  1. “The foundation of choosing joy lies in the belief that I am worthy of receiving it.”

    This was a complete and entire word! Thank you Ms. Alisha for the confirmation that my experience of joy begins with the belief and remembrance that I am worthy of it! You eloquently shared much of my own experience and path to now being #coveredinjoy.
    This is my choice, this is my intention and so it is! 🙌🏾☺️🙏🏾

  2. Thank you for this beautiful message! I truly believe that the joy of the Lord is my strength. I choose my attitude, which is joy, daily! I give thanks to Don Miguel Ruiz for writing The Four Agreements because it gave me permission to divorce the other Agreements I made that tied me to past hurts. Today is the present and I choose to live in joy! Praise God!!

  3. I’m working on knowing that my Heavenly Father is the glue that holds me together. Change of my attitude to gratitude…I can do all things through the one who strengthens me. Philip 4:13.

  4. Thank you for sharing and reaffirming that Joy can be found in the mist of Struggle. Also Joy is a state of being. Your manifestation plan is an amazing map for embarking on your journey to choose Joy.

  5. This was so inspiring to me as I navigate through my cancer treatment and severe depression and anxiety. Thank you so much!
