What is Joy? ⟡ A Snowy Winter's Tale in The Netherlands☃️❄️⛸

What is joy? Join Timo and I in the cozy snowy winter days, as we explore finding joy in the every day together.❤️

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

Having grown up in Japan, I I grew up believing that working hard was the key to happiness. Although having discipline and consistency is a strength, too strict of a work ethic can also be a double edged sword. In the past, overwork had even led me to burn out symptoms and injuries. 🥀

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

Working with a psychologist has helped me to allow myself the gift of truly enjoying the journey of life itself, instead of focusing obsessively on the outcome.🌿

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

I realized, that my true worth can only come from being in relationship with my Creator, and not from having to prove my worth through what I do.🙏🏼

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

God’s love has freed me from my unhealthy need for work. My life mission has gained a breath of life, through embodying the beauty of God's heart through my life and creativity.🎼🎨

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

By letting go of control and trusting God to guide me in my next steps, I’ve discovered a new sense of surrender and peace in my every day.🌱

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

I’m excited to be sharing my story & my moments of joy with you, weaved into the beautiful moments we had during the snow days♡

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

…What are YOUR small moments of joy? Would love to hear in the comments below!👇🏼💖

Sending you a big hug from The Netherlands!🇳🇱❤️
