Overflowing

Some days I surprise myself.

Like this morning, for instance…

I feel joy to overflowing on a regular basis now. And that is a very new experience for me. I had heard it was possible and, for a long time, believed it to be for everyone but me. Thing is, though, it – this overflowing joy feeling – is for everyone simply for the asking. And then, the receiving. My hang up was the receiving part. I asked and asked, but then did not sit still long enough to receive.

And now, as I hold this joy, I am humbled and inspired and feel so deeply blessed. Deeply enough that, as I looked at the clouds this morning that were swollen with much needed moisture and I heard the birds singing, I felt tears in my eyes. Tears of absolute joy.

I am filled to overflowing.
