Well, I've got to say I'm struggling a bit this week. The fibromyalgia pain with the associated migraines is close to doing me in.
As I sit here and wonder what it is I'm lovin' about life I find my focus shifting from myself to the joy of the people around me. You could say, I'm dabbling in a bit of "mudita".
Firstly, I'm lovin' that I just dropped the hubster off to the airport for his trip to New Zealand. He's headed to the World Master's Games in Auckland for ten days of basketball. Basically it's the Olympics for old people, so it's a pretty big deal. Yay for him!
Secondly, I'm lovin' that my boy's soccer season is about to commence and he's finally had his first training session. He's been very antsy of late just itching to get back on the field. The recent selection to division one means he's back with the team of guys he played with last year which makes him happy. Yay for him!
Thirdly, I'm lovin' that casting season is about to begin for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week which means my girl gets to make regular trips to Sydney to try her luck in the big city. She's working hard on her health and fitness right now, plus she's getting ahead of all her school assignments to ensure she's ready for the many days off school. There's no guarantee that she'll get a spot, but at least she's putting her best foot forward. Yay for her!
Finally, I'm lovin' that I get to hang out with you guys for the day as you link up your Lovin' Life posts. Yay for me!
The Buddhist teachings of Mudita is another great way to age positively.
Have you ever heard of Mudita?
Do you get pleasure from the joy of others?
What are you lovin' about life this week?
Without further ado, let's get this linky started.
