22-206 Delightful

Today’s Mandala

“Truth is so rare
that it is delightful to tell it.”

— Emily Dickinson

“Have regular hours for work and play;
make each day both useful and pleasant,
and prove that you understand
the worth of time
by employing it well.
Then youth will be delightful,
old age will bring few regrets,
and life will become
a beautiful success.”

— Louisa May Alcott

The most delightful surprise in life
is to suddenly recognise
your own worth.

— Maxwell Maltz

Today’s MotD encourages us to merrily roll along in a delightful state of mind as often as possible. Yes, ”stuff” happens, ”life” happens, and yet we always have the opportunity to find delight (the light) in any given moment and within ourselves.

Currently (July 2022) we’re experiencing a heat wave. While in and of itself can be seen as -not- delightful, walking into an air-conditioned building is _quite_ delightful. And how amazing (delightful at times) is it to step outside and feel the heat radiating from an almost perfect ball of hot plasma almost 93 billion miles away.

Some days are easier than others to be delighted and delightful. Know that the more we recognize and acknowledge the delightfulness to be found all around us, the more we experience it, inside and out. And when we are filled with this delightfulness, we spread it like confetti every where we go.

To embrace this, we can start each day be asking ourselves the question: ”In what ways can I be delighted and delightful today?”
