Many people tell me they want to have joy in their lives but it seems to elude them. These people seem to think that joy is something that finds them. But instead of waiting for joy to happen, you can choose to live each day with gladness in your heart. Yes you can! Stop agonizing over what you don’t have and begin to be joyful in what you already have. That’s a start! You certainly don’t need to have a perfect life before you can have joy. And if that’s still too difficult, perhaps you can consider wearing one of these handmade fashion accessories to remind you to choose joy.
These are a combination of accessories picked from Etsy, the online venue for all things handmade and they are all of unique designs. Prices start from US$25 onwards.

Okay, I need to qualify that joy is really more of an inner attitude and so it does not matter what you wear or do not wear. But I like the idea of wearing an accessory that reminds me of something positive. Plus if wearing one of these causes someone else to choose joy, I’ll say that’s surely something of a good cause.
