Some ways to feel good are bubble baths with candles, trips, meals with loved ones, shopping, driving nice cars, cooking good food. I like all those too, and seeing my daughters and dear friends.
I have been in California for three full days and have experienced heart-filling joy, serendipity and love. The first day I was here we went to see our old neighbors who lived in the house right below us. What began as a five-minute visit turned into longer chat, meet their kids and tour their RV.
Then, while experiencing a pre-Black Friday shopping spree, we ran into our former kid sitter when she recognized me just walking up an aisle. I haven’t seen her since her wedding over 10 years ago. We visited with her and her mom and her son (who I haven’t seen since he was a baby.) That beautiful serendipitous event of joy and reconnection really warms and fill up my heart.
Meeting up with two girlfriends for lunch also feels my heart and rises the meter! I am so grateful for my girlfriends. Another girlfriend even chased me down on Facebook to meet me somewhere for a chat. Lucky me!!
Tip: Stay connected…. it’s a heartwarming experience.
