Mini-Post: Watering Myself in the Shower

"May I know how to nourish the seeds of joy within myself every day" -Thich Nhat Hahn from "Teachings on Love"

How can you make others happy and bring them joy if you can't do it for yourself?

This morning I figured out a way to attach speakers to my laptop and run them into my bathroom. For the first time in years, I enjoyed singing in the shower.

I realized I had forgotten the enjoyment of singing. I forgot just how good it makes me feel, how much of a stress relief it is...a simple, easy, pure joy.

I know now that I need to and will spend time each day watering the seeds of joy within me, and within you.

Life is beautiful.
