Of course, certain major life events generate glowy “life is good” kinds of feelings; weddings, births, promotions, and great vacations to name a few, but some days are a more routine sort of good.
Like watching a tiger swallowtail butterfly silently float from flower to flower stopping to drink deeply from the bloom of each. Ordinary; and good.
Like watching my year old grandson embrace each day with endless curiosity, astonishing energy and ready smiles. Really, really good.
Like the days that play out with just the right balance between work and play, contemplative quite and stimulating interaction, physical activity and mental effort. Satisfying, and good.
In spite of constant news of not-so-good events invading our consciousness every day, there is much good to be appreciated in this life if we have eyes to see it.
What are some of your “good life” moments?
