Where do you find little nuggets of joy
Each and every day, do you need your radar as decoy
Or do you soak them up, with negativity have no truck, find joy in tiny and in big
What makes you smile, is it sometimes naughty
Or is it always pc, like in a laboratory
Kindness brings smiles, humour maybe a belly laugh, then all those myriad that make us larf
Joy to each might have different hues
Recognising and counting it, it’s important to choose
Instead of your cares holding sway, ferret out those joys hidden in every day.
What could they be?
Something simple, that you see
A message from a friend
Sharing a moment
An email or text to send
A smile from a stranger
The song of a bird
That shaft of sunshine
Beautiful music you just heard
Gifting your time to help another
Playing a joke on sister or brother
Sharing the joy of others
A hand being touched
A quick list off the top of my head
So many others, lots to spread.
Please add to my list of joys to savour.
