“It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.” – Laura Ingalls Wilder
Anchor to hope, not circumstances. Assume the best in others and be proven wrong on occasion. Find the blessings in the burdens.
Joy is available in all seasons and cycles. It’s a constant. Our most important job is to find it daily in plain sight, lurking, longing to be found. Let joy sneak up on you.
Joy can be found in the silly, in mischief, in frolicking, in prayer, in laughter, in nature, in an embrace, in flowers, in a smile, in music, in art, in literature, in play, in gratitude, in dogs, even in some people (make sure you’re one of them), in simple encounters.
Double count blessings, multiply joy. Abundance and light with a shift in attention, focus and intention.
“Play is the highest form of research.” – Einstein
Get out of your head into your imagination. The journey is what you make it so settle only for sweet, simple joy.
“Live out of your imagination, not your history.” – Stephen Covey
