If you & I sat across from each other at a coffee shop one day & I could only say one sentence to you, this is what I’d say:

You are beautiful, & you were created for Joy.

Do you believe those words? When you look in the mirror, do you see beauty? Do you see value in your life? Do you see Joy in your eyes & see the purpose in your soul?

What if I told you you were born to be a ray of light in this world? That you—yes, YOU—matter big. You were born with gifts, passions, & dreams tucked away in your soul like gemstones, & you get to spend your life uncovering them, dusting them off, shining them bright for the world to see.

You are an amazing human being, & I’m here to remind you of that. I’m here to remind you that no matter what is going on in your world, you have the power to reach for Joy & be Joy.

Maybe a banana bread recipe that has you saying YUM out loud in between bites. Maybe a YouTube video to kick start your day. Maybe sharing a favorite book or podcast. All good things to make your day brighter. Ever Monday morning straight to your inbox.

"For those who resonate with formulas, here it is: add your whole life, your loves, your passions, and your interests together with what God said He wants us to be about, and that's your answer."  -Bob Goff
