What tickles my fancy has evolved over the years. When I was younger, I had high expectations for outcomes. The stars had to align as well as other elements needing to fall into place in order for me to find some Joy.

Nowadays, it can be as simple as hot cup of tea that hits my Sweet Spot. I don’t see it as a matter of lowering my expectations, but rather becoming bewildered more often.

Maybe it’s age, maybe it’s wisdom – probably both – but the simplicity from which this realization comes is rather liberating. I’m able to remain present in the moment and soak it in instead of looking forward with unrealistic expectations to the next one while completely missing out on what’s right in front of me.

What’s your Sweet Spot?
