It was great to hear from so many of you that it touched something in you and made you feel less alone.
Along those same lines, if you haven't yet watched the video on the home page of my website, I hope you'll do so now.
I share my journey from battling depression to creating a life of celebration. It'll help you understand why seeking and creating these "pinpricks of light" is so essential. (And why I talk about 'em so much!)
I love hearing from you. If you're visiting on the blog, leave a comment below. Or email me.
Seek celebration, even in the dark corners,
P.S. If you haven't had a chance to listen to last week's audio, listen now! I'll give a little spoiler to say that there's a coconut in there. I especially love what one reader, Danny, saw about this: "A coconut is hard on the outside, and it can appear that there's no way to open it. But if we recognize that with some effort we can open it, and make that effort, it's worth it because of the sweetness available to us once we do. In the same way, it's worth using whatever tools we have to break through the hard shell (iron wall) of suffering because the experience of the sweetness inside is such a great reward for doing so."
Danny is so right. It is worth the effort to use whatever tools we have to break through that iron wall of suffering. Even the smallest sliver of joy can make a difference.
P.P.S: If you like the video on my home page, I'd be so grateful if you will scroll down to the bottom of that web page and click on "share" so others can find out about the simple practice of pinpricks of light.
