We Get to Choose Joy

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
Viktor Frankl, from his book, Man’s Search for Meaning

Dear Exchange Community,

Our latest edition of Exchange magazine is a reminder to all of us to CHOOSE joy – even in troubled times. We cannot afford to wait until "things get better" to feel better. As Viktor Frankl wrote about his experience in the Nazi concentration camps, "Everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way."

Holly Elissa Bruno’s book, Happiness is Running Through the Streets to Find Youis a great guide on how to transcend tough times. Best-selling author Mary Pipher, whose wise article about cultivating joy appears in September’s Exchange magazinewrote this about Holly Elissa’s offering: "Bruno’s fine book describes the experience of recovering from trauma and transforming pain into love and joy."

It can be done. We can find joy, no matter what the circumstance. That is our wish for you.
