Here is what I have taken delight in this week…
“Let Bliss Be Your Guide.” My morning meditation one day was this. How brilliantly simple! I have had this phrase on repeat in my brain this week and I hope it continues to light my life. If you let bliss be your guide, you are headed in the right direction. I am going to let bliss be my guide in St. Lucia too (don’t worry, I will have pics for you when I return.) Perhaps the beauty of the island can evoke some bliss in your life too.
Airports. Some people hate airports and everything about them. I, on the other hand, love them. I love airports because 1) it means I am traveling somewhere and boy do I love to travel, 2) it makes for really good people watching, and 3) I am reminded how important it is to find joy and patience in waiting for something (in this case, my flight). I get to drink a hot tea while reading a good magazine or having a fun conversation with someone. I get to just be.
Having a blogger mentor. I think it is good to have role models and mentors throughout your life. I definitely have dietitians and health professionals that I look up to. I had an outstanding first job mentor when I worked at Shell. And now I get to experience the mentoring relationship in the blogger world. I am very excited about this opportunity to work with Taylor and hope to learn a ton! Heck, I already have learned a ton just by reading her blog. Check her out at Pink Heels, Pink Truck.
The library. Are you a member of your local library? If not, why? Call me old school, but I am loving my local library these days. I can download books for free to check out on my Kindle (for 2 weeks unless you renew), can check out audio books to play in the car when on a long drive, and can rent Downton Abbey. I have been hearing about this show for months. I am finally going to watch Season 1. I am non-committal when it comes to books so I love having the ability to check something out for free, read a little, and then decide if it is worth it for me to purchase or read once and be done. Just like you did when you were a kid, get your library card!
Your turn. What brought you delight this week?
