|Life: An Evolving Adventure||
On this special day when people are thinking about love -- romantic love, unselfish giving, cards & cupcakes & chocolates --take a moment to ponder what brings you joy. We are often so distracted by our busy schedules, our immediate "must do" list, those who depend upon us, the noise of life which is especially amplified in this electronic age of the Internet, that we let days or even weeks slip by without checking in to our own quota of joy. I read a recent article on the subject of deep happiness and it reflected the idea that doing something to inspire your creative spirit, to focus your attention in the NOW by creating something, is a great way to bring deep, abiding happiness to your life. Anyone who has ever experienced that deep sense of concentration and intention that blend into an act of creative pursuit -- be it making a piece of art or a homemade Valentine -- can attest to the fact that it slows the perception of time and makes a quiet little pocket of happiness (stimulating endorphins in the brain chemistry) in the center of life. My wish for each soul on Valentine's Day is that you can create a moment of deep, abiding happiness and share it with another who needs it!
I am a singer, a writer, a craftswoman, a student of life and of Spirit, a wife, a friend, an inquisitive adventurer on the learning path. Seeking, sensing, sifting and now connecting! Please join the fun by leaving a comment or passing on a favorite post via your social network. As you can tell from the category list, my interests are varied and somewhat eclectic. I am seeking all that brings joy & excitement to life, purpose & passion to our daily round. I am curious about pretty much everything.
