twinkle

“Twinkle lights are the perfect metaphor for joy. Joy is not a constant. It comes to us in moments – often ordinary moments.

Sometimes we miss out on the bursts of joy because we’re too busy chasing down extraordinary moments. Other times we’re so afraid of the dark that we don’t dare let ourselves enjoy the light.

A joyful life is not a floodlight of joy. That would eventually become unbearable.

I believe a joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together by trust, gratitude, inspiration, and faith.”

~ BrenΓ© Brown

What a lovely reminder to find some twinkle today ✨

  3. This is so beautiful. I quote Brene Brown a lot in my own work. She has so many thoughtful truths to share. In addition, I love the focus of your blog. I also write a lot about the “middle path.” It is a hard road to accept both the joys and sorrows of life with gratitude. Thank you for sharing.

  10. Had a moment of synchronicity with your post Val. I was standing in the kitchen and just had a sudden wonderful feeling of joy. It just came, out of the blue. About fifteen minutes later I sat down, opened my computer, and read your post. What you describe is precisely my experience. I’ve had many moments like that.

  18. Val I just purchased some xmas lights that are battery powered as my daughter and I are off to a Taylor Swift concert and I remember the last time we went to her concert everyone had xmas lights blinking on and off and it really felt like christmas was coming. So I agree and sparkle on my friend.
