#YearofHappy: Sending Love to Myself

Year of happy

I happen to stumble upon Kriselle’s (of Livin and Lovin) post about a link-up called #YearofHappy, hosted by Lizzie of OctoberJune and Allison of AllisonLeighann.

Every month, they will post a new prompt to inspire happiness and optimism within the participating people, and even just readers and followers. I was inspired by the concept since being more happy and positive is included in my 2015 goals. So ride along, live your life to the fullest and be your brightest self this year. Who knows, you might just encourage and inspire someone who is battling with sadness or depression, as they say, happiness is contagious. 🙂

It maybe a little late, but better late than never. So, what is January’s prompt? Write a love letter to yourself.


Dear Joy,

2015 is going to be a great year for you, your family and loves with so many things to look forward to. Way to go, you have finally come back to blogging like the old times, I knew this is what you always wanted. You’re expecting breakthroughs from God, you’re seeking Him for more major life decisions and you’re pursuing your many hidden passions, I know you can do it. Don’t ever think you cannot, you’re blessed and you have what it takes. Whenever you hear voices inside your head that say, “you cannot do it”, say “I can for I am strengthened by God and I am more than a conqueror in Christ”.

Do not be afraid of what other people think and will say to you. After all, in everything you do, there will always be people who will try to discourage you, criticize you, judge you and put you down. There’s no one who knows yourself better than you do, so you go girl!  Live out your life and stop existing. Live it to the fullest.

Don’t be afraid to try and of failing. Just do it and you will learn and feel glad to know that one day you will look back and say, “I have done that and I have no regrets.”

Don’t be afraid to open up yourself, it’s time. Isn’t that the purpose of this blog? Share your ideas, share your blessings, share your life to others, God may use it to encourage other people.

Stop worrying, for once, you have had so much of that in the previous year. It’s time to let go of your fears, doubts and worries. Leave everything up to God, seek Him always and everything will be taken care of in His hands even if you don’t feel it. 😉

Stop comparing yourself to others, you are wonderfully made and you are unique as you are, you have a special purpose, there’s no one who can live your life and your purpose better than you. Be the person God intended you to be. Be YOU!

Do not try to please men, you will only fail. Stop trying to live by people’s standards and expectations. It’s okay don’t stress yourself out.

You are passionate and strong, live your life to the fullest, let go of those fears and be limitless, don’t let other people bring you down. And one more thing, your thoughts, do not let them hinder you from becoming who God intended you to be. You have so much more potential than you think you have.

Everything will be okay. 😉

Open the jar and live it up girl!

Much Love,
