Why joy should be your main priority.
Updated: Apr 14
Stop! There is no where to go and nothing to do, but there is everything to be.
The magnificent journey of life is solely yours – what would you like to make of it today? It’s a known fact that positive people are less likely to get sick and are overall physically healthier than those who hold a negative view of life.
I keep hearing Esther Hicks voice in my head, “Your life and everyone else in the Universe is playing the part that you have assigned to them. You can literally script any life that you desire, and the Universe will deliver to you the people, places, and events just as you decide them to be. For you are the creator of your own experience-you have only to decide it and allow it to be.” Each day I wake I know I am responsible for my own peace of mind. I am also responsible for setting up a life that teaches my kids how to see themselves as their own greatest resource. It is my strongest hope that we all stop looking at outside sources for a sense of achievement or well-being. We all hold within ourselves the power to be all that we wish. Over the years I have learned from Esther that “If we knew our potential to feel good, we would ask no one to be different so that we can feel good. We would free ourself of all of that cumbersome impossibility of needing to control the world, or control our mate, or control our children. We are the only one who creates our reality. For no one else can think for you, no one else can do it. It is only you, every bit of it you.”

Learning to truly love yourself changes your relationship with everyone. –Bryant McGill
While it does, and should, feel good to be appreciated by another person, if you are dependent upon their appreciation to feel good, you will not be able to consistently feel good, because no other person has the ability, or a responsibility, to hold you as their singular, positive object of attention. Your Inner Being, however, the Source within you, always holds you, with no exceptions, as a constant object of appreciation. So if you will tune your thoughts and actions to that consistent Vibration of Well-Being flowing forth from your Inner Being—you will thrive under any and all conditions. ― Esther Hicks
