Pockets of Joy
“You have to create little pockets of joy in your life to take care of yourself.” – Jonathan Van Ness
My roommates and “life coaches” Abby and Sasha remind me daily to lighten up;
To have fun;
To be silly;
To work (chase ball) with vigor and focus;
And when done, to leave it and move on to what’s next with rapt attention;
Amidst the duties of the day, the long checklists and chasing, invite and allow frolic, laughter and folly to create pockets of joy to lift, expand and sustain.
All within reach and available.
Be swept away in ordinary delight.
“Never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun.” – Randy Pausch
