Find Joy?

One holiday season we were moping through the flu.  Ever feel bad when the world looks cheery and bright?   Feels like it’s all a lie, it’s not true.
Because you’re not there.  You’re in the mope ditch.  It’s only human.  The vibration of mope.  “You’d better not pout” makes you want to slap somebody, if only you had the strength.

So there we were, wallowing.
Oh, was it hard to dredge up any gratitude.  But at least we had a roof over our head.  At least we had chicken soup.  With garlic and salsa.

Then.  Our doorbell rang.
Fifty casual Korean-Americans crowded our front yard.  Singing!  With two guitars!  They must have come from the Korean church around the corner.
They blew us away with harmony.
They gifted us a handmade ornament.

Always be Joyful.
That’s a tall order.  But it’s a real key, spoken by sages — attributed to King David, St. Paul, Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, Abraham-Hicks, and countless others.
Reach for appreciation.
Reach for a better-feeling thought.
Reach for expansion, instead of contraction.

May your days be Merry  😉

Happy Key: Skilled Attention
Prevent Flu and Colds
