What Happiness! by Daria Palotti

Beloved Reader

A theme that’s bubbling up for me these days is simplicity. Every month, I enjoy hunting for the cover image for my newsletter, and this month I decided to search for “a cup of tea”. Enjoying a cup of tea is a simple and satisfying pleasure. I love the image I found. Or, to be more accurate, I’d say it found me! As soon as I glimpsed it, I had to stop and savour the feeling I got from the illustration. High heels kicked off, a good book, a steaming cup of tea, and a comfy chair. And..... simply gazing through a window, out into another world. A time to daydream, to relax, to regroup. She does not look like she is fitting in a quick break before the next “important” task, does she? She looks to me as though the world has come to a quiet stop, and there is ample space and time for sweet stillness. 


Some may call it “lazy”, some may say “it’s a waste of time”. Let’s face it, we are coerced to wear our busy-ness like a badge of importance, aren’t we? The harder you work, the more you succeed, right? But, what about the inevitable burn out.... what about running in circles, from task, to the next event or chore…..? So many things to get done, so little time.


Have you ever had a day off, and spent it “catching up” on your to-do list? I know I have, and all too often. It leaves me feeling that I never complete my tasks, yet I never fully rest. Well, it’s time for that to drop away. For good.


How about an unscheduled day? A day without demands, a day without digital media (how daring!), a day without pressure. And that includes the internal pressure of feeling guilty for claiming this time for one’s self.


I would like to propose that such a day actually recharges our spirits and souls. Basking in the sun. Reading a whole novel in one sitting. Daydreaming or napping all day, if that’s what feels delicious. Going for a walk. Singing or dancing. Lingering over a coffee (or tea) at a sweet café, alone or with a good friend. Visiting neighbourhoods or art galleries that you usually don’t see. Or... nothing at all.... just being…. And not one pang of guilt about any of it! Simply feeling pleasure in taking care of yourself in this radical and nourishing way. 


This investment in simple joy recharges our batteries, and reconnects us with our life force energy, our vitality. This energy is eternally available, and it is infinitely abundant. We forget this universal law when we get caught up in the spinning wheel of the world. And so here I am, reminding you (and myself) of how things really are. Back to basics, back to what really matters.


Let’s face it, when our hearts and souls are full, everything else falls into place with elegance and ease. We feel better about ourselves, and about everything. Our creativity flows, and we actually get more accomplished when we get around to it, and with more joy and satisfaction.... So, are you with me? Let’s remember together, to dedicate ourselves to some seriously delicious downtime.


May we savour simplicity and find our way back to our True Self.

Tarot: The Sun

The Sun energizes, illuminates, purifies, and warms. It boosts our immune system and our moods. It is the powerful source of all Life.

This card explodes with positive radiant energy, and with childlike innocence and exuberance. Things are crystal clear.

The Sun invites us to celebrate life! Spend the day doing something that lights you up; something that recharges you.

Even on the most overcast day, The Sun is shining... and its energy is always within our reach. Remember what is innocent and fresh within yourself, and engage with it. Turn on your inner light and shine brightly!
