How does one properly express the feelings of pure delight?
Images of children running and playing with careless abandon,
giddy with glee on a sunset lit hilltop comes to my mind as expressions of pure joy.
If happiness is because of happenings then joyfulness must be inspite of happenings.
It is a conscious decision to momentarily suspend all thoughts about the negativity that abounds and give in to feelings of delight, ecstasy or enjoyment.
I sit here on the verandah, 'lapping my lappie', watching the pouring rain and enjoying the coolness it offers, all I can think of is
WHAT A GREAT DAY TO BE ALIVE!!!
