A Practice of Delight
Many people have a gratitude practice, and I do too. Interestingly, this practice of daily delight has a kinship gratitude, but for me is lighter, more bite-size, and more mindful. It simultaneously sharpens my mind and celebrates presence.
It is amazing how quickly the study of delight makes delight more evident. It’s like you develop a delight radar and become aware that you are delighted many, many times a day.
For me, I take two walks a day and really open myself up to the five senses and what delights me.
I’ve been delighted to see dancing birds, beautiful flowers, breathtaking sunsets, touching human interactions.
I’ve been delighted by the smell of honeysuckle, fresh cut grass, and charcoal grills.
I’ve been delighted to hear cackling laughter bubbling up from my neighbor’s yard, singing birds, hooting owls, and buzzing cicadas.
I’ve been delighted to taste coffee in the morning, iced tea at lunch, and a fabulous glass of red wine.
And, I’ve been delighted to feel the lamb’s ear in my garden, the soft velvety fur of my dog, and the soft skin of my foster baby.
This is just a sampling of delights, lingering with small things that are actually pretty big. And, my life is more joyful as a result.
