The Purpose of Choosing Joy

I would say that I have a messy spirit. Somedays I really feel like I shine as a human and then other days I feel like I have a big cloud hanging over my head.

This blog is meant to show all aspects of who I am.

The title is meant to encompass my daily struggle. Some days it is really difficult to look on the bright side of things. Choosing joy is much different than choosing to be happy. Happiness is temporary. Happiness comes from earthly things and I am daily trying to look beyond this life.

I want people to know that there is someone else out there who is making mistakes on the regular. I want people to know that there is no shame in being a mess and not being great at everything other people are great at.

I don’t want to live in the cloud of comparison and I think that is one reason why I write this blog. I am trying to present the real Sarah so that when people read these pages they feel like I am being real and I am not just sharing the best parts of myself.

I struggle with comparing myself to nearly everyone and I feel like God has led me to stop. He is leading me currently to accept help but to also not be ashamed of my imperfections. He is also teaching me that it is OK to learn how to do things. You can’t be an expert from the get go.

Anyway, I hope I accomplish my purpose in writing this blog. I hope somewhere along the way someone feels encouraged or at least able to laugh at a mistake knowing that they are not the only one out there who isn’t perfect.
