Joy is the source of beauty, connection, and gratitude.
But to feel joy.
- I risk being blindsided by hurt.
- I risk getting caught off guard with pain.
- Shall I sacrifice joy to feel less pain?
Joy is in the common ordinary things.
- Yesterday the marriage may have ended.
- Tomorrow the cat may die.
- Today that important phone call, may not come.
But just at this moment, just now.
I’m all right.
I’m breathing in and out.
In the exact now, I’m always, all right.
