Day 2744 - The Lovin Life Linky - The Mudita edition

What are we lovin' this week?

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.

  1. I've never heard of the word Mudita before, but now I have I love it!

    I definitely take great pleasure in the success of others around me, in my family succeeding in their schooling and sporting endeavors, in fellow bloggers gaining sponsored posts and increasing their readership and engagement, and in work colleagues gaining promotions.

    I'm definitely of the view that we can all succeed by supporting each other and being surrounded by others succeeding is a good thing!

    It's good to hear how well your family is going!


  2. Leanne, I love the theory of mudita. It's an endlessly inspiring and fulfilling take on life and the joys of others.

    Take care and much love

  3. That is a new expression to me but not a new idea..I like that we can do that as humans as I am sure it helps our connectedness and need to belong. Sounds like everyone in your immediate family is on track and doing well with what they love. Pain and its associated factors are very hard to accept within themselves so I hope you can wrap yourself with warmth and love to heal the physical issues. Take care, Leanne! Denyse xx

  4. Can't say that I have heard Mudita before. I would be happy to go to NZ to play basketball!!

  5. Thanks for the link up. This week I am loving getting back to blogging for fun.

  6. Yay for the Mudita. I'm probably better at feeling happy for friends and family than I am for others. Sometimes I feel envious of others' success or motivation.

  7. I've never come across the word Mudita before but I love the concept! Hope you are feeling much better soon so I can have a feeling of Mudita about you!

  8. Sorry to hear you are struggling with the pain. I've been pretty much bed bound for the past week. Swelling and pain is through the roof. I've actually managed to blog today but for a sponsored, giveaway post that is for Perth, so haven't linked up. Just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you. R x

  9. Wow---I had a migraine last week, so I totally know what you're going through. Sending healing thoughts, Leanne!

  10. Ok, that's my new favourite word!

  11. I hadn't heard of Mudita but thanks for sharing it and for your amazing attitude to life. I hope you are feeling much better soon and thank you as always for the link up :-)

  12. I've never heard of Mudita but I like him and his teachings! It's a great philosophy to have in life - to soak up the goodness around you and be happy for others. Yay for you all! #LovinLifeLinky


I love hearing your thoughts! Keep them rolling in :)
