Share the Joy: Kickin' Back

I don't know what's gonna come out today.
I've been just hanging out.

Meandering.

Going to my favorite theater.

Sitting in silence as part of the writing ritual.

All part of cultivating joy.

Opening

Yes.
I love the unveiling of the mystery.




The welcoming a new phase.
Expansion. Settling into the silence.



Knowing what's next will arrive at exactly the right time.




I just have to open to receive.






Signs from the Universe

If what we notice in the world around us


is a sign from the Universe

pushing us in the direction of greater love


more joy

soul perfection


what, specifically, is the Universe trying to say?

Share the Joy: Fruit Cocktail

One thing I've learned about cultivating JoY is that when you start looking for it, it shows up everywhere.
In the weirdest places. In unbelievable forms and shapes.
Like this guy. . . . found in an antique store in Thorp, Washington.


It's a kitschy pitcher.  
Trying saying that fast 5 times. I dare you. I bet you can't do it without laughing. And letting the JoY leak in.
The crazy pitcher made me laugh out loud. If I hadn't been in a "paring down, simplify" phase of my life, I absolutely positively would have brought him home with me. Simply for the smiles he'd evoke.
(Instead, I bought a beautiful embroidered handkerchief to add to my stash of beautiful nose wipes.)

True Words Tuesday: Summer's Almost Here

Image
Now that summer's almost herem the roses are blooming, hummingbirds are engaging in winged acrobatics, it's time...


You know you want to.
Take a break and soak in amazement at the beauty all around you.

My World Monday

Image
I know I drive some people mad because I rarely have my mobile phone turned on. . .  but I don't see any reason to always be at someone's beck and call.
Remember the good old days when you could get a little peace and quiet by leaving the house and venturing beyond the ring of the phone (and telemarketers).
If I'm meeting someone and worry they'll need to call me to say "I'll be late by about 5 minutes" or "I got us a table in the back by the windows" then I try to remember to turn the darn thing on (if the battery isn't dead).
But it makes a dandy portable camera.


Share the Joy: A Peek at Summer

Image
Are you taking time to notice moments of joy - to cultivate your capacity for wonder and exuberance and  feeling an influx of pleasure so sweet it might bring tears of JoY to your eyes?
My joy this week comes from

blue skies, puffy clouds  that move across the sky like polka dots, and warm temps


Finding sunflowers in buckets
at the market


Seeing these roses blooming in the lower garden
(I hope I left the tag on the bush
because I don't remember what they're called)

and finding out I passed my coaching written exam
with flying colors.
