So Far, So Good

Blogging the journey...

Sunday 6 December 2015


Arwen Lynch, Professional Joy Seeker and Tarot reader, shared this quote in a recent newsletter and I loved it, so like she always says about seeking joy, I'm passing it on.
Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey ... delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord [or your preferred deity/energy - jmk] for letting you have the ride.
-- Jenkin Lloyd Jones

Don't worry about finding bliss. Just seek joy y'all. Pass it on.
