Episode 112: Everyone's Rooting Just for You


There's such a wealth of happiness to be found in everything big and small, from the joy of learning to juggle to bigger joys such as time spent with people who love us so much. Everyone's on your side, cheering you on.

Walking into an air-conditioned building on a scorching hot day.

Listening to a lecture from a grandparent, knowing they want the best for you. 

When a friend calls with some very good news, such a delight to cheer them on. 

Finding something in your room you thought you’d lost forever.

Running a spontaneous errand in the middle of the day.

Sneaking a taste of cookie dough when you’re making cookies.

Trying to juggle, how impossible it feels to keep so many things in the air at once.

Making an amazing smoothie with all your favorite kinds of fruit.

Finding the perfect pair of jeans that fit just right, on sale.

When you’re at the beach and a wave washes up the perfect sea shell on the sand right in front of you.

Wandering through an orange tree orchard, the bright oranges hanging low, the smell of oranges thick in the air.

Finding a box of pictures you’d never seen before, beloved family members and old gatherings.

Showing someone else a movie you love, seeing it through their eyes.

That dark tomato color that’s everywhere lately, the color of red roof tiles, adobe bricks, tomatoes left too long on the vine.

Seeing things from another point of view.

The unbridled joy of a weekend, the bittersweet feel of a Sunday evening.

Floating in a pool on your back, looking up at the sky above and the water surrounds you and lifts yout.
