My friend Valerie has the power to materialize #joy out of thin air.
For the last two weeks, we’ve been co-living together. Every time she spots me from across the room, she lets out a cry of delight, runs towards me, and wraps me in a massive bear hug as if we were reconnecting for the first time in decades.
It’s one of my favorite moments of the day, and the best part is that the entire experience is manufactured.
We simply made the #decision one day to greet each other with unbridled enthusiasm.
It makes me wonder: What other triggers can we plant in our lives to self-generate the feelings we crave?
