Thinking more on joy this morning, it struck me: its all the little choices in a day that add up to our disposition and ultimately our happiness, our joy and our success.
I remembered a passage from an essay I wrote about the tsunami relief travels I made with some intrepid surfers to the most isolated and devastated Islands off the west coast of Sumatra:
“For them, everything changed in an instant and yet nothing had. They had clung to their happiness or rather their happiness had clung to them. For the rest of us, life has a way of bending us into shapes we no longer recognize, one small, seemingly uneventful moment at a time. Like the ticking of a clock that lulls us into a feeling of constancy, how imperceptibly the time passes.”
Then I opened up my email to another Abraham Hicks quote:
… it’s just a series of little things. It is the, “I could choose this thought which feels good, or this thought which doesn’t feel so good but I’ve developed a pattern for what doesn’t feel good. And so, it is the daily dose of not being in the receiving mode that keeps me not in the receiving mode.” And that’s all that it is!
Now I’m not sure, “that’s all that it is,” but I know this; my worrying about something has never once changed the outcome in a positive way. So today, I am choosing to delight in the good and not worry about the bad….
Oops. Got to go. My man just woke up and exclaimed, “Crap! It’s a beautiful sunny day.” hmm. Interesting choice…..
