matthew 6:14-15
