YOUR LIFE A-Z: REJOICE
“REJOICE and love yourself today, ‘cause baby you were born this way.” Lady Gaga’s lyrics to the song Born This Way are quite powerful and if you allow yourself to close our eyes and listen a sense of hope is birthed. The word REJOICE is an action verb that promotes an inner response of “yes.” REJOICE implies that you exclaim, shout, dance, and proclaim out loud an inner delight and exuberance. What makes you REJOICE? What makes you SING? What make you feel alive and want to tell everyone how excited you are to be you in this moment and time? REJOICE is an action response of gratitude. Take a walk through your closet and chose a favorite outfit and REJOICE (do a little jig) that you are blessed enough to have favorite clothes in your closet. REJOICE that you are able to be alive right now in this very moment regardless of how tough it might be in your life, express some gratitude for what “is” verses looking at what isn’t. REJOICE in the small things in life and those small things will become more expansive and important. REJOICE and love yourself today just the way you are, allowing self-acceptance to overflow into your heart and your actions. Choose a symbol that represents who you are and search for a piece of jewelry that expresses your uniqueness in a way that you can delight in. REJOICE is an important word, own it and use it today.
