Sparking Joy.

I’ve been watching Tidying up with Marie Kondo (anyone seen it? On Netflix. So satisfies my ocd aspect 😁). She talks about only keeping things that spark joy and thanking the things that don’t and letting them go. It’s a pretty good life tool as well, to surround yourself with people who spark joy within you and to do all the things that spark joy – and let slide all the things that don’t (with thanks of course).

The universe rewards us when we are in high vibrational states of love and joy. Many things happen in life to get us down and while there is (and should be) the space for sadness, try to find the little things that give you that spark of joy. I don’t mean that you should force anything or pretend to feel anything you don’t feel but just try and do something that makes you feel happy. Or just be with someone that makes you feel happy.

I’m reminded of this poem by Rose Milligan

Dust If You Must
by Rose Milligan

Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
To paint a picture, or write a letter,
Bake a cake, or plant a seed;
Ponder the difference between want and need?Dust if you must, but there’s not much time,
With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb;
Music to hear, and books to read;
Friends to cherish, and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
With the sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair;
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it’s not kind.
And when you go (and go you must)
You, yourself, will make more dust.

Spark away today ✨
