Check Your Joy Stick

Two friends

Hey, we are back to help you put smiles, like ours, on your faces. We love life and try to keep more positive thoughts running through our hearts and minds. The only other kind of thoughts are filled with negativity. These thoughts are self-induced and you do not get the full potential of life. Your thoughts are your actions. If you think on the down side of life, your actions become sluggish and irritating to yourself and others. Replace these actions with positive thoughts and you’ll see a change in your life and others.

Life is not just part of you, life is created by your actions and responses. When you share your joy of life, more joy will come back to you. Some live for the life of pleasure, and this gets you into trouble. Pleasure is a fleeting avenue. You feel great for a while, but it doesn’t last. Then you’ll need more and more of pleasure to get your ego stroked and this becomes self-gratification.

Happiness is an inner contentment.You cannot get happy, but you can be happy. Sure, life throws a lot of ‘stuff’ at you. Only you can make the affirmative decisions to choose how to deal with this. Manage your thoughts and emotions, and you will notice a difference in your health. Take good care of yourself with a lot of practice, practice, and more practice. This comes by learning to love and accept yourself as you continue to practice being a better you.

Look at exercise. When we exercise, we gather feelings of euphoria, which come from the release of endorphins. These contribute positive feelings through our body and mind, which can improve anxiety, stress, fatigue, anger, and self-doubt. Remember you are only a workout away from healthy mind.

Now, is the time to ‘Check Your Joy Stick.’ Get inspired with your positive thoughts and forget the should have’s and the what if’s. Check your life for connectedness, peace, love, self-respect and laughter. Do not forget laughter. Look at us. We would not win a beauty contest on the outside, but we would give you a run for your money for the inside contest. When you are happy, these smiles you make and give away, are making you beautiful from the inside out.

AND – never forget if you want to be happy, you have this power inside you. Keep your Joy Stick on the full level. Do things for others, take a long walk, get a good workout, and always smile. A smile costs nothing, but gives happiness to others.

Look at our picture, and smile with us.
