When you point out a bundle of balloons tied to a produce stand to your balloon-loving child because you’re as interested in enjoying the moment with him as you are in buying groceries.
When you blow a kiss to the produce stocker for voluntarily getting a courtesy balloon for your child and you realize that you’re blowing the kiss out of gratitude and not as a habitual farewell.
When you briefly make eye contact with a stranger at the grocery store and feel a split second of connection passed through a knowing grin; he saw you tug on the string of your toddler’s complimentary balloon so that it would have clearance through the entryway.
Opportunities for joy are floating all around.
Take a moment to notice them.
