Cultivate Joy

All of us have computer screen savers. What is yours?

A picture of a loved one? Children playing? A friend?

Is your screen saver a scene from a beach, a mountain, or a field of flowers?

My guess is that it is something that brings you joy. You can have screen savers in your mind too.

That’s how you cultivate joy. Pick a scene from your childhood - not the one where you felt shame, blame, or judgement.

NO! Pick the scene where you experienced joy. Can you recall the details? Sights? Smells? Colors? Feelings? OK. Now hit “save.” Remember it!
