For several years, I’ve been practicing what I call The Delight of the Day. Each day I watch for moments that inspire a strong feeling of gratitude and joy within me. I mentally label the strongest such moment The Delight of the Day. The practice encourages what psychologists call “positive scanning.” I’m waiting for good things to happen and, when they do, I notice and celebrate them.
If there is a theme for my week, it has been “connections with people I love.” What a great theme!
Here are my Delights for this week:
My friend Bonnie Fournier makes the world a better place through The Smooch! Project. My family ate tasty Indian food and then posed in several different smoochy combinations. Fun to do and someday we will have photos to help us relive the love.
I realized I am at a Big Beginning. I was invited into Circe’s Circle, a coaching group facilitated by Jamie Ridler, of whom I am a fan. Beginnings are spacious and scary and unreal. I want to let the feelings be as they are and watch them evolve.
Melissa Dinwiddie’s Creative Sandbox 101 Ruzuku class kept me painting and encouraged me to play.
May you find delight in each day.
