Do you ever feel like your 'bad day' is every day?  Do you find it hard to find your joy again?  It seems like that's become the norm.  But it doesn't have to be. focuses on the positive, encouraging, and joyful.  There comes a time when we need to release the things weighing us down to God and take our joy back.  It doesn't take the significance or meaning away from what burdened us by doing so, but it releases us to continue living the life we were given and experience God's many blessings He has in store for us.  Our time here is short, and He meant for us to enjoy it.  So, let's reprogram our mindsets to focus on the good, be thankful, and see how we can bless others.  Then we'll experience 'real' joy.
