I think I missed some of the underlying things from this thread but it has made me think about the context of 'it’s a glorious, I should be able to enjoy it'. There are days when million dollar views won’t help. There are dreary days when I get caught up in a moment in nature unintentionally. Those are the moments of internal peace and that is a good place for me. I’ve actually thought about this a bit since it was posted. I don’t think we can plan joy. I think it happens in the enexpected and unplanned moments. I think sometimes the joy is not in the moment itself but upon reflecting on a moment.
Sometimes joy comes from a forum friend calling coooee across the forum @Appleblossom 😘
