Joy To The World
Joy to you and me now
My therapist was more like a teacher. She was spiritual, metaphysical, insightful, and real. I was 26 years old and sitting in her office feeling lost, anxious, and alone.
"It's not an accident your name is Joy", she said. I’ll never forget her words because they changed the direction of my life, forever.
I was just trying to survive. I was anxious, scared, and full of self-doubt. I'd gotten sober two years earlier but I was far from happy or free. and there she was telling me that I was actually meant to experience joy.
And for some reason, on that day, sitting there with my therapist, her words struck my heart. They put a crack in the tough armor I'd built around it.
For the last two decades, I've put one foot in front of the other. One small step at a time I've made it to the other side of all that pain, to the light. I found a way out of all the darkness, emptiness, anxiety and fear, and discovered a place within myself that is calm, confident, and joyful.
I faced my fears. I forgave others. I faced my own mistakes. I changed the patterns and beliefs that were causing me to suffer.
What if you knew, in the core of your soul, that you were about to embark on a journey that would end your struggles with anxiety and self-doubt for good?
However you're feeling right now, and whatever you're facing, I want you to know that you are not alone. I want you to know that you too are here to experience your joy. I've found it. My clients have too. And so can too.
JOY to the world. JOY to you and me, now.
