Now, there’s a fabulous card to pull for the coming conference. Joy, happiness, dancing, gratitude, shining like the sun. My roommate Julie Cuccia-Watts just pulled this card for me and I thank her for it! It’s an especially good omen for both of us, don’t you think?
One of the things I noticed while I was in Maine was how happy I felt. It was mostly due to being around the kids, especially Gracie. Nothing like spending time with your grandchild to have your heart open wide like a sunflower, turning its head toward the sun. Time slowed down, too. Everything revolved around Gracie’s schedule and there were hours when there was nothing to do but go for walks, read books, play with crayons. I felt so blessed and grateful to have that time away from my usual packed schedule. A clue to happiness: living a slow, mindful life. I’d like to bring more of that back into my life when I get home.
The more I meditate on the Sun card, the more I think its message for us is to really consider the source of our happiness. What truly makes you happy? What brings you joy? How can you incorporate more of it into your life this week?
I always look forward to hearing what you have to say, dear readers.
