Reasons why you should choose joy over everything else:

Well first of all, why wouldn't you want to be happy?

 Choose joy to be the best version of yourself.

I choose joy because why wouldn't you? It seems obvious but lately with all the stress of looming internships, schoolwork and  approaching finals, I can feel myself getting caught up in all this nonsense. I say "nonsense" because what's the point of doing something if you aren't enjoying it. I question why people put so much pressure on themselves when they are miserable throughout the process. Is the outcome really worth it?

There will always be times in your life when you don't have the option to choose, but why let it drive your mood?  Is it really worth it? What is truly worth risking your happiness?

Why do something if it doesn't bring you joy?

I tend to take life pretty seriously, however recently I have been thinking a lot about how my actions affect my mood, especially my happiness. This is something I am really trying to work on. I am choosing joy because I want to live a more positive life.

I challenge you to choose joy.

Thoughts?
