Posting from Paradise
A second line from the book that moved me is " Beware. Feeling blue is never an excuse for passing on a chance to feel joy."
A lot of things in my life lately have been dogging me, getting me down and I've allowed them to make me feel the 'blues'. I have ignored amazing sunsets, wonderous mornings, intoxicating aromas and the companionship of those who love me. I believed that I had to work through this time and figure it out for myself...and, in my stoicism, I neglected joy!
I have worked through some of this and am taking a fresh look. My joy is my family, my friends, and this beautiful place in which I live. I have missed this but no more...JOY!
