Where there is joy there is creation. Where there is no joy there is no creation: know the nature of joy.

Positive influence

There are plenty of negative influences in your life. You don’t have to be one of them.

You’re always making choices. Every one of those choices is an opportunity to send your life, your actions, your outcomes, your world, in a more positive direction.

Many factors are beyond your control. And yet, you have significant control over your thoughts, your attitude, your words, actions, and priorities.

Exercise that control in an intentional, beneficial way. Choose to serve as a counterbalance to the negativity you come across.

Be a positive influence in your own life, and in the lives of those around you. Yes, the pull of negativity can be strong and compelling, yet you can be stronger.

Decide to focus your strength in the direction of all you love and care about. Let your light shine through the darkness, and lift your world to a more positive place.
