I’m in Nashville. It’s snowing !!! Its been a long time since I’ve seen snow falling. It is so light and wonderful. It makes me feel like a kid, just watching it come down. JOY – that is the feeling. What brings you JOY? When is the last time you felt it?
Find time today in quiet meditation. Allow yourself to recall a time in your life when you felt JOY. Picture it. . . how old were you? . . . . Look around, where are you? . . . . . what are you doing? Smile . . . .let the feelings rise to the surface. Be gentle, letting the feelings come up without force. Take your time. When you are feeling JOY, breath it in. . . . and out. Simmer in it for at long as you wish. Knowing that you have as much a right to feel joy, as anyone.
Now that you have found, and touched, JOY, you can find it again. . . . and again. Make joy your friend, invite it in, often.
