She's one of a kind! Miss Independent and not afraid of anything, including climbing much higher than her Mama would like at this point!
She's not as verbal as her sister, but definitely just as loud. Maybe a little more observant of the details of life while her sister observes people. But quick to hug Mama when she's sad.
Joy, as opposed to Happiness, is a state of mind not dependent on circumstances. To have the motto, "I Choose Joy", is something I wish for and have not come close to attaining. I'm not an optimistic person by nature so it's hard work for me. But to have to choose something, to make it intentional, makes it so much better when you finally do accomplish it, even a little bit.
It's not related to circumstances, but for me, it's hard to do in isolation. I get too caught up in my own mind and tunnel down until everything is dark. Just having a simple "meaningless" conversation can help bring me back.
How do you "choose joy" in your life?
And I hope my Miss Independent lives up to her name without too much trouble!
