[ joi ]
noun: joy
    a feeling of great pleasure and happiness:
    This is the official meaning of joy. I personally think that's just a little of what it means.
    I dream to have PERFECT joy. Joy is something that cant really be described.
    Lately I have found joy. not perfect, but I have found it.
    I always heard people say when they were asked how they stayed so joyful, and they would always respond with, "its a choice.".
    Every time I heard that I would just think to myself, "they make it sound so easy. its not."
    And I was right. Its not easy. But it is a choice.

    noun: choice · plural noun: choices
      an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities:
    now, this is the meaning of choice. as said there, making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities.
    So you can choose.
    I'm not trying to make it sound easy, because it really isn't. And I still have my days where I just want everyone to leave me alone, and I just don't want to talk to anyone.
    For years and years I've been wondering why my attitude was such a problem, and ultimately, what I am doing to make me have this attitude at times?
    But I think its because I just simply choose to have a bad attitude.
    So now, when I feel a bad attitude coming on, I try to think over and over, "Aaliyah. CHOOSE a joyful attitude." its not that easy and its not like flipping a light switch, I mean come on, we are human. and like I said, I still have my days, but you CAN have joy. It is possible.
    Having joy is a blessing.
    I feel so good lately. looking back to just a few weeks ago, I never want to go back to that.
    So like I said in the beginning of this post, joy is so much more than that description.
    Joy is a perfect gift from God. He wants for you to receive that gift.
    I hope to further increase my joy but for now I am so happy I finally know I little piece of what that is.


  1. You are so right, Ali. It's a choice we have to make, even if we do so forcefully. Sometimes, you have to push yourself around, for the greater good.
