Stay on the Path – Keep your Joy.

happiness-wordleThere are so many people we come across every day, whether at work or when doing our mall shopping that simply look at life through “glowering glasses.”

It happened to my wife and me last weekend. The Manager at the Jewelers shop from the moment we arrived looked as though she had the singular task to make customers unhappy. And you know what?  She succeeded and what’s more she makes all her co-workers unhappy. They told us!

As Joel Osteen says “don’t let other people take your joy away.”

Too many people want to do that and when you think of what that does to you just pause and remind yourself, when that happens you feel you are lesser for it and will often be upset with yourself for the rest of the day.

We were given the gift of a brain and the ability to make choices.

Each day we have the choice to be happy or to be sad, to have faith in what happens or be scared. To be positive with others no matter what happens.

The choices we make define who we are and how others see us.

We as humans attract other similar minded people.

Which group do we want to be “branded” with?

We have the choice to be known alongside positive minded people and be known for what we can do rather than we cannot do. – Picture Courtesy of:

  1. Peter,
    Great “Blog” today! Joel Osteen has been a real inspiration in life. Raised with Jewish parents that did not go to Temple, I then married and my wife and I gave our life to Jesus. While I enjoy the teachings of Pastors like Chuck Smith, Raul Reese, Greg Laurie and such, Joel has a very positive way (backed by scripture) to encourage us. Thank you again for today’s Blog!

  2. I am totally with you on this topic Peter. I always wonder how people like that manager keep their job. What could the business owner possibly be thinking? Happy Monday to you 🙂

  3. Very positive graphic. That’s always a good thing — especially on a Monday

I've decided to pursue my passion in jewellery designs since I love femininity and all things beautiful and sparkly, well almost all. I'm a proud mother to two gorgeous and amazing girls. I recently left the corporate world, went through a tragic loss and relationship breakdown yet I'm here alive and still very much wanting to pursue my dreams and maintain a state of happiness. This site opens up a new world for me to share and if I'm really privileged connect with with others.
