Joy lies in your heart
Let it grow and transform you
Find Your Middle Ground
~

Joy and gratitude go hand in hand. It may be ignited by certain people, circumstances or memories, but it is already there. The more grateful we are, the more we realize we have enough, and more.

When we pause and take time to be present, we learn to let go of our conditioning and what we Β think we “should” be doing. We begin to notice the little things and let them light up our lives.

We step into the fullness of life.

I call thisΒ Finding your Middle Ground.

  15. In my very short knowledge of your blog. It already helps a lot! This is an award free blog, I noticed, but I would still love to nominate you as a mystery blogger. Perhaps more people would someday be enlightened by the simplicity of magnificent posts.

    Thank you so much.

  16. Val, I’m just now reconnecting with the JOY in my Heart. You have no idea how good it feels to FEEL Love again, to FEEL real JOY again. I’ve been so immersed in too much pain but it seems yesterday I’ve broken through. Thank you for these words. I embrace them!! 🌹

    • Yes indeed Amy. When we have been struggling with loss and negative feelings, our hearts close. We forget how to feel … until love shows the way.
      So glad you have found your heart center again. πŸ™β€οΈ
