Delight Catching

We are surrounded by little miracles, yet sometimes we are unable to notice because we are lost in our own worry worlds.  We are lost in what someone has said, what we have not said or said, what is unfair, what is not right, what is not done, and so on.  We are lost in ‘me-ing’.  Me-ing is a ticket to misery.  Me-ing causes delight-blindness.

‘What is outwardly lost must be inwardly gained.’

Sometimes when we experience failure or pain, we feel that it is not right, almost as if we expect our lives not to present any difficulties, as if we should just slip through life, all smooth sailing, experiencing only pleasant and wonderful things.  A bit like a good ad for soap or Ralph Lauren or some ‘many followers’ influencer. 

Are you worried that thoughts and relationship challenges will fester and pester your Christmas?

No other time of the year has the potential to create a stronger collision between our expectations and reality than Christmas.  This gap brings with it a race to breach the gap.  We feel stress as we rush around and work hard not only to finish work for the year but also to have all the right presents and all the food prepared while navigating at times complicated family dynamics.
