There’s an idea that when we are children, we laugh more than five times as much as when we’re adults. That, to me, is horribly sad. (The very opposite, of laughing!) Also? It is avoidable.
When we speak of perspective, we mean our observations. But it’s also about attitude. What I was shown this morning felt uncomfortable, and had a personal note to it.
Additionally, though, there was an overlying sense of Hope.
How We Wait
I’m a particularly impatient person (no, like really. Ask anyone I’ve given birth to, or ya know, may have married). Would I like to change this aspect of my personality? Hell, yes! Am I able to? Well, I’m trying.
And, that’s what we need to focus on. The trying. The attempt. The “keep at it” feeling of never-failure.
We’re always succeeding, because we’re making the effort. I’m already better than I was due to my recognition of the situation. Can I do MUCH better? Of course. But simply acknowledging that this is something to work on has moved me along and helped me to heal.
Fortunately, there are methods to apply, tools at our disposal, and assistance everywhere we turn. Our daily draw is a fantastic example.
“Soaring into Joy ~
‘Childlike wonder fills my life.’
Celebrate and live life with glee! Clap your hands in delight! Be madcap and spontaneous! All is truly well.
The Universe wants you to know:
Allow a childlike wonder and joy to fill your entire being. Your happiness makes a difference to others, for as you experience true delight, this radiates out from you like ripples in a still pool and touches the souls of many.
Take time for yourself. Find ways to experience joy in every moment. Even when doing the most mundane, boring, or gritty tasks, look for ways to feel genuine happiness.
If you have trouble finding pleasure in certain situations, start small, and eventually you will soar. To feel joyful is a gift. It rejuvenates you and heals the world.
Questions to ask yourself:
What gives me the greatest pleasure? What might be blocking my joy? What’s the key to experiencing more bliss in my life?
Childlike wonder fills my life.”

is this view from my front porch.
While Dan was in the back yard, grilling cauliflower, ribs, and tater tots, this curious neighbor was milling around. Along side were a flock of turklets*, and a mom turkey. Who nearly got herself stuck on the wrong side of our fence. Good thing my gate guardian was doing their job.
*That may, or may not, be the official name for baby turkeys. I might have made this word up.
