Being happy.

Being happy….

Is it as easy as just willing yourself to feel happy?

If you tell yourself you’re happy over and over, just that make it true?

It’s been so strange this year. I know we have all been feeling it; no one is immune. 2020 has been hard. Most days, I don’t know how I feel about anything. Some days, I’m just numb.

But, lately, things have changed. I have made a choice to be happy. I have decided that I need to find more joy and to focus on the good things.

Today, on my run, when the sun came through the trees, I felt a lightness in my heart. My heart was on fire with joy. I can’t explain it. But, it was real. I had to stop for a moment, just to take it in.

It has been such a long time since I have felt what I can actually call “joy”, that I wanted to stop and fully embrace it.

I know the trails are my therapy, and for that, I am grateful. I do hope that you all have something that you can turn to that helps you get through to the other side of your dark patches.

I do believe that God wants us all to be happy.

Spend some time finding your joy today.

Run happy.

Run long.
