Feel Pleasure… What’s the Worse That Could Happen?
Pleasures are really interesting topic to talk about because there’s always don’t get too excited or don’t count your eggs before they hatch attitude. Don’t get too excited about that audition because you might not get the job. We are not allowed to feel pleasure in life and be excited.
Why not? We are adults. We can handle disappointment if it should come our way. If we don’t allow ourselves to feel pleasure until certainty is present, we miss the whole first feelings of the joy of the positive expectancy of what might happen.
Allow yourself to feel the pleasure of the moment. Any moment. There is always something to bring you pleasure in any moment. If someone gives you a compliment, take it in. Be pleased.
If you are looking at a sunset appreciate the beauty surrounding you and take pleasure that you are one with the great gifts from mother earth. Really feel those little arms on your body when your child gives you a hug. Lose yourself in the unconditional love that child has for you. Feel the pleasure. Let the pleasure in. Let it in to energize you and nourish you.
We can learn a lot from children. They know how to take pleasure in the simplest of things. Somewhere along the line they lose that and become timid adults, afraid to get excited about things that bring them joy.
Learn from your children and help to instill in them that it’s okay to feel pleasure as an adult.
As they learn from you, you will learn from them. Enjoy!>
