I can be a source of joyful surprise for someone today by forgetting my needs and looking out for only their needs. I can really listen to them when they speak to me by putting down the phone, turning off the tv, or setting the book down, whatever I am engaged in is not as important as paying attention to what the other needs to say to me.
Today… as I step out the front door
Arms spread wide and looking to the sky
Create the intention to…
Be infinitely less of a Man…
Be infinitely more of a Man…
Completely embrace this mystery and grandeur…
And at the end of this day that has no beginning nor end…
Be the best, the greatest, the one and only!
By bringing some ice cream for my daughter. That might be a source of joy for me too, because it is hot in the city
may I be mindful of seeking the treasure
Well, I certainly am full of surprises but joyful, hmm, that’s a little unusual. Let’s start with some comedy, I grew up in Hawaii which has probably some of the most goofy and sweet people in the states … that also sometimes like to get into random physical altercations which are like them, very goofy haha. This local comedian captures the essence well: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CeR6kswA8Km/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
It’s odd because I don’t know if I’m that intentional in thinking, oh I’m going to be this particular thing in someone else’s life … not sure if that is a good or bad or neutral thing? Maybe a mix dependent on the perspective.
I think I can be joyful in other people’s lives because I’m unique, people are not always ready to full appreciate uniqueness when they encounter it but it is a reminder to them that they can inhabit more a space of what is true for them and don’t have to fit with everyone else on every issue.
The granddaughters’ nanny could find her next job when she comes over this afternoon for me to use my computer to help her search 🙂 – but I’m not holding my breath 😐
There’s planning for it. Then there’s the accidental discovery of what makes someone laugh, like this baby and a particular word: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOpNAHk0wZI&ab_channel=WaggleTV.. Enjoy the giggles!
Today I will refrain from showing or discussing with my son, girlfriend, and ex-wife what ails/worries me. Today, I will be present with them and make our interactions about them, and not me.
I made a lovely lunch for my boys today ! Love those sweethearts!
I will send a good friend a greeting card. Yep! She will love it…..
Today I believe that by being positive and focusing on the brighter side of things, I will encourage others or at least one other person to open their mind and embrace all that is good instead of focusing on negatives. By having this way of thinking, I believe we will start to build on our gratefulness for all the positives already in our lives. What surprise could be more joyful, than that of a positive outlook!
By being open and available to the moment. And by not fighting the flow. I try to be open to, and seek joy every day, but right now, it’s no surprise that I need a joyful cup of coffee.
Go, Team Coffee! I’m also a member of the CaffeiNation.
I can offer presence, kindness and respect, but I can’t control how any of that is received. Maybe my behavior is noticed and appreciated, maybe it’s not.
By phoning my step mom who is alone. By supporting my wife through her difficulties , bringing her a hot chocolate instead of a herbal tea during her break.
