Joy and Resilience

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, I want to

talk about the relationship

between joy and resilience.

So I'll just start by saying that

I'm a strong proponent of play,

joy and laughter as being key to

our internal resilience toward the

more trying moments of our life.

Positive emotions replenish our energy.

They make us more creative and they

often renew our optimism for the

moments of life that are difficult.

And so instead of simply trying to survive

difficult times, which we can often get

into a pattern of doing, can we also

give ourselves permission to experience

what is still good, even if it's small?

You know, these could be a moments

of, you know, during a period of

grief where you walk outside and you

can feel the sun on your face or the

coolness of the breeze on a summer day.

The small moments that we can

pass by, but we just let ourselves

drink them in for a moment.

Sometimes it can be hard to take

them in fully or to feel a big

smile, especially if we're going

through something difficult.

But these little pockets of letting

ourselves feel neutrality, but also then

some joy, some ease, some pleasure do

replenish us to continue to show back up.

And I also want to acknowledge that

sometimes during difficult experiences,

we're just brought to our knees.

And trying to find the positive can just

feel like a subtle form of oppression

against the part of us that really

just needs to collapse and surrender

and feel the fullness of the pain.

So I get that as well.

This is more of just a long-term approach

that we can take in relationship to our

resilience, whether it's going through

something difficult or just in our

day-to-day life of making sure we are

staying open to the good experiences

and recognizing that those are important

to our ability to show up for the

more difficult experiences of life.

So whatever you're going through,

I'm sending you a lot of love.

Thank you for your practice and let's

settle in for today's meditation.
