On being surprised by joy

The thing we don’t expect in times of significant shift or transition is joy.

Or colour when we think that everything is dying back.

Or a sense of overwhelming relief when we finally let go of something that has shaped us in the past.

Yet, along with the realisation that we are not alone – it is there – just waiting to be noticed.

I wonder, what are you experiencing that is surprising?

Or the ‘gift’ that you didn’t expect to receive.
