Monkeypod Joy Rules

A L O H A From Honolulu!

 "Write your own rules for joy.
Consider: what has worked
in the past to bring joy to
you and to others? -

- What are the timeless truths
and dependable strategies
you have used – or might
choose to use in the future –
to bring yourself from
despair to joy?
Debra Orenstein

The monkeypod tree
is a sight to behold With its flowers
so pink and bold Take a moment to
appreciate its beauty
In morning light
Quite a sight!

Its blossoms fill the
air with sweetness as
The sun casts dappled
shadows on the ground.

Birds sing making a
Joyful atmosphere
It's a beautiful sight,
That improves my mood.
True sign that I'm in
This beautiful place.

A.I. Rules Of Joy:
"Make sure you are taking care of your basic needs. This includes getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly.
Connect with other people. Spend time with your loved ones, join a club or group, or volunteer in your community.
Find activities that make you happy. This could be anything from playing a sport to learning a new skill to spending time in nature.
Practice gratitude. Make time each day to reflect on the things you are grateful for.
Let go of negativity.
Don't hold on to grudges
or resentments.
Live in the present moment.
Focus on the here and now,
rather than dwelling on
the past or worrying
about the future.
Remember, joy is a choice.
It is something that you
have to work at, but
it is well worth it."

* When I use AI to write, I prompt based on what I'm getting at. I include phrases or suggestions I like. Then I consider what AI provides as raw material (based on my requests). I ruthlessly cut all but the choice parts that I change and edit to suit my voice. If I have an opening sentence or title, I'll prompt with THAT. In this case I asked AI to create Rules For Joy and used the above as it came up. I use BARD on Google Search page. If you have the little filter at top of your search that says: "Converse" click it and play! Look for it at top of the results to your next search
