[Lent 14] joy sadhana

excerpt from a conversation after morning prayer:
me: "OK."
FCS-Ian: "Is that your judging 'OK'? It's okay; I have one, too. The two of us should probably never be in a confessing group together, because we both should probably be confessing that, but neither of us feels guilty about it -- well, I shouldn't presume; *I* don't feel guilty about it."


It was like a gorgeous summer day out today -- what even?


"Joy Sadhana is a daily practice in the observation of joy."

"Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up." --Anne Lamott

Good things about today:
  • I did not feel cranky!
  • I got a slice of carrot cake for doing a Spangler run for Ian.
  • [redacted, v.2]
  • Pubs continue to not be my preferred place to interact, but "Ecclesiastical Council" was enjoyable (and The Field has tasty french fries).
Things I did well today:Things I am looking forward to (doing [better]) tomorrow:
["anything that you're looking forward to, that means you're facing tomorrow with joy, not trepidation," as Ari says]
  • Friday!
