When you’re in a jam, INTEGRITY will preserve you.
(Did anyone else get the jam/preserve play on words? I actually am writing this soon after having peanut butter on an English muffin, and was craving jam. Or preserves. But we didn’t have any.)
I talk about this aspect of integrity in this week’s wrap-up video:
So we won the WOW lottery! It’s a week to be DELIGHTED.
Even more so than usual.
As I always say:
I’m interested to know what delight looks like to YOU?
For me, it’s hearing John Russo sing The Way You Look Tonight or Fly Me to the Moon.
It’s the show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix that I binge-watched giggling non-stop this past week. Who knew being a former cult member could be funny?
When Duane visits me in my office and rubs my shoulders…*sigh*. Or we start singing Jimmy Fallon’s “Tight Pants” song together – yippee!
Don’t tell me you’ve never heard it?
Now the song WILL be in your head for days to come. Duane and I like to change the words to fit the moment. “Every body’s talkin’ bout my ______….”
You get the idea.
Unique cards that are like little works of art. Beautifully wrapped packages (it doesn’t even matter what’s in them.) The perfect cup of coffee. Payday!
Triple digit Scrabble words and episodes of Modern Family!
Life is full of potholes, speed bumps and sometimes sink holes. I believe that the little delights in life are the exclamation points and highlighters that keep our stories moving forward.
Please know that you deserve every single delightful thing that comes your way. And if one hasn’t come along in a while, it should be your priority to do something about it.
Buy YOURSELF those flowers. Stop waiting for someone to take you to that restaurant – just go (sit at the bar and order dinner there if it helps.) Carve out an afternoon to binge-watch an entire series you haven’t caught up on. (If it’s Grey’s Anatomy, proceed with caution. With McDreamy gone and Japril on the rocks, it’s rough going…)
Just do it. Whatever your IT is, treat yourself.
“Let your heart be light” is a great line in a Christmas carol, but good advice all year long.
Notice it says LET.
It’s a decision; a choice – and it’s all yours.
Have a delightful week, dear friends –
