Delights of the Day (for the week)

As I go through my day, I watch for moments when the corners of mouth turn up and my heart lifts. I note these moments of delight, capture them in my Journal and log them here. I encourage you to be on the lookout for your Delight of the Day.

I began this week uncomfortably overcommitted. I felt like people were expecting more of me than I could deliver. I was stressed and rushed.I had some honest conversations and re-negotiated expectations. It wasn’t easy, but after each step toward clarity, I felt better.

To call such clumsy steps “delight” seems  a stretch, but my  lightness of being today is surely a delight over a week ago when, in my delight Journal, I wrote “rarrgh” because I simply couldn’t do better.

** rarrgh

** Worked on one of the projects due and felt satisfaction with progress.

** First difficult conversation and a glimmer of hope.

** Received a an email from Australia  about an event at my church. I love the global reach of the Internet!

** My credit card was canceled due to the Target security breach. Finally received my new card and was able to return to making promised donation payments. (More return to integrity!)

** With renegotiated commitments, I moved through my day much more gently.

** Snowstorm brings beauty – the view from here…

May you find delight each day
